A Summer Barscape

We just got home from OBX yesterday, so today, after unpacking, I decided to continue "summarizing" the house! I thought I would change the vignette on the bar from Spring to Summer! It all started with this runner that I found last year and haven't used yet. I loved it because of the colors, not all pastels but more MY colors:)
 I am still corralling things in this basket that I love. I got this starfish MANY years ago.
 I put some of my tiny shells at the base of this hurricane, and included this teeny seahorse.
 Matching shells to the runner.

 I broke this shell several years ago but just couldn't part with it. Hope to find a replacement one day....



 I found this one in a shop last year. It is man made and not real, I do believe.
 I added the large sea fan on a stand.
 The starfish votive holders and several years old too.
 Placed the hurricane on a stand to raise it up so we could see it better. I love the added texture the rattan base provides.

 My son, Brian brought this plant to the beach for us to enjoy and said I could keep it. It is perfect!!!!





 
 
Thanks for stopping by. I missed you all last week!!! XO, Pinky

Summer on the Coffee Table

Continuing around the living room, I added some Summer to the coffee table. I started the vignette with this new blue and white vase that I found at Home Goods the other day. For a long time they haven't carried any blue and white but now they are stocking it again and I couldn't be happier! I can't seem to resist it! I also saw a very large bowl that I almost bought, but resisted. I love the design on this new jar!
 I have had this shell pillar holder for several years. I added some blue sea glass and an LED candle. I turned it on for you but it is hard to see.

 I added some other shells to the tray and beside the tray.

 I have a large collection of shells, I have been collecting them for over 30 years. Always have wished we lived near water somewhere but that is not to be:)

 I added some star fish to the orchid.
 I looked at some beautiful ivy plants today but am waiting til after vacation to get some more.
 I LOVE the combination of the blue and whites and the rust colors.
 The coral embroidered pillows are on the sofa.

 I moved this jar over to on the elephant and added a small starfish. Things keep moving around, as Shirley would say, the "d├ęcor shuffle":):) Except that she does the "furniture shuffle":):)

 I am looking for a summery tablecloth for the table in the corner to lighten it up for summer.
 I added some rusty flowers to the handled pot. They are not as orange as they are showing here.

 Thanks for your visit. I hope you are all having a wonderful summer!!!

Summerizing the Mantle and Hearth

Is that a word? LOL! Here is what the mantle has looked like all Spring, but now summer WEATHER has arrived so I decided to go for it!!!
 I put together 2 arrangements in my pale green bottle/vases. I always like to use Blue and white for Summer!
 Of course I had to add some shells too.
 There will be a lot of shells placed through out the house soon, I have a large collection!
 This is another favorite container, it looks like it is made from a shell, perfect!
 I also did the hearth.
 I like these arrangements to be wispy and airy.
 I even changed out the picture over the mantle. Found this at Kirklands last year.
 This lighter and brighter look is perfect for summer.




 I changed the hearth a LITTLE by adding the hydrangea in the blue and white planter and the shells.
