Winter Blues

I am enjoying winter, getting all snugly in my
little house, lighting candles, reading novels
and making hot soups.
But ~ I am also longing for sunny beach days again
(not that I live anywhere near a beach).
S0 I decided to show you a peek of my office which is 
decorated in a blue & yellow beach theme.  I love my office ~ 
it's a small room with my desk looking out onto the back yard,
a big comfy couch, and a TV.  I could live in here and when 
I'm not in my bedroom ~ I'm in my office.
I found these buoys at Goodwill last week for $1 each
and just had to bring them home for the office.

I have a long shelf with pegs that runs the length of
the room.  It comes in handy for hanging things and
displaying items on the shelf.

I found this colorful beach bag at Barnes and Noble
last summer for only $10 and knew it was 
destined to hang on an empty office peg.

It's packed with a beach towel and sun screen
and is ready to go.  All I need is a beach.
My cheery colorful buoys and beach bag
make me smile and remind me that summer will
come again even though it's snowy and frigid outside.

I hope you've enjoyed this little peek and the bright 
colors have brought a little ray of sunshine into your 
winter as they have mine.

More office peeks to come later.

That was like a little shot of sunshine. We go to the beach regularly but we have to bundle up against the very cold wind.

I love it that you have a beachy office with all the trappings of the beach. Your office is the perfect place for a 'Where's The Beach' sign! Very fun post and nice mosaic for Monday!

Need a beach? I hear there is plenty of room at Alum Creek this time of year....

I think Beach decor is my very favorite. I'm thinking about re-doing my kitchen in beachy colors.
