Going Sailing.....

Today my blog post is going to be all nautical! I am getting ready for my consignment shops and as I live on an Island, Prince Edward Island... my shops want nautical so I am getting in the mood to get started!

Here are a few things I love from some wonderful Etsy shops:
TrinketsNwhatnots - A metal button with an anchor on it has been wrapped with wire into a beautiful button ring.
Gorgeous gold and silver tones, with a nautical theme.

Shellsformysuzy - Beautiful pair of pillow covers from Robert Allen Outdoor collection. Navy blue background with sailboats in shades of royal blue, tan and cream. Although it is an outdoor fabric, it is light enough for indoor use also. Perfect beach accent for your home, vacation home or boat!

Justshellin - "Sunrise" seashell wreath is covered with softly-hued shells in natural shades of yellow, blue, orange and tan. The wreath is highlighted with an easily removable tan raffia ribbon and has a straw base.

TheUrbanLady - Black and Silver Anchor Earrings - Vintage buttons that wish to be your new earrings. size: 5/8 " (15mm)

TurtleXIII - White sea glass and an aquamarine swarovski starfist are wire wrapped to a sterling silver necklace. The sterling silver chain features textured oval links, and closes with a sterling silver lobster clasp. Necklace hangs 18 inches in length, plus over and inch for the dangle. This is real sea glass, collected by my friends and I on Topsail Beach in North Carolina during our "girls weekend".

And here are a couple of mine that will be going to shops:
Coffee Cup Sleeve -

Wonderful Quotes to live by!
