Hawaii has always been a place I have wanted to go on vacation. We were supposed to go for our 10th anniversary, but it didn't happen. Now with the prospect of my brother in law taking a job there, well.... things might be looking a little more optomistic .I just came  came across these images of Hawaii,that I had to share..The lush greenery, Surfing, { not that I can } the white sandy beaches, the beautiful blue water, ahhhh... honestly what is there not to like??

High Fashion In The Lowcountry

I love the bold and vivid colors of these beach fashions that are featured in Charleston Style and Design  Some of the fashions definitely remind me of yesteryear glam with a modern feel.  These gorgeous photographs were taken on Dewees Island in Charleston, SC.

                                                        I love these pants... very 70's

Quote of the Day


Have a great Tuesday!


A Lobster House

This quintessential New England beach house on the New Hampshire coast was designed by  Boston based designer Jim Gauthier, where whimsical Lobster's and Gauthier's signature color Orange take center stage. Gauthier and his entire family took part in the transformation of this elegant yet comfortable family friendly 6 bedroom beach house retreat that was purchased in 2000. The transformation took 7 years, and end result is fabulous.Nautical style is present in almost every room, making this house, a house any coastal lover would swoon  over, and only  45 steps from the house until your toes touch the sand...not too shabby.

                              I am crushing over this gigantic Lobster over the fireplace!

                                      These pulleys add great architectural interest .
