You know, the time where it's okay to start wearing your white shorts and time to put away those boots, unless your the kind that wears boots with your Daisy Dukes that is.
So, since it's almost, kinda, sorta summer, I figured I would usher in Summer time on the mantel this weekend.
I think my mantel evokes my thoughts about summer......bright, simple, beachy with a touch of orange and aqua blue.
Some orange wooden buoys got a little refresh with white and a pop of aqua to coordinate with some wooden oars that I painted.
The beach sign that I made here, that I absolutely love... has surfaced every year and points South to the .......
Sea glass colored vessel that has some "pretend" beach grass in it. I sprayed some dried greens with white paint...Shhhhh, don't tell anyone, especially this guy......
This Sperm Whale print that I framed in one of my Ribba frames from IKEA .... was actually the inspiration for it all. Factoid for you. Did you know The Sperm whale is the world's largest toothed predatory fish. Males can reach longer than 65 feet and females 35 feet. Luckily for me and most of you, we should be able to spot one.
And although this makes me feel slightly better when building sand castles at the beach this year, every time I dip my toe in the ocean I think about the original movie 'Jaws' ...and how after all these years it still creeps me out.
How about you?
Happy start of summer.....well almost.
PS- If you really want to be the subject matter expert on Whales while sitting on the beach this summer go here.
