Friday Finds: Let's go to the Seaside!

The sun has finally put his hat on, and when the weather's hot most of us start hankering for the beach. So this week's Friday Finds are all seaside and nautical themed to help you spruce up your summer with some beachy-beauties . . .
.:Jewellery:.
Above: Raw brass ship's wheel ring from Brilliance Found.
Above: Keep lookout as you sunbathe with this nautical telescope necklace from Fleur Avenue.
Above: Sometimes there's nothing better than traditional English seaside Fish and Chips. Wear your chip fork with pride thanks to this quirky necklace from Tatty Devine.
Above: You've heard of a ship in a bottle, now get a ship in a locket! This Ladyship Locket is from Marisolspoon.

Above: What better reason to wear one of these cool creations from The Vamoose?

Above: At least this seagull can't poo on your 99. From Tatty Devine.
.:Homeware:.
Above: I love this Fish & Chip shop screen print from MrPS. Also available as a tea towel!
Above: Lobster rug from Anthropologie. "Pinchy pinchy kiss kiss"
Above: Cute little crab door knob also from Anthropologie
Above: Ok, so Anthropologie win for nautical-themed homewear. Seahorse cushion. Pop to the site or in store for loads more gorgeous homewear.
.:Accessorise:.
Above: Ahoy there! Keep your pieces of eight (aka ice cream money!) in this pretty clip frame purse from Accessorize.
Above: Share the seaside love with your feet and work these ship-shape flip flops this summer. Accessorize.
Above: No trip to the beach would be complete without a bucket and spade right? No matter how old you are! So get this vintage tin bucket and spade from Dotcomgiftshop and you'll be crafting castles in no time. Try to resist smashing up those of little kids so that yours is the best on the beach... I know it's hard... but just let it go.
Above: Frame them or collage them, this pack of Britsh Seaside memorabilia will add a hint of old fashioned summer fun to your home / notebook / project. From Cloth Ears.
Above: Everyone loves a summer scarf. and I particularly love this swallow print one from Accessorize - so much I may go hunting for it tomorrow!
Above: Last but not least, the classic, unbeatable, naff 80s classic - The Jelly Shoe! We should accept none of these fashionable, overpriced jelly shoe immitators and stick to the good old, cheap as chips, bog standard ones we had as kids. I'm sure you can pick some up from any decent seaside gift shop (why not grab a Kiss Me Quick hat whilst you're there?? Go on.... ) Revisit your childhood and GIVE YOURSELF SOME HAPPY 80s FEET!
