Some Seaworthy Ideas

Do you know what this is?

How about this one?

 I'm guessing that it is meant to hold a nautical signal flag, but I'm not sure.

All I know is that when I came across them in my favorite boating consignment store the first thing that came to mind was how perfect they would be displaying my bracelets!

 I'm using this one to hold the bracelets or wrist belts that I've been fashioning from vintage belts to sell in my Etsy Shop.

I have started gathering up my costume bracelets and bangles to display on this one so I can see them all at once.

I don't think I will run out of room any time soon!

 It would also serve as a cool paper towel holder in a nautically inspired kitchen.

Tom, who owns the boating consignment store is completely bemused by me.


Just last weekend I spied this "hand rail" and promptly announced that I had to have it and would figure out something great to do with it!

 It took me all of 15 minutes to realize that it was exactly what I've been looking for to open my side gate!

After a bit more scrounging around I found the perfect piece of bronze chain to make it a reality.

 I couldn't get home fast enough to try it out! 

 I not only love how unique it is but how well it functions!

At my next party I'm going to make the guests enter through the side yard just so they can use the hand rail!

Speaking of our side yard...

how exciting is this?

Our tomato plants have gone crazy!

I can't wait to see RED!

Hello just wanted to give you a quick heads up and let
you know a few of the pictures aren't loading correctly. I'm not sure
why but I think its a linking issue. I've tried it in two different internet browsers and both show the same outcome.
