Because I love a good forewarning, there's some major storm clouds outside so my pictures are DARK dark. Sorry ahead of time, I promise I don't really live in a dark dungeon.. Maybe the sun will come out..tomorrow..tomorrow. ;)
While browsing my latest obsession I came across this photo.
Tis gorgeous isn't it?
It just reminds me of that hot sticky summer where you can smell the salt in the air and you complain about how hot it is but in the winter this is what you crave Yup, that summer.
It's my favorite kind.
So I wanted my summer mantel to somewhat show that. The tall grass, perfect blue, sand and drift wood. And what do you do at the beach? Read. At least I do, so it felt right to throw some books in the mix. Do what feels right people! :)
See that awesome frame there? Yep, made it about 15 minutes before I wrote this post. Tomorrow I'll share the easiest tutorial EVER on it.
I shopped the house for all the items here except the faux grass which I picked up at Hob Lob for 2.50 a stem (50% off, woohoo!)
