Hello everyone! Sorry I haven’t been around lately but I just have been enjoying being outside everyday,
after the winter we had I promised myself that I would enjoy spring/summer this year no matter what!
Plus watching the grandchildren and getting ready for my 4th trip to New York City with my best friend
Lynda,we leave on June 20th, can’t wait!
I’m still checking out your blogs though and loving them, so much inspiration out in the blog world that
I can’t help being inspired.
So here is my summer mantle for 2014.
I actually have two versions for you to look at, I like them both…don’t you hate when that
happens and you have to chose which one to go with?
I made this banner it’s burlap triangles that I bought at Walmart, just hot glued them on
the twine and then used stencils that I had (also from Walmart) and used a black sharpie
to fill the stencils in. Did not take long to make at all!
I needed a summer wreath and remembered this grapevine wreath in the basement, I had
some burlap ribbon and stuck a starfish in it and I was good to go. It’s nice just shopping from
your home sometimes.
The burlap ribbon is from Walmart too! You see one just opened a hop skip and a jump from
here so it’s so easy to jump in the car when you need something, but go in for one thing and
come out with five!
Here you can see the burlap bow I made.
This time I used seashells, I have a ton of them so it’s a little more neutral
Close up of the vases I filled with sea shells, the filler is of really teeny, tiny seashells.
Found the terra cotta pots at a yardsale last weekend.
Have a wonderful rest of the week and thank you to my newest followers, you make
Thanks also for stopping by and visiting my blog!
