Morning friends!

I hope you're having a wonderful summer so far! I've been quiet around blog land and in social media these past weeks. It's hard to concentrate in so many fronts when having visitors and quite frankly I've been enjoying them, my family, and the warm days we've had so far!

A Coastal Mantel + Summer Projects

July 02, 2021

Fourth of July weekend is here! Are you celebrating it with family and friends?

I'm excited about it, because we're planning to spend the day over in Washington D.C.  We're going to have a picnic while waiting for the fireworks. It's been more than a decade since last time we did this same plan and well, now that we have family in town, I think it's going to be full of unforgettable memories for us all.

Now that summer is here, a trip to the beach is also in the plans, but while the time arrives we can bring the beach inside our house! Ha, at least we can pretend. ;)

Today, as part of the Home & Décor Encore series, I'm sharing a coastal summer mantel full of sea shells and coastal décor. As usual, my blogging friends are also sharing some of the best summer projects from their archives.  Check them out below!

Big thanks to Doreen at Hymns & Verses & Lori at The Stonybrook House for organizing this group.

Backyard deck for fourth of July

Hello there!

America's birthday is only a week away, but there's still time to plan a little or big Fourth of July celebration!

Last weekend I set up a red, white and blue table, that I might replicate on Independence day. Decorating a table is an easy way to celebrate this special day with family and friends enjoying great summer food.
