Ok, so I’m totally bummed.
I fell off the blog post carousel.
And I was doing so well too.
But I’m jumping back on !
And wanted to share some of my summer touches around here.
My green and white hydrangeas in the garden are doing great so I’ve been sprinkling some in the kitchen in my glass bottle collection.
The green ones are more cone shaped while the white ones are the more traditional large spheres. I love the combination of the two of them together.
The typewriter I scored here?
She made her debut and came out to play.
She sits on my mother’s secretary desk just where I wanted her.
She’s all dressed up with a seasonal tongue twister that compliments the surrounding decor.
The kids love trying to say it & it’s actually not easy even when you’re reading it.
I’m excited to dress her up throughout the seasons.
I have more seashells around the living room.
I have my large conch and a small glass bowl with smaller shells on the coffee table.
I actually have a few glass bowls and jars filled.
And some coral in silver plate pieces.
My mantle actually features all my coral.
The majority of my sea life pieces are from the time we lived in the Bahamas when I was 5 or 6 years old. They were all harvested by my family when regulations were much more lenient than they are today. The ocean was our back yard so we were in it almost every day.
Now to add some patriotic touches for the upcoming 4th of July holiday…
