Rain, Rain Go Away

CS_2014-0909-0By Cindy Clay Srader
How many times have you wanted to sit on your covered deck but the blowing rain kept you inside. Maybe the West sun was so strong, that side of your deck was unbearable in the afternoon. Or maybe your neighbors are just too close. This idea of putting louvered shutters on the end of your deck would solve all of those problems. This solution would give you the open view when you wanted it but also allow you to close them when you wanted. There are places in Galveston that have these types of louvers in Aluminum and come in any color you may want. CS_2014-0909-1There are also several people here on the Peninsula that make stationary slats that would give you privacy while also keeping the rain out. These slats are made of treated wood and can be painted any color you may want! The shutters shown here have locking mechanisms that if installed here should be with all stainless. I love these! Now I just have to convince my husband this is necessary!



HOW TO Create a beach display:

CS_2014-0909-2I am always looking for ways that I can create tabletop beach displays. In this picture you can see how easy it can be! If you collect bottles or jars in a color that will go in your room, it is very simple to create your own display! You can use any type of seashells or coral as shown here. Just use good old E6000 and glue them to the top of the jars. If you jars are clear, fill them with colored sea glass you have collected. You can use a raffia or twine wrap at the top and finish off by tying the ends. If you have a bottle with a narrow neck you can use a cork that will fit into the bottle and glue a shall on top of the cork. As always I appreciate all of you and hope you enjoy!
