The Golden Ticket....

Out at our tiny coastal village of Pacific Beach, there is a new beach town growing up from the cliffs just south of us..Seabrook is moving and shaking up the area like I never thought I would see. Amazing gigantic classic homes along with sweet little cottages and darling cabins are the call of the day. It has been so fun to watch this whole little town grow up from the red clay and old growth that use to inhabit the hillside there. My Father and I, along with my infant baby boy Finn in tow, went out to the first meeting that Casey and his family had at the fire station in Pacific Beach. He wanted to share his vision of what he imagined could take place here. HERE in Grays Harbor County~~This made my creative juices overflow with excitement..It has been absolutely amazing to see his vision come to fruition. 

Lately, though there has been a new buzz in the salty coastal air out on the mighty Pacific Ocean..Ultimate Beach House? For Coastal Living Magazine??
I have been a contributor to reviewing their magazines for a while..Its been one of my favorite magazines for, well, since it started..along with Pacific Beach itself, it seems to be a perfect storm of awesomeness for me.
Then...THEN...I  SAID THENNNNN throw in one Gorgeous, talented, toe-headed decorator extraordinaire from Santa Monica California, Mr Tim Clarke, of Tower 20 fame to do the decorating inside...someone get the smelling salts, Im going down...

Yes,  he even came into moms shop.. GRAND HERON and purchased a few select pieces from the shop...
YES, for the UBH..and again, yes..I was NOT there..Can you believe it?? Grand Heron furnished a small piece of the Ultimate Beach House...for Coastal Living Magazine..

Although my friend Stephen had sent us invitations, this makes the invitation the icing on the cake for me..Tim sent Mom an  invite himself..and yes, he says "bring your daughters too.."
this will be fun..and yes, I will bring my camera, and YES I will report back..Because Im nice like that..
