Beach Gypsy Dreams Unveiling!

Man when something hits my heart I'm a goner! It's like zoweeee this is the direction and away we go!

Aka: the ideal for Beach Gypsy Dreams came on Tuesday when a Sales Rep mentioned she could get my goodies in a few choice Hotel Gift Shops on the Beach!
Within a week I've got over a dozen new designs that resonate with the vibe! And it all came so easily!
And yes I'm one of those peeps who kept it quiet until I researched available .coms, blogs, etc.
I first thought the name Beach Gypsy but well there's a website, twitter acct., Etsy, etc. already in play.
Then while staying a few nites in hotel getaway in Orlando, and when i finally got to relaxing the last part came to me DrEaMs! Cause we can't always "be" a Beach Gypsy but we can have our Dreams of Being one!

Then it clicked... .com, blogger, etsy, gmail, etc.... All available feels meant to be..
So the journey begins with one tiny Splash!!
Check out some of the new designs and let your inner Beach Gy…

Beach Gypsy Dreams

It's a name for my new line of Designs, but maybe more?

What does Beach Gypsy Dreams Mean?

Here's a abbreviated take on each word via the dictionary.

beach[ beech ]
1. an expanse of sand or pebbles along a shore.
2. the part of the shore of an ocean, sea, large river, lake, etc., washed by the tide or waves.

Gyp·sy (jpsy)
1. One inclined to a unconventional way of life.

1. Daydreams; a reverie.
2. Aspirations that are longed for.

So maybe beach gypsy dreams touches u, or just the idea of being free at the beach, no cares, writing memoirs and insights, like Anne Morrow Lindbergh writing Gift from the Sea in Sanibel Island.. BTW One of my most favorite books!
Or just no responsibility for the day, no children, no hubby, just you and the Ocean dancing and playing on the Beach!

Throwing that one around not sure how it's gonna jell with Sunshine Bliss.
I'm toying with the ideal of opening back up our Holistic Spa and we would call it: Sunshine Bliss Studio!

Coastal Living "Happiest Seaside Towns"

Ok I Subscribe & LuV Coastal Living Magazine and not just because it usually features Florida beaches, but it's gorgeous to peruse thru on a afternoon off with lemonade & my feet up!

I am going to start sharing some of their nuggets from the Magazine! Hope u likey!!

And I'm a bit bewildered that only two towns in Florida made it!
I've lived in Naples, Fl and it's nice and Jupiter, Fl is nice but their both Affluent areas! and we also lived 2 miles from Laguna Beach! It's again very nice but uber Affluent!

I would Add:
-Treasure Island, Fl
-Satellite Beach, Fl
-Flagler Beach, Fl

But you decide!

Here's the Press Release they sent me:


“In honor of our 15th anniversary, we are excited to share a list of the ‘Happiest Seaside Towns’ in America,” said Editor-in-Chief Antonia van derMeer. “By ranking the top 15 happiest seaside communities, we draw attention to places where life is good and the beach is close by. T…
