Anyone that knows me even just a little bit knows how much I love summer. Hands down my favorite time of year. I love to find ways to bring a touch of summer inside, too,
because it makes me HAPPY!
We love the beach, and our home definitely reflects that.
I looked high and low for a mirror to go over the mantel in the living room, and had just about given up. Then I found this frame on sale at Hobby Lobby, and I said hmmmm..... Just as I thought, my hubby was able to put a piece of mirror glass in it easy peasy. He also made the sail boat when he was a boy, and I've always loved it.
Nothing says summer time quite like pretty flowers! And daisies are such fun, happy flowers. They look right at home in some plain milk bottles. (Thank you once again, Hobby Lobby. These bottles are a steal at $1.99 each.)
Colorful throw pillows are another great way to add a splash of summer to your decor.
When we were at the beach this summer, I asked my little guys to find as many white seashells as they could find. They did a great job, and we brought home piles of them. So now, we have this pretty reminder of our trip on display in the living room.
One of the things I adore about this old house is the fireplace in the bedroom. Right now, it's filled with all the things that make me happy, hydrangeas, old blue jars, vintage cameras, beach photos, and a cute little pink bicycle (because I just could NOT pass it up...)
The old cameras are special to me, not only because I love dabbling in photography, but also because they belonged to my Papaw. It's fun to have special things out where you can actually SEE them and enjoy the memories.
I certainly hope you all are having a fun summer. We are enjoying ours to the FULLEST!
