There are so many ways to enjoy the great outdoors! We asked our Teamies what they love to do outside, and what their shops offer so others can do the same. Here’s what they told us:
Nature is such a great source of inspiration for me. The starry night sky, the greenery of the forest and the salt of the sea all snap my creativity into production. I really love my visits to the sea. My kids can be as loud as they want with the ocean waves crashing around them. They can run and get dirty, bury themselves in the sand and then wash it all off in the water. They remind me that I once did that too and coax me out into the wild. We all feel the forces of nature that are greater than us, wind on our faces and salt on our tongues and powerful waves stinging our skin. There is no better place to make me feel so grateful to be alive. This inspirational quote is a reminder of that. And yes, those are my kids and their cousins, doing what kids do best, making their mark on the sandy beaches of the Oregon Coast.
We spent many vacations with our kids and dog at Southwick Beach on Lake Ontario. We stayed in Our Red Coleman Tent. When my Premie Daughter was born and the hospital told us to take a break for a weekend we stayed on an electric camp site so I could Pump my Milk to keep it going for my return. She is now 30 and in excellent health.
Well we used Sleeping Bags. I am selling a new but vintage Marlboro Sleeping Bag that my sister gave ma as a Gift. She was an Avid Smoker and collected Marlboro gifts.
This cheery sunhat with daisy trim reminds me of summer days at the beach.
My son and husband built a pond in our backyard 12 years ago.
I can see it out my kitchen window and enjoy watching how it changes through the seasons.
We have fish and “resident” frogs that are fun to watch.
The frogs are highly intelligent and are famous for posing in silly positions for my camera!
These miniature frogs remind me of the characters by our pond:
It’s time to get grilling! @DesignstheLimit we have a propane grill and charcoal smoker which we use year round, but now that the weather is getting warmer it is time to get outside and start grilling!
We have a number of different personalized barbecue sets in our shop featuring canvas or wood storage cases and offer personalization in a wide variety of fonts and styles. Make every gift giving opportunity into a gift giving experience and give a gift that can be useful and appreciated @DesignstheLimit.
I love nature, period. Whether it’s working in my garden, watching birds at the lake or hiking in the wilderness — I enjoy it and couldn’t live without it. And then in the evening we sit around the campfire (yes, I do love to camp and sleep in a tent) and write into my journal. This is when inspiration hits and I can write about nature, my thoughts, my feelings and adventures in a beautiful handmade journal.
I’m not a skier but love the outdoors and belong to a hiking group. We hike in the New Mexico desert every week.
Once Spring and Summer arrive I love to wander around my garden and enjoy all the flowers and insect life that suddenly emerge.
These charms, once made in jewellery, keychains or craft projects, can remind us of the garden during the Winter months.
We love to visit Florida and go down to the keys. It is always a peaceful, relaxing time. The ocean around us never fails to amaze us and provide us with spiritual and mindfulness times. To sit and watch the waves, hear its wonderful sounds and know that there is such beauty in the world is all I need.
The Great Outdoors calls for a pair of warm Men’s Wool Socks that fit in the boots for hiking, working outdoors or sitting in that deer stand waiting for that first deer to stroll by. If the sock should get damp it would still keep the foot warm and dry. What a wonderful way to be outside and yet still be warm! Women’s sizes are available too!

I am looking forward to spring flowers and getting outside to plant my garden. These blue flower earrings are great for this March weather…Blue like ice but with the promise of blooms to come.
Spring is a beautiful time to be outdoors and nothing is more fun with children than an old-fashioned Easter egg hunt. My little child-size tote is perfect for collecting those sweet Easter candies!
Gardening! In Texas wildflower season is here along the roadsides and prairies the wildflowers emerge with colorful heads to say hello to Texans! I love to share our colors with you! Color your garden this spring with some Texas native wildflowers!
The piece has earth toned beads to go with the amber brown beach glass. It is a boho like piece to call out your inner hippie.
Camping season is in full swing and what’s camping without a campfire?! This fire tool makes fire starting easy and fun! It works great for the fire pit, indoor fire place or your weber BBQ too! A unique gift idea for Father’s Day, Graduation, Birthdays, Christmas, etc.
