Back to School — Nautical Ruler

The message on this ruler is "Measure It."

ChatterboxBeach offers a variety of back-to-school items. One of our favorite, is an acrylic ruler that has the message “Measure It” written in nautical flags. The ruler is a great addition to any desk and makes a great gift for a favorite teacher or student. It would be a welcome addition to a college freshman care package.

Wearing a Summer Sunset

SisterM has been busy making hand-knit cotton necklaces in various pleasing colors. One of my favorites is what she calls “Summer Sunset,” featuring shades of pink, purple, blue, teal, orange and green. The lightweight jewelry is a perfect accessory for day or night and is embellished with a blend of similarly colored glass beads. The necklace is perfect for an evening out, yet casual enough for everyday, and is a great gift for women or teens. The necklace includes a lobster claw clasp and has a length of about 21 inches. SisterM likes the contrast of the glass beads sparkling against the softness of the hand-knit cotton necklace.

Whimsical Fish

Sometimes one whimsical addition to the room can make a big impact. When summertime arrives, I put a colorful fish pillow where no one expects to see it — on my bookshelf. It reminds me to enjoy my favorite season. SisterB keeps two fish pillows on her bed year-round. I also like to put a couple of fish pillows on the outdoor hammock. They are stylish and comfortable to rest on. But I always bring them inside at the threat of wet weather and at night. They are not made to withstand harsh conditions. Spot clean when needed.

Baseball covered sticky notes are practical and attractive.


Baseball and beach lovers will like these sticky notes. The covers are made with fabric, giving them a great look for display on office desks.

Sticky notes fit nicely in Easter baskets.

 They also are flat and sturdy for carrying in a purse or laptop computer bag. They make great gifts and fit nicely in Easter baskets. Browse our Etsy website for more gift ideas at http://www.etsy.com/shop/chatterboxbeach.

Beach is the theme of this set of sticky notes.
