Sara Tetley's Coastal-Inspired Watercolors

I just discovered the coastal-inspired artwork of Sara Tetley, and I think it's beautiful! So I'm adding this to the "Beautiful Life" party over at The Inspired Room today.

This one is called "Collections from the Sea:"


Thanks to Sara for letting me share some of her art with you. In an e-mail, she told me a little about herself: "I’m an architect who loves the coast and coastal interiors. I have a small place in Beaufort, SC. Each time I am in Beaufort or nearby Georgia, I paint watercolors of vintage coastal cottages."

Aren't they charming? To see more of her work, visit her Etsy shop!

Today it's another Hooked on Fridays blog party over at Hooked on Houses. That means we're all sharing something that makes us happy this week. Head over there to check out the entries from all the other bloggers who are participating, too!

  5. Lovely paintings :-) Watercolours just seem so appropriate for beach paintings, don't you think?? :-)

    We're featuring a wonderful artist on our blog for Hooked on Fridays too :-)

  18. Julia, I saw on your sidebar that you linked to Jane Coslick Cottages. You'd like mermaidcottages.com . We've rented houses from Diane that include Jane's renovated cottages. We ADORE Tybee Island and are headed there for 2 wks starting Monday. I also have a post on my blog about Tybee. I even hesitate to tell people about it because its such a perfect place!

    ps-I'm in Cincy, too!
