Beachy home

This past weekend my family and I went to our very good friends Marguerita and Sal's house for their son's 21st birthday.  They live steps away from the ocean and have the most comfortable home.  They love to take trips to the beachy towns along the coast and shop in the quaint little stores.  You can see all of their collectibles they have gathered along the way displayed throughout their house.

Here are some gorgeous artwork that were created by a sand artist from San Fransisco that hangs above their fireplace, I've never seen anything like that!.  The artist had told them that his artwork was made with sand collected from beaches all over the world, the sand is not colored.  I never realized that colors of the sand varies so much in different beaches, it is amazing!

Lets' take a closer look at the incredible detail...

One of the reasons Marguerita and Sal's home feels so comfortable and relaxed is because they display all of the things they love and have bought on their travels throughout their home.  Even when they go to a new  restaurant, Marguerita likes a little keepsake of just a match book or a menu to remind her of where they have been.  She loves to take pictures and has tons of photo albums that we take out every time they have a party and we stroll down memory lane, I call her "Fuji Mama".  Such fun!

Adorable little adirondack chair lamp.

I don't want to end this post without mentioning their grandson, our little cutie pie Joe and his adorable girl next door.  Sooooo sweet…

Hope you are having a wonderful week!  What do you think about the sand art, have you ever seen anything like that?
