Life's a Beach Party

 We have had a few boxes of beautiful 4 x 4 inch Spanish tile, left over from our home renovation years ago, gathering dust in the attic. Since I knew we wouldn't need to save all of them I decided to recycle and re-decorate a few with whimsical beach themed designs. The designs are hand drawn and painted with non-toxic, lead-free glazes then fired in my kiln.  The coaster sets are perfect for indoor or outdoor parties, to give as gifts or for adding a pop of beachy freshness to a kitchen or bath.  Please click on the images for more information or to place an order.

Beach Party tiles include a palm tree, surfboard, sand bucket and seahorse.  They were painted with apple green, turquoise, yellow and blue glazes.
Surf bus coasters were painted with teal, apple green, pink turquoise, black and white glaze colors.
Surf Jeep coasters painted with red, teal, blue and yellow glaze colors.
I love the classic design of a Woodie! These were painted with apple green, turquoise, red, teal and brown glazes.
Vintage campers are so cute - especially in the coastal colors of turquoise, pink, blue and apple green.

Won't you join me in welcoming the warmer days and longer nights of summer - let's throw a beach party!  Feel free to add a link to your favorite beach and surf themed party items.

  1. The coasters are so fun! The bus ones remind me of the VW bus my parents had when I was really young! This was a such a great use of those leftover tiles. Thank you for the birthday wishes. ~Val
