East Beach Road Trip

So much planning and packing went into today's trip to the beach...

Adirondack chair, check.  Beach towels, check.
iPad, check.  Diet Coke, check.
Camera, check.
Crab pot buoys, check.  Vintage croquet mallets, check.
Coastal artwork the size of surfboards, check.
(Say what?!)

Yepper, it was photo shoot day at lovely East Beach, the site of Coastal Living's Ultimate Beach House!
Though bright and hot as a summer day ever dared to be, my sister Debbie and I still had plenty of fun being 'on location.'  Sweat beads perched on our brows, as we casually styled my artwork and beachy accessories into playful vignettes.

Here's a sneak peek at one of my smaller beadboard designs, with the
beautiful Chesapeake Bay tucked in the background.
(This one simply begs for a chance to hang above french doors or an outdoor fireplace!)

I'm now in the process of editing dozens of photos for a Chateau Relaxo style guide and eCatalog.  Things are quickly ramping up and it's getting pretty exciting!

Remember, it's never too late to make YOUR dreams a reality.
It just takes some planning, a little resourcefulness and a bit of sweat on the brow.
Dare to live without those 'woulda, coulda, shoulda' regrets.
Give it a go.  In the end, it's truly worth it.

In fact, it looks like my designs and photographs will soon
be displayed for sale at one of Coastal Living's 'Love It' destinations!
(Ahem, not in some fancy-shmancy tea and crumpets art gallery... oh no, no, no!
It's a place that's *very* Chateau Relaxo.  More details ahead!)
