Do You Hear It?

The ocean that is...

I've got the itch ~ got to get to the beach soon~

Started taking all my chippy white, cream and grey
items out over the weekend~

I can hear the ocean calling me,
just a quick drive over
and then a bucket full of seashells away~

I'm going to get some more for my collection
soon I hope~

Summer's on the way...

Do you have that feeling yet?

Happy Week!

xoxo, Tracie


CIELO said...

Ahhhh, the ocean! Can you take me with you? Early, tomorrow morning maybe? We'll see you then! :)

Have a lovely day, sweetie....


Suzy said...

OH yes I have a feeling of summer, since we have some real tropical temperature. It would be much easier if we had a nice blue ocean to cool off, but nothing.... just heat.


Lisa & Alfie Wilson said...

Hmmmmm.....I know where you could go!
I am feeling the same way Tracie. All the window dressings wide open, sunshine pouring in, all the white linens out, white, light, bright.
Love Lisa & Alfie

Hi Tracie :)

I miss the beach so much! Tell the ocean I said "hi old friend" :)

We just started getting spring, so summer is still in the distance, but I can feel it coming....

Have a beautiful day my sweet friend.

Brenda Kula said...

Oh, I wish I were close to the ocean! I want to collect seashells so bad.

Did you get to go to Healdsburg Antique Faire this weekend ?. I did not even know there was one until, my girlfriend and I decided we needed to get out and she wanted to show me their downtown. And what a surprise to run into the faire. Bought a couple of things. It was a great day with beautiful weather to go with it.
Glad I was able to inspire you with my kitchen redo


The Old Painted Cottage said...

Tracie, we had planned on going to the beach all weekend long, but the grumpy weather had other plans for us. Oh well, there's always next weekend.


Lisa & Alfie Wilson said...

Sweetie, I wish I had that feeling of summer coming, its winter here in Melbourne, Australia so we have the heater on and the extra blankets out. I wish I could go to the beach with you! :)

Dear Tracie,
Hope Zeke gets to go with you to the beach, my dogs love romping on the sand! You reminded me how close we are to the beach, just a skip from my house...ummm, maybe 5 min. down the hill! When you live so close you tend to forget to go...

Hope you are having a beautiful week so far! Thanks so much for your precious words of encouragement on my BFF moving away, I miss her so much already!

Hi Tracie,
Funny you should post about this. I spent yesterday summerizing my accessories and making the house feel breezier (is that a word???). I love seashells and I bought some starfish yesterday and some sand and made a centerpiece in a hurricane. Not so unique I know but I painted my starfish pink and blue.....oooooh!!!!! so pretty! Please collect some shells for me. Maybe we could ride our bikes to the ocean and pick some up together in our little vintage buckets. Have a wonderful day. So happy to hear from you.


A Romantic Porch said...

I do have the summer feeling...wish I could walk the beach with you. The lazy days of summer...aahhh!xorachel

Hi Tracie..
Thanks for the sweet comments about Pid. We gave the poor guy a proper burial last night. In my rose garden,is that proper? Anyway..when we look out the dining room(his spot) we can see his place of rest:)
I will be at the beach F
Friday with hubby. A nice break before the Summer and the whirlwind of kids and family vacation.
Are you visiting the Beach soon?

Joy at Cupids Charm said...

Ooooh, yes I can. We live near the Gulf of Mexico, but hardly ever make it over to the beach! They say you can tell the people who LIVE in Florida from the ones who visit. We are the ones with NO TANS! Your post makes me want to grab my beach chair for some seriously needed chill time! Happy weekend! xoxo ~ Joy

Penny @ Lavender Hill Studio said...

The ocean in NC where I live is about 6 hours from here. I am hoping to be on the coast late summer or early fall. I am going to Florida in a few weeks and will spend time on the beach then....

Would love to go to the beach with you. Stay tuned, thinking about quitting my job, it's just too much. I'll be waiting for ya.

P.S. Is there room enough for Jackson too?

Counting Your Blessings said...

Oh - I've had that same itch lately! OF course, here in the Midwest, there's no ocean. But Summers here mean watermelon parties and kids and no homeschool (yay) and late nights on the back porch and... oh, I just love Summer! =) Blessings.. Polly
