Gone Coastal!



Giveaway Click HERE!



I was playing around with some sea creatures. They are so beautiful and I wanted to incorporate them into my seascape fireplace.

The starfish are so big and I love the texture. I decided to make a banner of shells.

I grabbed some twine and started to tie starfish and sand dollars to it.












Then I tied it to the mantel so it can hang below my other shells.




It looks better in person because of the shadowing of textures that you cannot see in a picture.
I think this is just what it needed!






I'm loving the summertime! Could do without the extreme heat though!
Wish I was on the beach right now! At least I can look at this and dream...
