Folksy Friday - Oh I do like to be beside the Seaside..

This Folksy Friday blog post has a seaside theme, appropriate as I live in Brighton on the South coast. Now I must confess that although I live in fairly close proximity to the sea, ( Rottingdean beach is about 3 miles down the road, and on a clear day I can glimpse the sea from upstairs), I don't often take the trouble to go to the beach. I think a lot of us are guilty of ignoring the beauty on our doorsteps, we should all take more time out  to just enjoy our surroundings.

Here's this week's selection:

First we have a seaside themed memo board from  Honeysuckle Rose crafts

Next, some seaside themed Lavender bags from  The Crafty Little Cottage

Love this photographic print by  Spotty Dotty

A pair of cute hand painted egg cups by  Glassmagyck

A colourful Punch and Judy print by Eddie Saul Art

Next an unusual yacht design Solar powered  lantern from  Glow box Solar Lanterns

A great beach hut cushion from  Love Lottie textiles

A seahorse and starfish pendant by  Wishes onthe Wind

A child's seaside sundress from  Chick Pea Clothing

A pretty seaside pearl bracelet by  Jayfa Jewellery

Another bracelet, this time a pretty resin bangle from  Lillyangel Jewellery

A coastal cafetiere cosy by  seagullssouthwest

And the nearest thing to a seaside theme in my shop, a deckchair stripe iPad sleeve  Wild Rose Designs

Hope you enjoyed my selection,



  1. lovely selection, I live 20mins drive to the sea and like you don't go as much as I should. I think most people who live near the coast don't appreciate it.

  2. Great items. I wish I lived nearer the sea, although I'm closer now than I have ever been (about an hour). I love the lavender bags, they'd be great if you had a beach hut!

  3. lovely finds. I don't go to the seaside often enough, and it's a short bus/train ride for me!

  4. Love the memo board so pretty :)
    I wish I lived nearer the seaside.

  5. A lovely seaside collection.
