It's summer and that means beach time! Since I'm not in California anymore with access to some of the most beautiful beaches anywhere, I have to improvise and do what I can to bring a bit of
the beach to my family room mantle in Tennessee! This summer, I kept things simple and used
a lot of my "thrifty finds".
a lot of my "thrifty finds".
Window was free, found by trash in an alley
Sailboat picture was a yard sale find, cost: $5.00
Small mercury glass candle holder, Kohls on sale after Christmas, $4.00
Life preserver, yard sale, $3.00
Till next time......
This week I will be partying at:
Have a Daily Cup of Mrs Olson
Oh wow, I love the chippy window. It ties it all together. I almost killed myself gilding shells and have not got my big ones out. xo, olive
I'm in love with that window with the picture on it!
Those windows just scream beach to me! I love your life preserver, too. What a steal that was!
Lovely and fresh mantel, that old window is wonderful!
Enjoy summer, lucky you! I'm in winter and I don't like cold days at all...
Love your mantel...so unique! That window is fabulous! Thanks so much for sharing at The Scoop!...hugs...Debbie
Sea stars are my favorite! Your mantel is so pretty and is perfect for the summer months. I noticed the picture of Lucy and Ethel at the top.. so funny! Love those two and watched them every night when I was growing up. Classics!

Visiting from Tweak It Tuesday-
I love how you layered the picture on the old window!
Rebecca!! I love your blog too. I'm putting you on my blog roll. LOVE the mantle!!! And I just want to squeeze sweet little Kailyn's cheeks! Have a wonderful 4th!!
This could not be more perfect. Most especially the fence idea. Then, the window and all the accessories are perfect. I am a new fan.
Love old windows and yours looks great with the picture. I also love the picket fence around the fireplace.

I love this look! (I've always wanted one of those life preservers!)
So pretty! I love the nautical tough with the starfish.

That chippy window is sure a great find! I think you did a great job bringing our California Beach lifestyle to your home mantel in Tenessee. I am your newest follower. Would love for you to follow me back at Maddiebellahome.
Great summer Mantle Rebecca. Love that preserver! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
Love your summer mantle!
Looks wonderful! I love this theme! Thank you for joining Home Sweet Home!
Hi, I am visiting and following from Dwellings.
I love that picture hanging on the window. It looks so cute, chippy and graphic.
Such fab mantel décor! I love the way you hung the picture on top of the window frame... great idea! I sure wish I had a mantel to decorate, you did a lovely job!!
Love your mantel.
I just BOUGHT my first window and paid $35. I thought that was great because the only other one in the antique store was $75 and the windows I saw in Montecito for sale were $850.
And, you are right, California has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
Simple perfection. Love the fireplace "screen."
Super chic beachy! Love it:) Pinning
