As the snow is falling outside my window this Saturday morning, I'm browsing trough some old Cape Cod pics from last summer and dream away.
I don't recall where they are all from.
This sail cloth duffel bag shop is from Main Street, Chatham though.
I love the classic Cape Cod houses with their characteristic weathered shingles and white trim. I could live very happily in one of those houses above, with all my blue and white striped shirts, neatly folded in a walk in closet and an assortment of Sperry boat shoes by the door.
I'm not sure what it is about the sea, beach towns, marinas and nautical images and patterns that captures me.
I find red white and blue, especially in striped form,
to be just stunning.
You should know how many blue and white striped shirts I have in my closet. I can't get enough.
I think the stripes magically take me to a happy place - the ocean.
Old ships in the marina with names that makes your imagination wander... I find them captivating...
They pull me in.
Don't you wonder how?
I am a nautical goddess!
(No, not me, silly, her, Artemis.)
Old and rusty with a simple (seemingly random) number just enhances the beauty of the ship.
I wouldn't like to have a rusty boat myself (if I had one), but I could look at somebody else's boat and think it's a "beaut".
An old weathered and worn pulley in all it's charm.
Would love to put it on my wall.
I am dreaming away to the approaching summer and to the coast.
I can almost hear the waves and the seagulls on the beach and feel the warmth of the sun that is about to set.
This is a place that makes me happy.
