Sittin' By The Dock of the Bay.....

Well, wishin' I was anyway...and that inspired me to start a wreath. It's still in the "makin' " stages because I have to keep stopping to attend to other things but I hope to have it finished by Friday. I will add starfish and shells and other good things to it and that will take me some time to lay out.

Originally I intended to use the darker seahorse, but then I tried the lighter one and now I'm thinkin'.....hmmmmmm, maybe the lighter one.

What do ya'll think? I would appreicate your feedback, tell me, dark or light seahorse? When finished I will post a photo here.

My wish for you: A wonderful lazy day, dipping your feet in some nice cool water having time to daydream....and dreams that come true.

It is so good to have you back. I have missed you so much. I just love beachy cottage decor. Your wreath is going to be amazing.

This provokes my love of the sea, wading through shallow water and searching for that special shell.

Thank you for sharing

Hi Francie,

I like the white seahorse because it contrast very nicely with the wreath colour which is beige.

I can't wait to see the finished project!

Have a great week!

HI Francie,
Nice to see you again. Your wreath looks stunning already. I like the white seahorse because it picks up some of the white shells. either way, you won't go wrong. It's really lovely.

Francie, so glad you're back! The wreath will be gorgeous no matter what you decide but my vote is for the lighter seahorse. It pulls the outter edge into the circle better.

Both seahorses are fabulous. My question is where on Earth did you get them? They are wonderful!

Hi Francie -- cute cute cute wreath!!! I love wreaths that are inspired by the local of the maker. This one is stunning. And such fun that you're back. I like the light colored sea horse -- he contrasts with the jute color of the wreath.

Hope you're having a spectacular week.
