I have been slowly getting my summer decorations out this past month. Just a few things here and there...
Here is my summertime wreath. I wrapped ivy garland around a grapevine wreath, stuck in some sprigs of pink flowers, gold twirls, three large roses and a bow at the top. I didn't use any hot glue, the bow is tied on with embroidery floss. It's been several weeks and nothing has fallen off yet. ;0)
A bowl of seashells on the coffee table. I tucked in some small shells in the votive holders.
More shells on the mantle...
I made these napkin rings last year. I hot glued one or two shells to some ribbon and then tied them around each rolled up napkin.
Now on to the back patio....
A vintage hankie, bowl of lemons, and tiny fairy make up the table centerpiece. The book is called "My Mother's Garden" and is a wonderful collection of essays where the authors share their childhood gardening memories.
Finally, a wall planter and basket filled the pink impatiens. More seashells on the birdhouse and a sign that says, "Relax." Just the reminder I need for these summer months!
Thank you for looking at my summertime decorations!
It is the month of June,
The month of leaves and roses
When pleasant sights salute the eyes,
And pleasant scents the noses.
