Even though the last few days have been full of drizzle drops and gloomy clouds it was time to celebrate the beginning of Summer here at Honey Hill Farm....
I just adore decorating my charming entryway and have a pretty little sideboard that is home to all my decorating whims. I started the theme for my decorations by using my computer to print-out the word "BEACH". I used clip-art for the "frame" and just added the letters for each one. A pretty variegated ribbon holds the banner in place above the seaside pretties.
The decorating fun continued with old postcards, "clip-art" postcards (printed on old looking card-stock), seashells and a very cute Salt Water Taffy box that I purchased a few years ago at Cracker Barrel. It was full of taffy...but honestly, I would have bought it empty! (Cracker Barrel still carries this darling box in the candy section.) Of course, everything is nestled on my "standby" burgundy velvet....
A sweet pail purchased at Michael's years ago (it was my lunch pail in the School Days display!) becomes a sand bucket, spilling forth treasures of the sea... Lastly, I always add various trims to give my decorations a Victorian feel.
I will keep this display up until July, when my entryway will display it's Patriotic side. I hope you are inspired to change things for the season in your own home. I would love to hear your ideas for bringing the summer indoors!
