ocean house Christmas
The grand Ocean House hotel in Watch Hill Rhode Island is all decked out.
Who knows, maybe we'll drive down. Would love to see it in person!


paula deen rental cottage
Paula Deen's Rental Cottage on Tybee Island.
Sweet idea to make a pillow look like a present!


gingerbread lighthouses
Gingerbread lighthouses featured in Coastal Living Magazine.
Which one is your favorite? 2010 or 2011?


coastal christmas office cubicle
Carol of Beautiful Details dressed up her Office Cubicle!
Will she win the contest? We'll see.


Jim Shore nautical santa
Lots of folks love Jim Shore figurines! Do you?
This nautical Santa comes from Back Porch Musings.



A really sweet Christmas song!


tropical christmas
So, are you Dreaming of a White Christmas or Tropical Christmas?


sailboat with christmas lights
I know some of you will watch Christmas boat parades!
I spotted this cutie on Nantucket Water Front News.


Thanks to the Lighthouse Guy who left a comment on Facebook, the Christmas Lighthouse on the cover of Coastal Living Magazine 1997 (which I included here: Great Christmas Gift Ideas for Coastal Style Living) has been identified.
It's Trinidad Memorial Lighthouse on CA's Redwood Coast.


Airstream Trailer living
Airstream Trailer Living..., with Holiday lights.


Brrrrr. The cutest snowman ever! This guy is made with seaglass and a battery operated light! Submitted to the Completely Coastal Facebook Page by Leanne.


unique christmas tree
Another awesome and unique Christmas tree! Shared by Aimee on my Facebook Page.
Her fiance made it. He found the perfect driftwood logs from a stash on the beach.
And it comes apart for easy storing.

And there are two more very unique Christmas trees!
You might recall the oar tree, see Coastal Mix -Unique Christmas Decorations and more.
Then there is the seaglass tree, hung heavy with chunks of sea glass and beneath, beach rocks take the place of presents! Featured on Pictures of Decorated Christmas Trees.

And come back Monday for a Christmas tour of my home!

I hope, you are all enjoying the Holiday season!
Happy Weekend, Everyone!

Love all the pictures with Christmas lights creatively used. I'm also partial to Paula Deen's Tybee Island Cottage, since that's not too too far from my neck of the woods.

Love both the Gingerbread Lighthouses, but my favorite is the one from 2011 showing the beach and the ocean.

You know I'm dreaming of a Tropical Christmas and since they're predicting a high of 84°F on Saturday and 81°F on Christmas Day, it looks like I'll be spending it at the beach!

Oh, and a Lighted Boat Parade is a tradition here at The Hut, along with a visit to the Florida Botanical Gardens to see the holiday lights.

Hugs

HI Maya
Love all your picks this week. Those ginger bread light houses are amazing.

Just gorgeous inspiration here. You can't beat Christmas with a coastal touch.

That tropical Christmas does look mightly tempting, it does look so pretty all lit up. And I really love that lit up sailboat too. Very cool! ~Lili
