Summertime means beach time and if you can’t be at the beach, why not bring the beach into your home? I did a little decorating with shells to give my living room and dining room a touch of summer.
The mantel always gives me a hard time. After countless trips up and down the steps for accessories, this is the end result.
I also did a vignette for the dining room. We enter our home through this room so I actually see and enjoy this spot several times a day.
I found the sea biscuit and shell to the right of it when Mama and I cleaned out her basement. The rest of the shells and star fish were in my stash.
It’s fun to decorate with the seasons. Yesterday Phyllis Hoffman’s Celebrate Fall arrived in the mail. I’m hiding it for at least a month because I’m in full summer mode and not quite ready for fall. Besides, it’s been in the mid-90’s here and who wants to think about fall when it’s that stinking hot?
