Summer fluffing...

All my patriotic decorations have been packed up at home and I’ve pulled out a few of my favorite summer treasures. 

 A few of them were recent additions from estate sale land, including the sand pail shovel with the mermaid.
The shells were collected from our recent trip to Florida in April. The vintage sailboat teapot was a Goodwill steal. My grandmother had the exact same style teapot and I remember it fondly.
I’ve been picking aquarium figure and castles from estate sales. I just love their onion top shaped roofs.
 I’ve shared this picture in previous blog posts, but the little girl in the sunglasses is me with my Dad probably around 1970. Love those big purple sunglasses.
 I hope you are staying cool. Have a thrifty crafty weekend, friends.

Awww love those little castles! How fun to decorate for Summer. I keep my Americana up all Summer and don't really have beachy things even though I live on an island and am surrounded by beaches! I do love yours!

Every year I tell myself I'm going to have a cute vintage summer display after my 4th decorations come down. And every year I end up leaving my 4th decorations up because I love them so much! I love all the sweet beachy things you have been finding. Maybe this will motivate me :-)
