Oh I do like to be beside the seaside

I recently came across a lovely shop on folksy called Handmade from the Heart which sells gorgeous shabby chic handcrafted items made from wood. I particularly liked their beach themed items - boats and beach huts and they have inspired me to do a treasury of fab beach/seaside related items available on folksy. We have a holiday house near the sea in New Quay, West Wales which we rent out and all of these things would look fabulous in our house! If anyone ever wants to rent a very child friendly holiday house near a beautiful blue flag beach for a holiday then check out the link on the left hand side of my blog. We'll give a 10% discount to anyone booking through this blog!!

Here are my top pick of beach related gorgeousness on Folksy...
