Simple Changes Make a Summer Mantle!

I have been "summarizing" the house with my large collection of shells! I have placed them all around the house and will share everything a little at a time. Let's start with the mantle. I made it very easy on myself by just replacing the birds and nests that were here for Spring, with some pretty shells. I have been collecting shells for ever! I love the light, bright look of the blues and whites with the shells! The green branches and the blue berry branches are so organic with the shells.

 I love this against the stone of the fireplace.
 This molded piece is a favorite.
 I have had this sea fan for years and attached my little sea horse and teeny star fish to it!
 I am enjoying the mantle and will keep it like this all through summer.
How are you "summarizing" your house this year? I hope you all had a wonderful, safe and fun holiday weekend. We sure did; we were out Fri. night, Sat. night and Sun. night! Fun times!!!
