Touches of Summer Around the House

It’s been such a gloomy couple of days… It’s been raining non-stop. Blah! The good news is that it’s given me a chance to get the house cleaned up a bit. I thought I’d share some of my “summer decorations.” I displayed my Byers Choice Carolers in a lantern this year. At the bottom, I poured some sand and scattered some shells. At night, I turn on the battery operated candle.

On the other side of the pass-thru, I have an apothecary jar filled with shells, another full of beach glass, and some candles.

My large apothecary jar is full of shells and rope, again this year.  I wanted to get some beachy pillows, but it didn’t happen. Maybe next year.

I wish I had a big, bright house to decorate, but I don’t.  We all have to learn to be happy with what we have. I’m learning.

Have a wonderful week!
