Oh, I do like to be beside the seaside!

Hello! My name is Becka, and I will also be guest posting here while the lovely Tina is taking her much deserved break! I am really excited to be a part of such a beautiful and inspiring blog, and to meet all you, dear readers!

A little about me...I am originally from New Zealand, and after a stint in London, I am now living in Vancouver, B.C. with my husband, two cats and lots of art supplies. I split my time between working as a doula and running a little store online with my husband called Bliss In A Teacup. I write a blog of the same name, where I chat about yummy baked goods, thrifting finds, yarn, feminism and the like!

Right, the seaside. It is rather hot here in the Pacific North West at the moment, and I find myself dreaming daily of a trip to the seaside to cool off. Here are some of my favourite shots from a new favourite Flickr pool, Vintage Seaside to swoon over until my next day at the beach!

I love that even in era's where photography was often a traditionally somber affair, there is something about candid seaside snaps that have an inherent exuberance and excitement. So lovely!
