A Little Summer Tour, and some new finds!!!!

I thought I would bring you along on a little tour of my home all dressed for Summer. It sure IS summer with temps in the mid 90's and "feel like" temps of over 100. The older I get the worse it gets to me. I used to be able to bake out in the sun but NO MORE!!! So let's come inside where it is nice and cool and look around! I added some of my shell collection to the stairs.

 In the dining room I set a table featuring shells on the runner, on the dishes and on the placemats and garland!

 Keeping it simple on my tiny server.
 I hadn't shown you, but we placed this picture here in the dining room. It had been in the foyer when we moved in then was replaced by the large mirror. I missed this picture so here it is. I think it looks beautiful in here.

 When you come in the front door and look to the left, this is what you see.
 On the credenza I added some more shells.

 This large jar is a new purchase. Actually I should call it a steal as I got it at Home Goods for a STEAL!!!!
 I fell in love with it the minute I saw it.
 Over by the chair I have more of my blue and white jars.
 The mantle features more shells tucked in with the jar and lantern and garland.

 These 2 light blue embroidered pillows are another recent purchase. Another steal! They are very well made and came in a pair for.....are you ready....$6.99 for the pair!!!!! My koi pillow is a very favorite. All 3 of these pillows were purchased at Burlington Coat Factory! They have beautiful linens for fabulous prices!

 On the round table there is a large, knobby starfish, and some other shells.
 A shell candle holder with a LED candle sit on one of my elephants from Vietnam.
 I LOOOOVE these elephants! I inherited them from my in-laws.
 This is the summer vignette on the coffee table.
 The view from the living room into the kitchen.
 And I will wind up with a picture of the coral pillows on the master room bed. We have a project going on in here that I hope to be able to share with you soon!!!!
Thanks so much for your visit!
