Antiqued Books for Beach Weddings

Since my heart belongs to the sea (as does every mermaids!) I find nothing more beautiful, than a special event by the sea. The ocean, sand, and every treasure that comes from the deep blue sea are all a part of my soul. Therefore, I LOVE to create items that celebrate the sea. I’m so thrilled that my creations have often been a part of someones’ seaside wedding or special event. 


Many people have used my Ship’s Log, Beach Lover’s Journal and The Sea Antiqued Journals as their wedding Guest Book. I’ve decided to start photographing them and sharing them with you!


This is the smaller size Antiqued Journal (4-1/2"x6")
that was used as a guest book for a Pirate Themed
summer wedding ♥︎ I love just that theme!

There are several different papers I like to use for the covers of my Ship’s Log, The Sea, Mermaid, and Beach Lover’s Antiqued Journals, and there are just too many of them to show all of them in my ETSY Shoppe listings, so please take a look at the other samples of the lovely papers I have that you can to choose from.
