Nautical Decor: My Summer Decorating Jam

You might have noticed in yesterday’s post that I love playing with nautical decor in summer.

Decorating with Spring Flowers …the not-so-real ones.

Happy Sunday, my lovelies.  It’s been awhile!  It’s been a busy Winter. And speaking of Winter, I’m so over it. Can I get a woot woot?  I need Spring flowers around here. Desperately.

By now, you know I love decorating my fireplace mantel for different seasons and holidays.  This year’s been a little different: it actually hasn’t changed all that much!  I’m not gonna lie: I’ve enjoyed the ease and simplicity of keeping things the same for awhile.  But we brought home some pretty beach rocks recently, so I created a beach-y summer… Read More
