“Fair Winds and Following Seas.”

One really neat thing about Navy Life…it is a pretty sure bet that you will be living relatively close to a large body of water or, in the case of Okinawa Japan, surrounded by several large bodies of water. Summer is the perfect season to bring the beauty of the water inside by introducing the lovely soft colors of the sea into your decor…


The sea glass and pottery represent many hours of simply combing isolated beach areas in Okinawa while enjoying the sand and sun. I love the way the vintage mason jars reflect the afternoon light!

Antique Japanese fishing floats add the gorgeous color tones of the East China Sea. I love to display them in my Moses basket from the Philippines.  


The beautiful capiz shell balls were part of our wedding decor…held by the water of course. More sea glass! I just could not collect enough…I miss my beach. 


The French bottle drying rack gets a Summer glow from hand blown glass balls that reflect the colors of the sea. 


She may have been born in the mountains but I think the Princess shares my love of the water….and collecting!

  1. This is all so very beautiful, I don’t know what I like the most! I have never seen those Japanese fishing floats before, they are exquisite. The capiz shell balls are lovely too. Sea glass is so much fun to collect and display. I love the many unique ways you choose to display your collections. The Moses basket is something I’d like to add to my collection. “The Princess” is the most beautiful of all, of course! The photo is so adorable with a magnificent ocean view. Thank-you for this wonderful post.

    Your little baby girl is so precious on the shore. I bet you spend hours there.

  3. Sweet post! There is nothing quite like beach-combing with a little one on a warm summer afternoon. So funny, but I have a very similar photo ready for posting with a post for Monday. Iconic!

  5. Amy, aren’t we all naturally drawn to the water? I know I love siting on the beach, reading a book, listening to waves roll up on the shore. I don’t live anywhere near water, but that’s what vacations are for. Love your sea glass collection. Thanks for sharing at Your Inspired Design Link Party.
