Life on the creative side

My Time By The Sea

path to the beach

While I am excited to soon be headed back to the ridge, Blue Antler Studio and  the creativity that will inevitably spring from the gatherings with my family and fellow creative kindred spirits; I have immensely enjoyed my time here at the sea’s edge. It has been very rewarding both in creativity and in simple joy.

I’ve painted…

I’ve been inspired by the endless moods of the Atlantic and its passionate dance with the shore.

And Hubby and I finally made time to tackle some of the projects we’ve wanted to complete. Beginning with the amazing Brooklyn Flea Market find that we purchased during our last trip to visit our daughter and her hubby in NYC. The moment I spotted the old shoe factory cart, with its warm, worn patina and small industrial wheels, in my mind’s eye it was already sitting in my small beach-side kitchen with beautiful bottles of wine resting on its racks; and now…

 that’s exactly where it resides.

I think all this creativity is worthy of a toast; umm? which bottle to choose?

Cheers to the sea, the ridge, creativity and simple joy!
