A Wreck Found At The Beach & A Visit To Style For Living

Today I'm at Style For Living, participating in Marianne's series, the ABC's of Me.
{Another Seattle Blogger I hope to met soon.}
Make sure to hop on over to visit her blog!

Then, while at the beach, I was intrigued with a small boat that had washed up to shore. In all the years visiting this beach, I've never seen anything quite like it.

Loved the colors and worn paint.

And though it wouldn't get you far in terms of transportation...

...I thought it made for an interesting setting for a photo.

Until a wave reached it, moving it towards the surf. {Taking me by surprise.}

Okay, perhaps not the best idea. 
{Good thing the kids weren't around...}


  1. I'll be heading over to Style for Living to check out your ABCs. What a great beach find. So glad you didn't float away!

  2. It's 90+ degrees here & you're in long sleeves. Unbelievable!

    You're pictures of the boat are pretty enough to frame. Don't you wish you knew the story of the boat & how it got there?

  3. It's Oregon! And we certainly haven't had much of a summer in terms of heat, I actually need a bit more to soak up, to get me through the upcoming long gray winter! Janell

  4. My mind was racing with ideas of whose boat it was and where they are now....?! I love Marianne!!!

  5. What a surprising find! The boat really is a really great prop for photography sessions! I am heading to Style For Living to check out your ABCs.

    Have a great week!

    By the way, I just host a new giveaway so stop by and enter for a chance to win a piece of fabulous jewelry of your choice!


  6. Can you take the boat home? You look cute on it. The wood be great for so many projects.

  7. Thanks again for being my guest today! Glad to see you got to the beach to enjoy our few days of summer! Wish the sunshine would come back!

  8. Wow, Janell. Just catching up on old posts. Really interesting about that Pottery Barn room. Talk about using your room for inspiration...even the colors were the same! All I could say when I saw it was "WOW!"

    I know in the creative world we are ALWAYS inspired by the things that we see. And when we publish our own creations online, we realize that people may want to replicate them, but it really surprised me how direct they were in their "interpretation".

    That said, I do think you should be flattered. I mean, Max's room is FABULOUS. I've loved it since I first saw it. I've said it before and I'll say it again...You are one TALENTED lady!


  9. Gorgeous pictures...so enjoyed your interview...could really relate to so many things on your list!

  10. I would have wanted to drag that boat home. What great colors it has. It does make for some gorgeous shots!

  11. Great photos of you on the beach. That boat is an amazing photo prop! I'm popping over to Style for Living now.

  12. How lovely! I wonder what the history behind the boat is.

  13. You're pretty cute on that boat! Good work, model!

  14. I really enjoyed your interview...and that first pic of the boat looks frameable to me!


  15. Janell - Seriously, I cannot believe you didn't figure out a way to tote that thing home. Ha! I would have! Much to my sweet husband's demise!

  16. I want to take that boat home and hang it upside down from the ceiling! LOVE!
