If I Had A Beach House

 If I had a beach house

.....just a little tiny one....two bedrooms.....one for us and one for you....gray shuttered windows, vintage sea paintings, an ocean side porch, some weathered old rocking chairs, 


 I could watch the magic of the summer sun playing on the waves, hear the laughter of children building homes of sand, feel the ocean spray, ...........

 I'd paint it in colors with beautiful and peaceful and soothing names
surfside,  pool house, canopy stripe, restless seas, sea salt,  shoreline mist, crushed coral, or mermaid, 
cool reflection, blue lake, shaded cove, splash, sea grass, aqua,  east coast, smooth sailing, ocean dream, sand ............

with a touch of

flamingo pink and bird's nest buff and saltwater taffy


On This First Hot Day of Summer

 Until then I invite you to join me by the pool, 
sit in the ol' fish chair, have a cool drink

 Dip your pink tootsies in the water..........feel the cool

Under a dome of glass, rest the spoils of the last vacation.....listen....can you hear the ocean calling ....


Thank you for visiting today and I thank you for following.  If you don't, I would love to have you.  ♥

It's always a pleasure to join these wonderful parties.....full of inspiration and a charming hostess.  I know they will love it if you give them a visit.

Grabbing my walker, hobbling on over...might I trouble you for a lemonade and ginger cookies??

Lori said...

Oh Lynn, how I would pack my bags now to spend some blisful time poolside! This coming month would have been my sons 29th birthday, plans would be coming how we all would fly to AZ next year to surprise him for his 30th in 2013! Right now amidst the sadness of his loss I'll gladly settle for poolside since no ocean side is available! Thanks for such a lovely post!! Lori

It all sounds wonderful, Lynn! There's nothing like an ocean breeze. On a hot muggy day like this, I'd take your pool in a second! Lucky girl!

Marigolds are peeking their heads out!! :)

Oh looking at your pool pictures makes me miss our pool that we had when we lived in California. I loved it. Always a great way to cool off on a hot day. That fish chair is o cute!

A beach house . . . that WOULD be lovely and I love your descriptive colors you'd choose for it :) Mine would be on St. Simons Island, GA!

Oh how I miss my pool. I would love a little old fashioned cottage by the shore. They are getting harder to find as people are tearing them down to build big new beach homes.

Lori @ Katies Rose Cottage Designs said...

Ohhhh how I would love love a beach cottage! You have me dreaming for sure :)

Beverly said...

I feel transported. I would love to sit with you and wiggle my toes in the pool.♥

Oh, the many times I have spoken those very words...if I had a beach house. :) Well, I live in Florida so I guess I can consider it one large beach house. hmmmm...not quite the same.
I see your pink toes and I smile because I posted similarly earlier this week (Better by the Sea), pink toes too. :)

The pool sounds heavenly just about now.

Happy PINKS!
