What The Shell? Let’s Go Beachy

what the shell?  let's go beachyWhat the shell?  Let’s go beachy with our décor!  Of course, we love working with our cottage owners to create that special cottage charm and you can do it, too.  Who says your home has to be right at the waters edge for you to let all shell break loose?  You might be land locked, but you go right ahead and create your own island paradise in your own home, too.  Here are a few inspirations that’ll have you going coastal in no time.

Mermaid Mona visits several beaches up and down the east coast every summer and she has a great eye for just the right items to compliment her coastal style.  She regularly shares her decorating projects and her photographs of her cottage style and here’s a beautiful tablescape she recently created.

Tybee’s Happy Movies By The Sea

tybee's happy movies by the seaIt’s Summer and that means it’s time for Tybee’s happy movies by the sea!  Every third Saturday evening during the summer months, Tybeetians and beach goers plop down for a picnic and a movie at Memorial Park.  These family friendly movies will be projected on the side of the Tybee Gym compliments of the City of Tybee Island’s Development Authority and Tybee’s Main Street Program and Partners.  On Saturday, August 15, we’ll be watching Earth To Echo!

Tuck, Munch and Alex are a trio of inseparable friends whose lives are about to change. Their neighborhood is being destroyed by a highway construction project that is forcing their families to move away. But just two days before they must part ways, the boys begin receiving a strange series of signals on their phones. Convinced something bigger is going on, they team up with another school friend, Emma, and set out to look for the source of their phone signals. What they discover is something beyond their wildest imaginations: a small alien who has become stranded on Earth. In need of their help, the four friends come together to protect the alien and help him find his way home. This journey, full of wonder and adventure, is their story, and their secret.
