I would LOVE to live the eco-coastal lifestyle but alas i am here in Michigan for the time being. Although my DECOR looks like i am living on the coast! :0)

Everything Coastal said...

Thanks Jill! Michigan is sort of coastal... I took my kids to Lake Huron a long time ago, and was amazed at the color of the water. Incredible!

Laura said...

I can only be eco-coastal in my mind, as there aren't many chances here in Missouri. But your site sure does help!

Everything Coastal said...

Thanks Laura!

Wes said...

I am so glad I found your page through Nicholas Landon Jewelry! I have had SO much fun browsing through everything! We live in Fort Lauderdale and try to spend every free moment on the beach. My husband was an Ocean Lifeguard - so over the years we have collected so many things from the beach - from sea glass, washed up sea fans, shells, sea beans - you name it. My entire home is decorated with as much "coastal" as I can get. Makes us feel like we are on perpetual vacation! Those pillows, I believe, would bring a little "vacation" feel to any home - coastal or not!

Everything Coastal said...

Hi Wes! You truly live in a magical place - I LOVE Florida beaches, have carted home more than one suitcase full of shells. It's a little embarrassing!

robin said...

I now follow this blog on my google reader. :)

harmony art said...

I live near the Pacific Ocean and walk to it about 2x a week (2.3 miles all downhill). I collect plastic bits that are washing up from the pacific gyre. I think Jolee's work is lovely! I really appreciate that she uses organic fabrics. (full disclosure - I am the producer of her organic aqua twill)

Rose West said...

Beautiful pillows! I love living coastal here in Hawaii! Life is simple - and we appreciate the small things - sunsets on the sea, sharing with neighbors and friends, supporting local farmers, get-togethers on the beach.

Seashells and Southern Belles said...

I am a follower of this blog and I love these pillows! I don't live on the coast, I am two hours away, but I'm an eco friendly here in the "city" by being a big recycler!

coastal femme said...

I'm a new follower and live on the southwest coast of Florida. Our family really tries to live an ecofriendly life style. We eat no red meat and no endangered fish. Most of our diet consists of grains and vegetables. We have two fuel efficient cars,recycle,get almost of our mail electronically and live in a cottage that's adequate size-but not large by any means. I just love the pillows;they're gorgeous!

Maya @ Completely Coastal said...

The crab is my favorite, have seen it in magazine shots too!! I recycle..., eat no animals... (exception..., once in a while a grilled fish). And we traded our SUV into for a small Sedan -you won't believe how much money on gas we save too!

SeaShellsbySeaShore said...

We are serious trash collectors on our frequent trips to the beach! Even for short trips we always bring 2 leaf style trash bags. Before we have any fun- we fill those bags up. We often visit areas of the beach that are quite remote. Heavy equipment never reaches those areas and we do our part by picking up as much as we can.
I love the blog and this fabulous giveaway. The pillows are super awesome!

I'm following your blog and your pillows are so lovely! I live an eco-coastal life in my mind as we are about 100 miles from our beaches, but we also take most of our vacations on the islands, really enjoy checking different ones out. Since our trip to St. Thomas and St. John, I have been in thrall with iguanas, love them and would love to see a pillow with them on it. Thank you :)

Hi Caron!
So fun to get your
beach house newsletter
in my e-mail this

of an eco-coastal lifestyle,
some day! In the

in Long Beach next
week and that will be
heavenly. These are
some really gorgeous
pillows. Hope you
are well!
xx Suzanne

ArtSea Chic said...

Thanks so much for this post Caron, now following via Google reader! The pillows are my new favorite find :) I have my own blog and newly started online business for recycled handmade chic nautical products and environmental issues, www.artseachic.blogspot.com. That's just one of the ways I try to stay eco-friendly. Reusable grocery bag collecting, transforming wine bottles, old wood frames, etc into artsy creations, growing herbs, making sure to turn off lights, driving a fuel-efficient car, and volunteering for beach clean-ups are some of my favs!

I can't believe I almost missed this, thank you for the reminder. I love these pillows, especially the crab. :) I love living on Lake Michigan and finding ways to recycle things into my "cottage" home.

Seaside Style said...

