Sea Glass Light Boxes...

I started making 3D light boxes last year and so far they have been a hit!  These take a long time to make - but are well worth it.  The subtle low watt lighting illuminates the light box... creating a soft glow - perfect for a night light!  Each light box is signed & dated... and is a great gift for friends and family!

Transforming a Small Place into a Cool Space

When I decided to move my older daughter in the upstairs bedroom - we needed to give it a bit of a make over and style it for a teenager. The room is narrow and long with a small, small closet that is also used as a doorway to the storage space/attic. In the closet we put hanging storage caddies to create more storage and organization in a tight space. On the walls - We used Benjamin Moore - Aurora Paint to get that one coat look. We ended up having to go over the yellow twice as the aqua wasn't covering enough.

I picked up a vintage vanity and repainted it - putting new hardware on all furniture. With all the trim and floor repainted an off-white - we painted the furniture to coordinate. Throw in a few storage items and accents and presto - a fun and functional room for teenage girl! It has a beachy, surfer vibe to it... hang ten!

Journey to the Shore...

Oceans of blue capture bits of history
Relics that were once known
And some still remain to us a mystery
Shards of glass, pottery, porcelain and stone

Transcending through the waves of time
Far beyond where they began
Each journey different and so sublime
Reaching near and distant lands

Surf gently laps the sun soaked shores
Seafoam turns to frothy white
And brings about gifts and lore
Of mermaids and shipwrecks alike

Footprints in the sand are left behind
But slowly disappear
Searching for that one rare find
Glistening in the warmth… a souvenir

Soft greens remind of something sweet
While cobalt sends a warning
Red held wine for the elite
Lilac shades the sun is turning

A bounty the sea has left behind
For others to reclaim
Destined again to be refined
“Sea Glass” we call it by name.
