Olivia loves the beach & swimming!

If you have a dog and love all that is nautical, then you will love todays post.  Without going overboard, Fido can look his/her best in a new collar with matching leash.  There are so many nautical themed collars to fit any size dog.  I have found quite a few that are perfect for my pooch Olivia.  

I hope you find the perfect nautical collar for your pooch!

Classic leather strap!

Treasure Hunting: Seaside Inspired

A couple of weeks ago, one of my favorite bloggers, Wood & Rope Nautical Homeware, turned me onto an AMAZING online retailer that specializes in home decor inspired by the sea.

Seaside Inspired was founded in 2006 and delivers amazing products in an online boutique. Products from Seaside Inspired have been featured in Coastal Living Magazine, Cottage Style, Redbook, and Rachel Ray.

The collection from Seaside Inspired truly provides chic decor for the coastal home. They carry everything from seashells, to candles and lighting, to tableware, to pillows, and so much more. I’ve spent quite a bit of time on the website working on a “wish list” of treasures, and wanted to share them with you all! Be sure to check out Seaside Inspired for beautiful, unique coastal decorative items. Click each photo to buy!

Weekend Recap: Tall Ships Extravaganza

It was a very busy Memorial Day Weekend here on the North Fork! Celebrations were in full swing, especially in Greenport, NY where the spectacular Tall Ships were docked for the long weekend. Visitors came by boat, car, bike and ferry to this wonderful maritime village to celebrate with their family & friends.

Greenport was the second port to host the Tall Ships fleet, as they travel around the country (and Canada) for the Tall Ships Challenge Race Series. The Tall Ships are traditionally rigged sailing vessels crewed by youths ages 13 to 25. Visitors can board the Tall Ships, meet the crews, and learn about the vessels they’re on. I am lucky to have viewed the Tall Ships on Thursday before it became really crowded in the village, and again today by sea!

Aside from the excitement of the Tall Ships, the weekend weather was beautiful! I enjoyed some outside barbecues, making DIY flag arrangements, fireworks, and even squeezed in some fishing. I hope you all had a wonderful holiday weekend! Here are some pics from my weekends adventures! Enjoy!

Ship Lovers Paradise

Ahoy! For all those who love all things nautical, do I have a treat for you! Today I’d like to share with you a little store called Triangle Sea Sales located in the historic maritime town of Greenport, NY. The store is owned and operated by a very warm and friendly couple, and is by the far the most unique shopping experience you will ever come across.

The store’s slogan is, “You Have Never Seen a Store Like This!” and it really is true. It is impeccably organized and features a wide array of nautical treasures, including old rope, fishing equipment, marine equipment, wooden signs and plaques, ships wheels, brass clocks and barometers, old books and charts, wooden figureheads, authentic lobster traps, buoys, wooden elocks, glass floats, decorative rope fenders, and much, much more.

A portion of the store is outside, and is called “Shipwreck Alley.” The alley is filled with old marine parts. Need a part for your boat and can’t find it anywhere else? Well this is the place to go. There are oars, anchors, portholes, propellers, lamps, wood blocks, tongs, traps, rakes…you name it, they’ve got it.

The store is well known by interior designers, photographers, and TV/Movie producers as a great place to find authentic nautical accoutrements.

If you ever have the chance to visit Greenport, you must stop by Triangle Sea Sales, and if not, be sure to check out the website. It’s a great place to go treasure hunt, and find the perfect authentic, nautical accent for your home.
