I love these white linen window shades
and the tiny rosebud lamp shades
The curtains I want... Emmie knop
The engolf bistro chairs in antique brown... I love the rustic farmhouse look of them.
We are getting them in dark brown/black to go with our round kitchen table. They also come in white.
Can you guess where I am going this weekend?

This is our hallway going into my bedroom. A messy vignette I'm calling nordic romance. A crown chandie, chippy framed photo of Kiera Knightly, a new bird journal and rustic wood with iron.
into my bedroom of Rachel Ashwell white ruffles.
with faded blue roses
our bathroom suite in whites and grey
my favorite way to travel around town
my seawashed studio behind the french doors
new R.A sacred heart with My Petite Maison antique rosary
chippy antique whites
Vintage buffet from my mom with chippy clock above where huge white star used to be. I also removed the stack of white platters and put the vintage-style fan for an industrial look.
A painting of the sea from my lovely friend Rayanne. Isn't it beautiful. A new treasure in our home.
The colors are the exact greys and sea blues of Sea Cottage. I will cherish it always.
Our coffee and tea station with my favorite vintage farm painting
and bistro seating in the kitchen nook. I'm hoping to get the ingolf bistro chairs from ikea this weekend, to replace the norvald chairs that are now with our farmhouse table in the sitting room.
Time for tea...it's been a beautiful week with windows open to hear the spring rain.
Hope you are all well.

Mother's Day is just around the corner so I thought I would begin listing my Seawashed Roses in the shop, in case anyone is looking for a one-of-a-kind gift to give. These Roses are Original Paintings by me, Kerrie Sanderson, in shades of faded pinks and blues. They are painted in acrylic on stretched canvas. They are signed on the back(and front), numbered, and named(above is 'Marie').
Available now in 8 x 10 for $60.
We also have framed watercolor prints...
'Tiny Blue Flowers' is 6 x 6 for $30
or unframed watercolor prints in 8.5 x 11 for $20
We also have notecards...
The 'Faded Rose' notecards are printed from an original watercolor painting. A set of 6 for $10. (Also available in 'Tiny Blue Flowers')
We have placecards to go with the notecards in the 'faded rose'. These would make a lovely gift or could be used for a Mother's Day tea party or luncheon. A set of 8 for $3.
The 'Starfish' notecards are handstamped in grey(or pink) so no two are exactly alike. A set of 6 for $10. (Starfish tags are also available to go with the notecards.)
The Seahorse notecards are handstamped in grey(or pink), set of 6 for $10.
The Seahorse tags come in a set of 3 for $3 or 6 for $5. They would make a lovely gift along with the notecards.
We also have popular Sea Tags with handstamped words like sea, calm, tide, and bay. A set of 3 for $3.
Every item purchased at Seawashed is gift wrapped in natural paper with eco-cotton yarn and a seawashed tag.
So if you are looking for something original and one of a kind washed by the sea to give your Mother this year(or maybe yourself)shop at Seawashed.
Bringing the beauty and calm of the sea to your shores...for Mother's Day. ox
Sea tidings, Kerrie

I went to Blogger Buzz today and read that soon we will no longer have the old blogger interface as an option. We will all be forced to switch over to the new interface. Basically it says to try it now or Blogger will switch it for you and you will then only have that option. From what I understand we all have to learn the new interface. Ugh. I know a few of you have commented who have already been using the new and share that you like it. I did try it and it made me feel dizzy and lost. So, I went back. If you don't see me for a while it probably means that they have changed me to the new interface and I am struggling to figure it out.
Can someone please help!
I'm sending out a 'Mayday' for my friend Dore who is drifting out to sea with no way back. Blogger suddenly changed on her today and now she cannot figure out how to do a post or even return to how it used to be. My Blog hasn't changed on me yet, so I am wondering 'is this going to happen to me too?' Anyone and everyone who knows what to do PLEASE HELP...throw the life ring...please leave comments to help us. Thank you!!!

I got a package from Heaven's Walk in the mail. Look how coastal cute Laurie wrapped it.
And this is what was inside...
Seaside Bunting from her shop!
Laurie has a new shop space that you can read about on her blog and when I saw this bunting displayed in her Seaside Corner I contacted her right away to see if I could purchase it.
I actually bought it for our Sea Cottage on Wheels 'Nora Pearl'..or 'The Pearl' is what we like to call her. But for now it hangs in my studio. The aqua sea blue feels like a summer cottage to me. Oh, it makes me happy.
I've been picking roses and placing in mason jars all about sea cottage.
and I am painting...
painting roses... roses, roses,and roses.
This is painting #5 of The Rose Series~ 'Ada'. If you would like to keep up to date on my paintings visit my studio blog Seawashed.
