Summer Mantel with Coastal Charm

You know I couldn't leave it alone, right?  I mean, it just wasn't me!  Yeah, I'm talking about my summer mantel.  I didn't want fill it up too much but it was just too bare.

I didn't go too overboard, I only added 2 jars of some sand, shells, and sea glass.  I picked some up from Pottery Barn.  I just loved the pretty shades of blue.

The sand and blue glass picks up on the colors of the painting.

I am still so in love with this painting that I got from the auction.  It was well worth $32!

That bag of play sand I got from Home Depot has come in handy.

What do you think?  Maybe it needs a little more tweaking?

  4. Love it Tammy!! The picture is just lovely, I can see why you love it!!

  5. Your mantel looks good to me with the recent additions. Welcoming and breezy for the next few months!

  6. I like how you pulled colors from the painting. I'm always impressed with people who change things for the seasons. Maybe because we don't have noticeable seasons here, I don't think to do that. Either that, or I find something I like and don't want to mess with it. Hard for me to change some things. Bravo to you!

  7. I love anything beachy and this is wonderful. Thank you for sharing at the Thursday Favorite Things Blog Hop Hugs and wishes for a beautiful week ahead.


Thank you so much for all your lovely comments! I try to return the favor and visit each one of you! ~Blessings, Tammy~
