Beach Cottage Inspired! ~By the Sea Dreams~


By the sea, by the sea! Oh I so enjoyed to design and paint these beautiful large oyster shells the other day. I love beach cottage decor and when mixed with pink roses, it's all dreamy.

While treasure shopping last month, I came across these wonderful Oyster shells that I shared in my trip post yesterday. Measuring 4" wide by 6" long. I decided to paint 2 with seaside scenes and roses on the backside, and one, with roses inside and rose bud on the front. These are in my shoppe now with Free Shipping.



Oh how I wish to drift away in this sail boat and return to this rose cottage by the sea. Where roses are planted and the water so blue. Where days are lazy and the nights full of stars that twinkle off the water.



I will dream as I create, with pink roses that grow outside my window.


Also the wonderful Cindy Adkins has an on line magazine and she so kindly featured me last Saturday. Please stop by and view her great blog magazine and visit me and other artists she has featured by clicking on her name.


It's always special to have you visit.
Have a wonderful Summer's day full of Seaside Dreams!

Hi Celestina, Your sea shells are so pretty and I enjoyed your day trip. It is so hot I have to be very careful and not stay out to long in it. It just really japs you. I always enjoy looking at your paintings. It is one thing that I can't do. Have a great weekend and try to stay cool. Take care Your Missouri Friend.

Dearest Celestina Marie,

First off, congratulations for being featured in Cindy's online magazine! Did go there first.
Second I went to the Etsy shop but the rose cottage shell was gone... Would you have one more like that? Wish it could be combined with the dragonfly Friend sign! Let me know please.

Lots of love,

Mariette

Sigh...these are gorgeous, Celestina Marie. So dreamy. Your description reminds me of all the thoughts I had when I was designing my page header...a cottage by the sea. Just need the roses. ;) How I'd love these for my beach room too. I must visit your Etsy.

Miss Beazy Lee reminds me of our Honey. We miss the old girl but enjoyed 11 happy years with her. You've inspired me to add a picture of her to my page. Thank you.

I look forward to visiting.
Enjoy your weekend.
XOXO

Hi Celeste,
I loved looking at your sea paintings. We just got back from Hilton Head and love ocean scenes.
We celebrated #41 while there! Time is flying!
It looks like you two had a wonderful trip and got some great finds!
I hope you had a relaxing time away! Take every opportunity you get to be together!
Hugs!

Patti said...

Oh, those are beautiful!!! I love beach scenes. I love roses. And you paint both beautifully.

One of these days, when money isn't so tight and I've got some spare dollars, I'll be by the store and grab me up one or two of your beautiful creations.

Wishing you a lovely weekend.

Love,
Patti

Celestina,
I LOVE LOVE your new Header and side bar. It's beautiful. Pink and black has always been a favorite of mine. The painted oyster shells with the pink roses are so pretty. Nel and Jess are at the ocean today taking in the sun. You have such a talent, my friend.
