Let's Go Down the Ocean......



Those of you from Baltimore will recognize the phrase in the title of this post as the 'Bal'more' version of going to the beach every summer! I grew up in Baltimore and we didn't go to the beach...we went 'down the ocean'....hard to capture the accent in print but if you've heard it before, you know how it sounds! I loved going to the beach as a kid...the sand, the sunburns, the surf....great memories!

The pics are from two swaps. The first is the 'By the Seaside' atc swap on PaperTraders  and the second is the 'Treasures of the Sea' Altered Matchbox swap hosted by VintageDragonfly . I always look forward to the  Summer swaps because the seaside themes are always so much fun! xoxo
