First of all I would like to introduce you to Alison Smith, she owns a Holiday Cottage right here in Galloway. Although she is from Yorkshire she is Passionate about promoting the area where she lives, known as The Rhins of Galloway. So, if you fancy a Seaside break this one comes highly recommended.

Tracy Beattie makes delightful Seaside Gifts here is just one example
You can find Tracy here Crafty CoastThe item in the photo is made with a driftwood base, and the houses are made from little pieces of rounded brick which the sea has washed up, and the snowman and children are painted on sea pottery (I never use pebbles - only brick, sea pottery, roof slate, etc that the sea has worn and shaped & I use the shapes as I find them).
