My Beachy Spring Decorating

We are having some very lovely weather here in Central California. Unfortunately, we need rain and snow in the mountains very badly.  Could all of you in the snowy places, send us some?  Thanks!  Anyways, the sunshine makes me want to decorate for spring. Lighten things up and dream of some beach time!

Springtime!

Springtime!

I love decorating with seashells. They are neutral, plus have interesting shapes and I can fit them in anywhere. They go especially well with all my turquoise. I am trying to slowly go to a more neutral color scheme, so my shells will still fit in perfectly.

My style

This shelf is in my dining/computer area. I have had it a very long time.  It used to be that wonderful hunter green, until it got a fresh coat of paint. I also changed out the hooks for some old doorknobs. That glass one took a lot of glue and drying time to get it to stay! IMG_2586

Old doorknobs

Lauren decoupaged this frame with old book pages, I have had the turquoise jar for a long time, the ‘S’ came from Michaels and the little glass bowl holds a bunch of old keys. IMG_2583

Simple and neutral

Here we have a spindle I covered with twine, an adorable picture of the girls when they were small and a jar given to me by Haley.

This cute little bird drawing in the seashell frame was drawn by Lauren when she was in grade school. She didn’t like it, but I thought it was perfect! I have had it framed in different areas of the house ever since.

Such a sweet little picture

I bought this small crate from the Railroad Museum in Sacramento when the girls were young and we visited the museum with my sister, who lived in Sacramento at the time.  I have a small sea urchin bowl on top and a seashell and jar inside.  I won a 6 pack of these wonderful turquoise Ball jars from another blog. I filled it partway with sand and added a few small sand-dollars. IMG_2581 Underneath the shelf I have a white metal record-player table.  Remember those! Really big CD’s! I have an old turquoise bucket that is actually an ice-cream maker bucket from my grandma.  I have no idea how old this thing is.  But the color is perfect! I’m sure Grandma new thought it would be used this way! I filled it with branches and flowers from my yard. I love the blossoms! IMG_2588 Well, that’s the start of spring decorating! I am still working on the hallway and hope to have that done soon so I can show it off.  Hope you all have a wonderful day!
