Seaside Style Rooms and DebbieDoo's Copy Cat Party

 Happy Saturday  Sweet Cheeks of Blogland. :)

 Its another beautiful day in my neighborhood , which I dearly love BUT I seem to be dreaming of the all things SEA lately... Country Living:: all photos courtesy of them:: sent me an email and upon opening it, what to my thrilled eyes did appear??  Seaside Style rooms.. Yes indeedy do they did.
I have to share them with you as well as my thought about each photo.. WHY you ask- cause I'm just chatty that way  .. giggle
OH YEA.  when you get to the bottom of this post I hope you'll comment and in your comment I'd love YOUR GUESS as to which one of these I'll be doing for DebbieDoo's Copy Cat Party on May 30th.. that link to find out all about it is also at the bottom...

 so here we go.....   

 I think a bag like this would look great hanging from a hook on the side of my desk..  Pretty and extra storage too.... 

 I have 2 bookcases to paint and I plan to sit one on each side of the fireplace in my living room..  Painting the backs a similar color to this sample photo seems like a good idea.. Of course then I'd have to paint something else in the room that color too and maybe change out my sofa pillows and use a more summer tone rug under my huge ottoman..     Dont ya just love this thinking out loud..  :)

 I just happen to have a blank wall on one side of my patio..  Seeing this sample made me wonder why I've never thought of hanging stuff on it.    Makes sense right?  Looks good, I think I'll do it..

 I have white cabinets and dark counter tops.  If I added some of these elements I too could have a sorta seaside style kitchen for the summer...    Gonna give this idea some more thought..

 This is a mighty pretty set up but my eye mostly goes to that beautiful sailboat and those Lamps.. I seriously love those lamps ..   I wonder if I could make them,, hmmmm..  I do have shades that very shape and size .

I could make some seaside pillows like these IF I had a stencil ... so many idea, so little time. sigh

Ok I know this isnt a room but sheesh, $90.00 for this dress...  totally straight sewing- max 2 yards of fabric.. I'm thinkin I could easy make this in about an hour and for $8.00..Yes I see the cutie little rope belt tie thingie but I could use a  thick white shoe string lol.. It even has those closures on the ends..
 sometimes I THINK real good and other times, not so much....

 Lets see.. For the one below I'd have to hit 3 or 4 goodwill stores till I could find enough jugs to spray paint== kinda like Debbie sprayed her Mason Jars.. then stripe some and polka dot some. Run by hancock fabric and grab a few different blue and white fabrics.   and viola:)  easy peasy  and pretty cheap too.

I wow. How my double Pisces son would have loved this room when he lived at home.. I think I'll send him this photo as inspiration and then just pray his fiance doesnt call me screaming  LOL

 Some old books with Sea in the title..  Cheapo square mirror from somewhere. Cut out a large circle of foam core- glue to the mirror and hot glue shells..      Finding a metal sailboat might present a problem , but yea if it was too easy , it wouldnt be as much fun..  If I could fins a small sailboat, I could spray it with pewter spray paint.. Then it would looks like metal without me spending lots of money.....
 The sailboat search begins this afternoon....  keep your fingers crossed for me. Please..
 Now again,, ifin your willin'        Tell me in your comment  which of these samples you think I'll be copying..
   I'll list the names of all those who got it right in the actual post to Debbie's Party..

Hope to see ya'll there.. Its so much fun and dont worry about not doing an exact copy. We all wanna see your creative take on an image..   You'll be amazed at all there is to see posted by others..  Makes me smile just think in about it.  so click the link below and find out all about it.
