The school year is winding down and parking spots along the boardwalk are filling up! Whether it's a fresh water lake, salty sands, or the backyard pool; these Etsy up-cycle artists have the perfect summer accessory for sun-kissed days!

Custom messages surrounded with soft sea glass add instant whimsy to any summer décor.  Contact ScrabbledMessages to custom order a cottage sentiment of your own!
Carry the beach wherever you go with a wristwatch up-cycled to display wee sea life treasures. Pick up this cutie and browse more sea-inspired gems at SeaShellsCreations.
Lighten the load by gathering all those swim necessities in one bag.  This oh-so-beach burlap bag from BackAlleyChic is stylish, environmentally conscious, and a do-gooder.  A portion of the proceeds goes to the ALS foundation to help find a cure for Lou Gehrig's Disease.
