Cherry Blossoms & a Sailboat

Pink blossoms & our Sailboat

Pink Cherry Blossoms are the quintessential springtime treat at our beach cottage. Liz and I filled several rooms with vases of the fragrant pink beauties to help brighten up the rainy days of late.

Though they don’t last long, the blooms are real showstoppers anywhere they are placed as well as very fragrant.

We loved how the flowers looked alongside our new little sailboat (isn’t it cute?).  We picked up this little cutie at a local store, Jack’s Country Store, to be exact and just fell in love with it!

The colors of the sailboat fit in perfectly with our new kitchen (details coming soon, lots of finishing touches still happening) and we simply think the sails, which look like ticking, are divine.  We found a couple of other little coastal accents too, but we’ll share those with you later :O)

Dig out those pruning shears and clip some branches of your favorite flowering tree for instant beauty in your beach home.

The branches don’t have to be perfect to be gorgeous! Let the natural curves of the branches drape over your vase for an interesting look.  Beach living is all about simple – not fussy!

It’s kinda funny how excited us beach girls can get over a little wooden sailboat…but it really is adorable!

Spring break is over so Liz is on her way back to Seattle and the old man and I are finishing up our kitchen (and now dining room, how did that happen?).  We’ll be blog hopping with Beverly at Pink Saturday, Show Off Your Cottage Monday, Blue Monday and Masterpiece Monday and these other blog parties – so come by and meet some new people. We hope you all have a lovely weekend.
