I am so happy today to share with you the release of my new nautical summer collection at AudOnes Prims! This is a very small release, available for one short week only before I put my shop on summer vacation. But I’m super excited to share it with you, and I hope that you will love it as much as I do!
Tomorrow is the first of June already, and like many of you, I’ve got summer on my mind. I am so ready to hit the beach, and soak up the sun. And that is what has inspired my latest collection. This mini release is filled with the cutest little sea creatures, made from the most adorable seaside fabric collection ever.
In honor of my reveal today, I decided to spruce up my front entryway in a beach theme to match. Great excuse for a little summer decorating to kick off the season, and a chance to get a peek at my new shop goodies, too.
As many of you already know, I have a small “thing” for transferware dishes, and love to collect them in all colors and patterns. I usually pair the blues with red for an Americana theme for summer, but this time I kept to a crisp blue and white palette for a more beach cottage kind of look, mixed in with lots of my favorite things.
As always, my decorating is an absolute mish-mash, but it’s this random assortment of life’s treasures that do bring the most joy. I’m really liking how the new prims fit right in. That whale is looking pretty happy to be here, don’t you think?
My new nautical collection consists of a couple of sea friends pillows and some cute critters, too. I’m sure you’ll be able to spot them all!
My new summer mini-release will be available in my shop at 10:00 a.m. EST this morning.
I do hope you enjoy!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hi sweet friends, happy Monday!
And a very happy Memorial Day to those in the States!
With just a few days left in May, it hit me that I had better hurry up and share this altered frame project that I made for Photo Play Paper. This is a mix of their adorable Bloom and Hoppy Easter collections, dressing up an old 5×7 desk frame for the spring season.
This pretty Bloom journaling card is my favorite from the collection, so wanted to use it for the focal point in this home decor. I matted the card on crisp white cardstock, and added a bit of machine stitched detailing around the edge to help it pop, before layering it onto a polka dotty background. I like to remove the glass from my frames so that I can build up the layers without worrying about space. Love the 3D effect you get with just a little bit of foam adhesive. Creates a bit of a shadowbox look, don’t you think?
The frame was originally plain brown wood, which didn’t really fit the design. So I added a quick whitewash of paint, and then adhered thin strips of patterned paper to the thicker edges. White pearl buttons jazz up the corners. All finished off with a simple twine bow.
I’m kicking off summer here in my shop on Wednesday, May 31st with a nautical-themed mini release. This release is small, but packed with bright summer vibes and the cutest little sea creatures ever! My shop will be open just one week, before it closes for summer vacation, so if you’re interested, be sure to shop early!

If you have signed up for Photo Play Paper’s mailing list, you may have seen a set of freebies they sent out recently with two different printables for their adorable French Flea Market collection. These printables are so perfect for spring and summer decor projects, and even if you don’t work much with digital designs, you will love how easy these are. All you need to do is download and print.
One of my favorite things about Photo Play printables is how beautifully they coordinate with their existing paper lines. So if you like the simple route, just print and slip the design directly into your photo frame. Or, if you prefer, you can add a few extra details, like I’ve done here.
My frame was larger than the 8×10 printable, so that gave me room to add a few extra paper layers. I used recycled cardboard in between to add dimension, and removed the glass from the frame to build up the layers.
Stickers from the collection. Buttons and a bit of twine. Paper photo corners on the outside of the frame, too. It’s a good day to have a good day! Hope you all have one, too!
