I am a wife, a mother, an auntie and a friend. I love thrifting, garage sales, re-purposing, creating, painting, anything that makes our little rental home more welcoming, comfortable and cozy. I have discovered the "art" of amateur photography & I love the idea of capturing the beauty in the ordinary everyday things that surround us. Blogging is a wonderful way to make new friends and share with people who have the same interests. My personal taste in decorating leans towards "casual cottage/coastal decor". I now have a small shop on etsy, called "SandySeashore" where you'll find some of my vintage finds, my photography and some handmade things. I hope you take the time to check it out! Thanks for droppin' in!

Richmond Maritime Festival - Steveston

There was a Maritime Festival in Steveston this weekend. It was a beautiful Sunday afternoon, so Hubby and I decided to go take a look...

I took some pictures I wanted to share with you, I hope you enjoy them.

 Do you see the HUGE paper Crane?

 Little paper boats made by children

 Even Molly enjoyed herself!

Of course where there are ships there are Pirates! AAARGH!!!!!
 "Are ye takin' a picture of me, wench?"

 This one is my favorite!

 I hope you enjoyed your little stroll around the Maritime Festival!
