Folksy Friday - To the Beach!

In honour of our Family Day Out to the seaside I have decided that my very first Folksy Friday should have a seaside theme. A request on Folksy forums flooded me with beautiful seaside and beach themed pretties so I was hard pressed to pick my favourites but here they are. 

First up - I absolutely adore Ocean Ripple Sea Glass Ring by Chicita at Gimme That Thing. I love the idea of salvaging 'sea glass' that has been washed smooth by the sea and sand and made beautiful... on the same theme is the stunning Wire wrapped sea glass necklace from the Beach Shack Project

This cute little Beach Hut Keyring from Buttercup Boutique would make a great decoration for your beach bag and AmyOrangeJuice's cute Stained Glass and Driftwood boat mobile will look gorgeous in a sunny window and remind you of the coast all year round.

I love all the beautiful, hand dyed yarns available at Wharfedale Woolworks. This is a lovely summery cotton DK yarn called On The Beach . I also love this black and white print from The Stone House entitled Boardwalk - it is so evocative and takes me back to family holidays spent building sandcastles and fishing in rock pools...

Talking of rock pools I think the bubble effect on this glass sushi dish called 'Ocean Floor' is very unusual and very pretty. And finally this great 'To the Beach' card  from Original Art by Clare says it all.

Happy Folksy Friday everyone - have fun at the beach :)
