Eclectic, quirky, and sometimes edgy…this is how things look from my front porch.

Refreshed Summer Mantel

Happy Independence Day!

Feeling in a summery mood, armed with a 40 percent off coupon from Michaels and some cool stuff from the attic which I hadn't had out in a few years, this is what I came up with.  The extra shells I needed were whatever $4.99 minus 40 percent is.  My friend, Suzanne, who is reading this already knows how much that is.  I don't and I don't care that I can't.
I was looking through this book for inspiration and realized that the actual book would look perfect right here.  My friend, Nancy, brought me some peonies in that mason jar.
The bird and the sailboat were on my porch one year.  I like them better inside.
