{inspiration: always the ocean}

. . . few things are more romantic than the ocean -- the lull of crashing waves, the promise of sandy toes and saltwater kisses -- and so, fell in love with the underwater enchantment of glittering and iridescent mother-of-pearl & mirrors, and the shapes of scallop shells & starfish in this charming beach house powder room . . .

". . . if your love were a grain of sand, mine would be a universe of beaches."
~from The Princess Bride

I was following Valentine's Day posts to get some ideas and stumbled upon a past birthday post where I saw that you celebrated your birthday recently. Happy belated Birthday or Joyeux Anniversaire! I hope it was full of warmth, beauty, romance, ivory and gold, and a plentiful amount of universal beaches ^_^!!!
