Summer Sea Shell Mantle



Here is the mantle all ready for summer! Coral and sea shells. You can't go wrong decorating with them.

It's been raining ALL DAY. Went to a FABULOUS garage sale and bought "lawyer's" bookcase for hubby's toys. It's in the garage until we make room for it..( image that!) The sweet older lady is moving into a smaller place and she has Antiques! I may stop back tomorrow.

I also have been making cards and will "share" those next post. With the cloudy day, photo's don't turn out the best.

Hubby has a nice closing tomorrow! Very Thankful!!! God's timing is always perfect!

Happy Treasure Hunting!

Warmly,

deb :)

I love your SEA SHELLS and the mantle is gorgeous!!

It's been ages since I've done any antiquing or going to yard sales. I do get the "itch" lately...but haven't gone. I'm just too tired, the Bell's Palsy just takes it out of me.
