Inspired By Sand and the Sea

Now that we are well into sharing Summer decor all over blog land, here is my Summer Mantle...Finally! I was very much inspired this year to decorate in blues, whites, and natural grey tones. For the blues, I used my THRIFTED SEAHORSE & my MADE OVER MIRROR!
For the whites I used my FREE FRAMES inspired by a Pottery Barn catalog & THE SALT DOUGH STARFISH. A few things I've had on hand for a long time are the Shells and the letter "J" for our last name. As for the grey, the driftwood will be in a post to come and the rocks, well it's helpful to have two boys that think rocks are a good thing to bring to mommy as a gift! I love my boys.
So there you have it! I'll be sharing some other ways that I decorate for Summer, but till then I hope you can find some inspiration in nature that will help you decorate your home.
I am so excited that the official start to Summer is almost here!
