beach christmas




Can you believe it's nearly that time of year again? .. 
The years are flying by waaay too quickly.





I've been getting organised in my etsy shop and have even done some Christmas shopping, early for a change. Hopefully being prepared will take the stress out of the silly season.




 A natural, white coastal Christmas inspired by the colours of the beach.





Natural gift tags that can also be used as place cards on a Christmas table or as simple decorations on a tree. 
The starfish and anchor cards could be used year round.. 




Here's a simple wrapping idea for someone special.. Brown craft paper wrapping, a paper doily, striped and white ribbon with a single shell tied to the top.




Handmade shell decoration.. I like the contrast of driftwood and white against a chalkboard.






Have you thought about Christmas?

  1. Hi Cheryl. did you say Christmas? I know. so close, yet i'm still so far away. Just popped over to your blog for a quick visit this morning, it's gorgeous as always. I sigh looking at your beautiful stuff and wish I had more time to be creative. I suppose life just dictates in other directions sometimes. that's ok. I particularly love your shell ornaments, the round shell clusters and the single shells. Have a good week. hugs, Jane x

    Here, in the South of France, it begins to be cold and the sea is shaken.
