Going Coastal on your...

Things that make me happy

1. A three day weekend
2. Anything with a sequin sewn on it
3. Anything nautical

I grew up on the Massachusetts coast in a small historic fishing town.  Each summer was spent on the beach avoiding jellyfish stings and a big brother who liked to bury me in the sand. 

Now as a big girl and live in a cul-de-sac about two hours from the North Carolina coast.  You can take the girl away from the beach but you can't take the beach away from the girl.  To remind me of home I throw lobster parties with decorations yes I am a dork and as you can see get waaayyy to excited about it.

Today I opened an email from Kirkland's and saw they have a new line called "a touch of the coast".   Come to mama!  Decorating coastal can be hard as it's easy to get a little hokey with accessories but Kirkland's hit a home run here. Below are a few items that are making my New England heart go pitter patter.

I can't wait to bring home a few of these treasures to remind me a little of my roots.
