Summer's Last Look.....

The hot, hot summer weather here has finally gotten a little better and we can feel fall coming!  I can't wait for the leaves to start turning and the weather to get cool and crisp.  Since I've been a little lax on posting this summer cuz of our new arrival,  I thought I'd show you some of my favorite summer decor as I'm putting it away and pulling out Fall!!

 Twine balls, free with another purchase from 
a antique store in Watertown

Vintage brackets from our old store, (boy do I miss getting 1st pick 
of all the great stuff  we had there),  $8.00
Starfish, all for $3.00

Flakey cabinet in my favorite green , $5.00 from the Flea

Fish plates,  $ 3.99 and $ 2.99 from the Good Will

Love your summer photos! The shell box has a hard to find shell on it, the one with the spots. I have already forgotten the name of it though!
