Summer Mantel

I wanted to do something a little different
this year for the summer mantel.

 Instead of the usual "cottage garden chic",
I thought I would go the beach!

 I dug out some shells and this cool picture that
belonged to my dad.

This was my inspiration, blue and white, the ocean...

 Filled a glass vase with shells gathered when we lived
near the ocean in Washington,

 Stacked some sand dollars in a bell jar.

 Moved some shutters in front of the fireplace opening.

I even changed out the wing chairs for the navy striped ones.

Bring on the Summer!
