Susan Sells Sea Shells
You have to hand it to Southern Californians, they definately have a lot of luck in the good weather department. As Susan Sells Sea Shells, I'm in New England slowly sloshing slush, secretly swearing, shoveling snow. I visited SoCal this past summer, and quickly realized that it's a whole different country over there. They have this carefree style that my fast-paced, screaming for a cab friends in the Northeast just can't touch. While our SoCal friends are planting and surfing and simply moving on with life in January, the rest of us are stressing out, eating out, hibernating, and on our knees praying for Spring (which comes around mid June in the Boston area.) Well, today I got my touch of sunshine and sandy beaches. A very sweet woman contacted me asking if I'd consider writing about her friend's website. Flattered, I replied, "Of course!" in one window, anxiously loading her page, in the other. Ummm. Shells. Beaches. Pretty white sand. My thoughts now switched to, "OMG! How will I incorporate shells into my blog in the dead of winter?!?". Then, realizing that my blog is actually online, meaning it's potentially viewed by people everywhere, it may actually be spring or summer according to some of my readers. If you're one of them, this post is for you. Check out Susan Sells Sea Shells, for shell inspired designs by Susan, a talented Manhattan Beach artist. She creates beautiful works of art using natural elements from the sea; sand dollars, shells, coral, sea glass... simply lovely. Envision her items in a lovely Shabby Chic cottage or in an upscale Cape Cod summer home. Purchasing something handmade by an artist who truly takes pride in her work, like Susan, is certainly admirable and worth supporting.
