Week of 7/11/10 Featured Shop

This week I have chosen seashellsbyseashore.

Meet Lynette, owner of seashellsbyseashore:

I live on beautiful North Padre Island along the coast of Texas. I love spending countless hours on the beach year round- like the post man, you’ll find me out there in all kinds of elements- rain, wind, cold, and heat. I feel a little closer to heaven on the beach and near the sea.  The island life is therapeutic to my spirit, mind, and body. I was diagnosed last year with an autoimmune disease that has been reoccurring undiagnosed for over 10 years. I have turned my illness into my chance to expand my creative side, and create coastal artwork in honor of my love of the sea I hold so dearly. I also am a vintage girl at heart, as I once owned a second hand store for over 4 years, before my illness became too much to handle. I dream of once again owning a quaint, little shop by the sea where I can create, sell, and display my treasures- vintage and coastal inspired decor alike.

I try to use many upcycled and repurposed items in my coastal d├ęcor, and do my part to recycle and reuse.  I firmly believe that by using what the world has to offer already, we can make a difference in our children’s futures. I have 3 beautiful, talented children- and they share an eco friendly attitude in all walks of life. They have been leaders in their school and community, teaching others how to practice a spirit of discipleship.
