It's vacation time, so our fireplace mantel has gone to the beach.
Seashells line the beach. In the distance we can see a boat sailing in the ocean. The seashell plates were a sale purchase at Kohl years ago. (Home Studio Shoreline Collection)
This is the only shell that didn't come from a beach. It was my mother's. The Lord's Prayer is printed on the shell
I found this stained glass sailboat at a flea market about 20 years ago.
Sand and seashells in a glass vase support a few stems of faux Forsythia.
A beach table and chair are ready for you to enjoy a cold drink.
A sand castle resides among the seashells.
With a candle inside, the castle has light in the windows.
There is even a note in a bottle on our mantel beach
The beach chair plate is made by I. Godinger & Co.
Someone brought an elegant picnic basket to the beach.
Could you hear the waves crashing on the shore? Could you smell the salt in the air? Could you feel the sand between your toes? Thank you for walking along the beach with me.
