trash thrown overboard by boats and refuse left behind on beaches that gets washed out to sea. After tumbling around in the waves it drifts back onto shore as a more beautiful entity.

No matter what item you chose to decorate, one thing is certain... you will create an item worthy of a Waterside Cottage.(photo by Dan Mayers)I promise that I will get Mr. Linky up and running by next Wednesday so you can all participate. I apologize for not getting it together for this week, but I've been very busy signing and shipping copies of my book.
Please excuse my boasting but Waterside Cottages made Neilsen's Top 20 sellers at Independent Bookstores for July and hovered between #25 and #30 on Amazon's Bestselling Interior Design Books this week.
Dan says: "Everyone I know who has given a copy of Waterside Cottages as a host or hostess gift has gotten invited back to their friend's beach houses again. My friend Chuck even invited me back ... with the twins!"
