Loving Beautiful Details by the Seashore

The last few months, I've taken a bit of a break from Etsy.  Not because I was tired of all of its amazing shops and offerings...but because quite frankly, I bought a little too much and was running out of room.  

My decoration style definitely leans to the less is more look...so I found I was buying things on Etsy that I liked...but just keeping them in a cabinet and rotating them in and out.  So I recently gave away many of my treasures that I don't have room for - so that I can spread the Etsy love to friends and family.  So with that - I've started to spend a little more time - browsing around,  getting ready for holiday shopping that's hard to believe - is right around the corner. 

So with that - I wanted to feature one of my very favorite Etsy Shops...Beautiful Details by the Seashore.  Carol and her husband Andrew are an amazing husband and wife team (she's the Mermaid...he's the Surfer) that share a passion for all things about the ocean.

Here are some of my favorite things that are currently listed in Carol's shop.  














  





I've purchased several of Carol's bottles for my home...which I absolutely treasure...and one of her painted whelks with an air plant.  The attention to detail and care she puts into each of her creations makes them so special.  

I hope you enjoy viewing my selections.  It's hard for me to pick my favorite...I think I like the weathered sign that says "On this site in 1897, nothing happened".  That's pretty cute.  


Which piece is your favorite?

That sign is very cute but I'm torn between the VW bug and the mermaid! Great shop, thanks for sharing!

I adore the VW with the surf board. I'm heading to the shop...hopefully it fits my budget. It's the perfect touch for our guest room...

When are you coming to St Pete? Maybe we can meet for coffee...or at Robyn's store.

Well, I am drooling over that gorgeous chalkboard! It is stunning! And the bottles and the vignettes that she created are beautiful! Oh, and I can not forget those mermaids, love it all!! By the way, how is your air plant doing? I purchased one out here, it is ok, but doesn't look like it's growing much!!

Loved the sign but the napkin rings were really beautiful. I love all things connected to the shore and you showed me a new place to visit. The grandkids are back in school so I hope to be around a bit more. Take care.

I absolutely love the beach theme decorations. For my dream house, I know that I'll be picking up some decor that reflects a laid back beach style.
