life's a beach

well, actually, the theme for this week's friday's finds is beach/seaside finds...i was trying to make a funny...(i think the dh is rubbing off me WAY too much, lol!)... anyhoo...the other day, when i was junking with my friend allison, i came across this sweet oil painted by a woman named beverly wescott for a mere $4 usd!!! i can't believe the price, first of all! & second of all, why would anyone discard this lovely piece at a consignment shop!!!! it just goes to show you that the saying is true: one man's trash is another's treasure... & this certainly is for me! it is entitled "lake michigan"...how cool is this???>>>because joe & i are heading up to door county (our 1st visit there) & we've rented a cute little cottage for the week on the lake michigan side! i think this is a sign to bring my paints, brushes & sketchpads up there (especially seeing that i do not own a laptop>>>waaaaah!>>>& i will be experiencing wicked blogging withdrawals while we're away>>>double, triple, quadruple waaaaaaah! lol)... well my pretties, what has the tide turned up by you? oh pretty please with sand sugar on top, share your fab beach/seaside find(s) (as well as non-beachy items too) on the "official" flickr group here OR leave a comment with your link...remember, sharing is a good thing!

    so beautiful...how cute, Friday's for us is our Beach Day Picnics with friends. But it's raining out today so we won't be able to go to the beach to find some treasures...we'll have to find some beachy stuff indoors. enjoy the Cape Code of the Midwest (Door County). wish we were going with...relax, create and be free! xoxo looney

    Have a wonderful time Mary Ann. You can probably find a 'beach treasure' while you are there. It is truly a gorgeous place!
