Welcome to Saltwater Sounds, a collection of ideas, tips, and inspiration. This is where I share all that’s been happening in the world of Shiplap and Shells, what’s to come and the inspiration I have found from other bloggers around the web.
This and That…
Happy Sunday my friend.
The rain is back and I’ll be spending the day in the greenhouse today. My helpers, Jax, Ollie, and Lucy, are looking forward to being back in the greenhouse again.
I spent the week finalizing my garden plan for 2022, making a list of the indoor to-dos I want to tackle before spring, and looking for some healthy recipes I want to try.
I hope my friends on the east coast are staying warm and safe this weekend.

Boat Renovation Update
The quartz was installed this week in our boat galley and the counters are looking amazing!
Next up… tile work, sink, and appliances put in. A sea rail will also be added around the edges of the counters.
Garden Inspiration for the Week
The picture above was taken in mid-July of last year and I’m not sure if I’ve ever shared it. The reason why I love this capture is because of the simplicity of this garden view.
For this week’s inspirational garden post, I picked How my Pacific Northwest Garden Grew Through the Summer which was posted in September and takes you through the entire summer season and how the garden grew in 3 months.
If you do go and check out this post, let me know in the comments what your favorite picture was.
What’s Happening at Shiplap and Shells…
Here are last week’s blog posts and all that’s been happening at Shiplap and Shells.
Every month, Cindy from County Road 407 selects an inspiration photo for us to recreate for a Pinterest Challenge. Each participant puts their own spin on the photo, according to each of our individual and unique styles of decorating. This month was a take on Valentine’s Day cloches.
On this blog post, I shared 9 of my favorite garden trends for 2022 including dahlias and cut flower gardens.
