Monthly Team Contest for August!

Another huge CONGRATULATIONS to Lois from Bluebell Design for winning July's Team Contest!
We're ready to announce Lois' very unique Theme for August's Contest!
This month's theme comes in the form of a poem!!! {Can you smell that salty sea air????}
drumroll please . . . . . .

{this beautiful Seashell Votive Candle Set from beach grass cottage is perfect inspiration for the theme!}

Here is the Theme for the August Team Contest:

Sea Shell, Sea Shell,
Sing me a song, O Please!
A song of ships, and sailor men,
And parrots, and tropical trees,

Of islands lost in the Spanish Main
Which no man ever may find again,
Of fishes and corals under the waves,
And seahorses stabled in great green caves.
Sea Shell, Sea Shell,
Sing of the things you know so well.
{Sea Shell by Amy Lowell}

So, gather your sea-treasures and get ready to create something gorgeous {as I know you all will}! When you've finished listing your item, come on back to this post and leave a link to your item so we can start posting those pictures!
