Pacific Greys

"Blessed are they who see beautiful things in humble places."
~Camille Pissarro 

We are painting our kitchen oak cabinets grey. 
{as well as the laundry room, bathrooms, and hallway} 
We chose a quiet grey like the one in the kitchen below
 with the gold pendant lights...

We are doing the work ourselves, so it's going to take a while.
We are hoping to be done by December.

The Pacific grey adds another layer of the ocean's tide to our white palette and blends well with the driftwood throughout.    

"So fine was the morning except for a streak of wind here and there that the sea and sky looked all one fabric, as if sails were struck high up in the sky, or the clouds had dropped down into the sea." 
~Virginia Woolf

Seawashed Sundays

"The beach is not only a sweep of sand, but shells of sea creatures, the sea glass, the seaweed, the incongruous objects washed up by the ocean." ~Henry Grunwald

I have been making Peace Beads { prayer beads} using raw wood beads and hand-painting them in layers of grey & white-wash.  Creating a patina as if tossed and turned by the waves of the ocean deep...washed by the sea.  Then I add seashells and driftwood found on the shores of the Sonoma Coast with a tattered Seawashed ribbon and sacred medal from Italy.  These are One Of A Kind and meant to hang indoors to bring peace to a corner of your home from the Pacific.  They are available in my Seawashed Shop.  

"If we have no peace, it is because we have forgotten that we belong to each other." ~ Mother Teresa 

A peace of the sea
for you.
