Hey there…I hope your week is off to a great start! We’ve been super busy with projects and painting furniture. We can’t wait to show you all that we have created in the next couple of weeks.

Today I want to share with you my Coastal Inspired Summer Mantel decor. A couple of weeks ago I was fortunate to go on vacation to Anna Maria Island, Florida. Honey Bee and I enjoyed a fantastic week there spent with friends. When we came back home, I wanted to recapture the light and colorful feeling of the beach in my home. I didn’t want to go all out “beach” decor but I wanted to use the colors of the sea on my mantel.

Believe it or not, I already had all of these glass vessels in my stash. I know, I know…it may seem like I’m a hoarder – but in a good way 🙂

I had never been to Anna Maria Island before, and was so surprised with how beautiful the water was.  It was postcard perfect, azure blue and crystal clear.
