Touches of White and Beach Style

Relax is what we did this past week-end at our cabin, so I snapped a few photos while we were there.  We still had 12" of snow on the ground outside our cabin, but I'm so anxious for summer, I just had to share these with you this week.  I decorate with whites and touches of aqua to give the beachy feel I love so much.
 
  Gorgous large coral was thrifted as was the cloche.
The plate and cloche were thrifted, and the shell was found on one of our family trips to Florida one year.
A wall at our cabin.  The window was $8 at an occsional style shop, printed sepia prints of our family in Mexico on one of our vacations in the Riviera Mayan area.  The Memories one the wall is a one time use sticker for walls.
More thrifted items.  The hand carved boat, the coral, the star fish as well as the buoy and net.
  All thrifted treasures with the exception of the anchor, which my husband created in a high school shop class years ago.
  This cabinet was purchased at the Long Lake original Junkmarket events one year.  I so enjoy this fun junky piece, which I use above the stool in the bathroom to display varying thrifted treasures in it.

Found starfish on the beach, and the cool ski boat toy was an occasional sale find.  We are avid water skiers and have a tournament ski boat, so kind of relative to our families lifestyle.
How cute is this phone?  I love to talk to friends, and found this cool vintage glass candy container at an a flea market.
  I paid .50 for the mermaid at a Flea Market and the other treasures were found on the beach.
This photo is also in the cabinet and is of my parents when they were first dating.

Thanks for taking a peak at my mostly White Wednesday which I'm linking up with Faded Charm.
