Nautical decorating brightly colored.

Some oldie but goodies for a guest or sun room.


Pillow are the quickest way to begin your look.


Add one pond yacht.


or speed boat if you prefer.


Great time and tide clock.



Signal flags add a fun touch as a window valance.


Oars turn them in to curtain rods or lean them against a wall.


Stash your treasure in a sailor's chest.


Makes a great night stand.


Small items can be kept handy in a signal flag wall pocket.


A faux trophy for fun.


Top it off with a nib pen writing set and
make some of your own treasure maps.

All photos and items by Authentic Models.
Many items can be found in online stores.

Hi Rita,
You know when you visit me it I am smiling. You know I always love what you inspire over here. I really have two sides to what inspires my soul and it is the South of France, and anything ocean/beach.

With winter creeping up on us, I hope it finds you well prepared for the storms that may hit.

Just remember I have a dry shelting place over here if you need a bunk :)

I am sure the holidays have you inspired and I cannot wait to see what you come up with :)

Thank you sweet friend for your beautiful visit.
xoxo

Good evening dearest beach-lover! Thank you for coming to visit with me today; it means so much to me that we can stop in to each other's worlds and sit for a while to ponder on what we all love...and the SEA is always a good stop for me, any time.

Enjoy a wonderful autumn evening! Anita
