Summer Vignette
 This is a true, Make The Best Of What's Around blog post! 
Finally I'm back with something to share with you.  Forgive me for my absence, but we've just been really busy. 
I say this is a true, Make The Best Of What's Around post because everything I used for this Summer-y Vignette I had on hand!  I will link everything back to it's original post for you so you can see where each individual item came from. 
 I love how this vignette looks.  It's very bright, yet very mellow in honor of the beach.  I don't know what says Summer more than the beach?!
We'll start with the Seahorse.  He was a thrift store find from last year.  It's one of my absolute favorite thrift store finds ever.  You can see the original post {HERE}
 It doesn't get any easier than decorating with sand and shells.  Even if you don't have access to a beach where you live, you can find them at any craft store.  Check out the original post {HERE} and find out where I purchased them.  I live in land-locked Idaho, and even I can pull off coastal decor!
 These I shared with you not too long ago!  Bright, hand made lobster buoys.  We were able to make a few more this last weekend.  Again, they were free because we had all the wood and paint on hand.  {HERE} is the original post on how to create East Coast inspired buoys.
 This was another one of my favorite projects, and one of my most viewed blog projects.  Salt Dough Starfish.  They are super easy, frugal and fun to make.  You can view the original post {HERE}
Last but, not least...DIY Blue Jars.  Most everyone probably knows how to make these.  If not you can read the tutorial {HERE}. 
Knowing that I didn't have to spend any money to decorate my home for the Summer is a great feeling.  I did however, spend a few dollars on some outdoor projects that I'll hopefully be finishing up this weekend and sharing with you next week.  They are both very frugal, fun and I can't wait to share them with you. 
Tomorrow I will share with you a fun box full of beach inspired decor.  It's very similar and goes well with this vignette.  Stay tuned!
