I have been working on my Summer Mantel.
Even though Summer has been here for months.
The 5 year old and I have been busy shell collecting
So I knew I wanted to incorporate them.
The inspiration.....By the Seashore.
I pulled back out my trusty dictionary pages canvases
(these make such a difference on the white walls)
I gathered lanterns and glass jars
shells and books
and added a touch for the 4th.
Lanterns from Yankee Candle (years ago)
Glass Jars - Goodwill
By the Seashore sign - made by me
Framed Starfish with tissue paper background
(starfish from Mom/background tissue paper from Target dollar bins)
Pinwheels - from Michael's
Coffee Filter Wreath - made by me
Best thing is we can just keep adding shells as we find them.
I love how simple and neutral this turned out.
Hanging out with my Friends....
