Welcome to Saltwater Sounds, a collection of ideas, tips, and inspiration. This is where I share everything happening in the world of Shiplap and Shells, what’s to come, and the inspiration I’ve found from other bloggers around the web.
This and That…
Hello March! I’ve been waiting for you!
The weather hasn’t gotten any warmer or dryer. But just the fact that February is over, I would do a little happy dance if I had a good knee!
Come on spring!
This picture was taken last year when a friend and I visited the town of Sumner, WA., for some vintage shopping and lunch.
I loved this view. This is the coolest nursery, with beautiful flowers and many unique vintage pieces. I miss shopping. I hope I’ll be able to start getting out more soon.
The knee update is good. I’m making a lot of progress. I have now graduated from the walker to a crutch or cane. I’m sleeping on my side again. Thank goodness!
It feels a little like groundhog day EVERY SINGLE DAY, but I know that things will continue to get better as long as I do my physical therapy like a rock star. I’m working hard so I can be a gardener again.

Around the Garden and Greenhouse
We bought some grow lights for my seedlings.
I’ve never used them in the greenhouse, and my flowers have always turned out beautifully.
But they are always slow to start, so I look forward to seeing how much of a difference the lights will make.
Yes, my greenhouse is a mess right now.
I took a lot of the humidity domes off after the seeds germinated.
The rest of my seeds will be sown next week, like zinnias and cosmos, so I’ll be using these lids and heat mats all over again.
It’s getting crowded in the greenhouse right now. Love it!
Around Our Cottage
I’ve got lots going on next week on the blog.
I’ll share my kitchen and laundry room spring home tour and some Easter ideas and inspiration with other bloggers.
I am SLOWLY adding spring home decor to my cozy cottage, and with a lot of luck, I should be done today. There’s nothing like waiting until the last minute!
