Beach House Chandeliers & A Cozy White Family Room

Hi -
I've missed you - we've been so jam packed the last few weeks I got totally caught up in life and chaos - I was going to say a welcome change from my normal routine, but lately like for  months now, nothing seems normal.

For weeks we had family in town for a wedding so we got to hang out and catch up with aunts uncles and cousins that we never get to see, and it was great. It was really hot, so we spent as much time at the beach as possible actually a lot of time walking back and forth and eating. As the lovely aunties get older they just love to talk about everyone - they've all been married to Mr Beachys family for over 50 years and boy do they have the scoop.

Then, I was contacted by a blogger who found my blog and wanted to buy some chandeliers for her cafes up the coast - variations of this one, so I marathon beaded and crystaled and got the order out and she was happy so we were thrilled.  This design is our signature style and my favorite so there's always at least one available -This ones available for sale now -

So I spent some time trying to figure out how to make it easier to buy on the blog, got the 'buy it now' and 'paypal' banners just have to get them in the right place. In the meantime if you would like to buy something or inquire about something you see on my blog you can email me here.

This is a great Vintage Porch Chandelier with a French Crown at the top - For Sale

Then this computer started to act up - so it was off to the Apple store to spend a few hours with a genius at the bar - 3 times and it's still not right.  I lost my email accounts, bookmarks, photos, records, data, and lots of other stuff that I don't even know about yet.  Don't even get me started.  You have no idea, well there's probably alot of you that have been in this mess.  Would love to buy a new laptop, but instead I bought more ram and a stick.  MmmHmm Who's stupid?  It's a good $$$ decision - Jen's Beach Wedding is just around the corner approaching quickly. Very quickly.

Thought I'd invite you into the Family Room to hang with us...I'll whip up some margaritas with chips and salsa -

Wintertime we light a fire every single night.  I collect vintage beach art and I was so happy to find the painting on the mantle last month at the Rose Bowl Flea Market.  The hydrangeas are one of my fave lights and the lantern on the brick - that's going to be a Chandelier soon.


These Bookcases hold nearly everything - magazines, bills, stationary, tapes, and now wedding magazines, photos, ideas, stuff, stuff, and more stuff.  Bottom left - all our old albums from the 60's & 70's - just can't part with them.



Found this Rose piece garage saling today - I'm not sure what it's for but I think it would be great to sit on the Fireplace or anywhere - it's For Sale 

We've been invited out to dinner tonite with friends so I gotta get goin - 

Blogging to join the party with Cindy at My Romantic Home
I hope

Enjoy Sunday -