Caon, thanks for the reminder. I am already a follower. I love the crab! I have so many crab things in my coastal home of SC it would fit perfect! So many natural elements in my home. I think my fave are my back splash tiles in my kitchen made from seashells.

I am a subscriber also, but wanted to comment how much I love this blog and all its eco friendly beach inspired coastal products... Thos 2 Wasabi Green chocolate and aqua pillows are gorgeous, and I especially also love the linen color and white sea urchin and sand dollar pillows!
Even when we may not purchase that day, the relationship we build with other coastal love people through these sites and blogs is priceless! So inspiring! The sea is such a gift!

Jane said...

So glad I found you through Sally Lee and Simple Daisy! I love "everything" coastal...and this blog, too! LOVE the pillows!!! Being a coastal gal and a beachcomber, I gather the trash left behind by those unthinking sunbathers.It's interesting how the "dog" beach is cleaner than the "people" beach...I also plan my trips to the store to keep from making too many back and forth trips. And I LOVE painting on reclaimed wood...these "canvases" make the most interesting backgrounds for my paintings.

Great pillows! What a lovely giveaway. Thanks for sharing at Beach Cottage Good Life Wednesdays

Barb K. said...

Hi: Good giveaway. Like the lovely pillows. The ocean is my favorite place to relax and get away from it all. My life style along the coast is to take time for my self and a time to think about really nothing at all. Good blog. Follower Google Friends Connect.

Nantucket Daffodil said...

Just followed...nice blog! Live a very coastal life here in southeastern Mass.Nice pillows.

~Tammy~ said...

We use to live in Hawaii, and it's sad when you are away from the tourist areas how much trash is on the beaches! When we would go, we would collect as much as we could and dispose it. Now we live in Virginia, so we miss the coastal lifestyle.

I follow everything coastal! :-)

We live near the beach and have made it a habit to "comb" the beach for litter! :)

These pillows are beautiful and I love decorating with beautiful ocean inspired decor in our home in Florida! I'm a new follower and I try to use elements from nature and handmade items by local artists in my home! Thanks! ♥

Anita @ GoingALittleCoastal said...

Beautiful pillows. Love the crab and the coral ones. We are on the Emerald Coast and we pick up trash when we are on the boat.

mean green mom said...

I'm a new follower and would love to win :D I grew up on the coast playing on the beach everyday, but now we live a few hours away so I miss it a lot. Still I think I incorporate eco coastal living with being a green in many different ways and also just living a mellow laid back life.
Thanks

Lovely pillows and how wonderful to support Sea Turtle Conservation! I lived aboard a sailing vessel exploring the ocean and taught ocean appreciation and conservation to many young students over the years. I would really enjoy a beautiful sea pillow to relax upon!

MagicMarkingsArt said...

Caron, I found my way here through Completely Coastal - and am so glad I did. We live on the coast, my husband and son surf, and we are a huge beach loving family. Therefore, are doing our best to help conserve our coastal environment. Thanks so much for your posts and for the introduction to Jolee!

I'm a new blog follower. I used to live near the coast and I like to remember that by decorating our guest bedroom in a coastal style. I must confess that when I miss the ocean and the beach and the salty sea breeze I sometimes nap or read in there. asthenight at gmail dot com

new gfc follower & we moved to the beach about 6 months ago, loving it!!

Anonymous said...

WHAT GREAT PILLOWS! ... love all of them but especially sea turtle, waves, and CRAB(Im a cancerian as well as lover of all things ocean).
Palm Beach County Florida has one of the greatest coastlines in the USA...and Im working hard to keep it that way!
Next pillow: I suggest the hypnotic Manta...

Beth Cunningham said...

I found your Facebook page through a FB friend. I love the sea and the islands and try to incorporate that into my life as much as possible. Being near the water is when I can really breathe. It's where I find my peace.

Hey Doll! Sorry I have not been by in a while, work work work! These pillows are just gorgeous and the fact that they are eco-friendly, even better! I live my eco-friendly coasta life in Monterey California and make a huge effort to eat local. thanks for the opportunity

I follow via GFC and live near the beach, so we incorporate coastal shells and things into our lifestyle all the time.
