I am very fortunate to not only love my job but I also have the ability to spread my creative wings on a daily basis. 
On top of running my retail shop and handling client's design duties, I am able to shoot and write stories for a number of magazines. I also contribute tips to a few other blog sites.
The article I wrote yesterday was a breeze...
Seashells: Nature's Accessories
For a designer living on an island known for its stupendous shelling...this gig was priceless!
Here are a few pictures intended to inspire...

A tiny simple seashell can bring a smile, conjure a memory and encourage a daydream. So the next time you have the opportunity to walk along the beach, take time to pick up a special treasure or two. Think of it as a way to decorate with nature!


  1. You have the greatest job in the world--surrounded by natural beauty and beauty you create. Can you tell I am envious?

  2. Your post today reminds me of Anne's book "Gift from the Sea", Melinda. :) Just beautiful! Miss you, my new friend! Hope you're having a wonderful summer! ♥
