Farewell Summer

I love sea shells. Even though we do not live near a beach, there is nothing like sea shells to bring my heart to the ocean's doorstep. My favorite candle {did I say I really, really love candles?} to burn during the summer is Yankee Candle's Sun and Sand. It smells exactly like the beach. I could burn it year round but I love fall and Christmas candles too.
Here is an old iron urn filled with sea shells, some old, some new.
Before I started selling antiques at Ms. Wendy's Antiques, my family bought me this crystal tiered server one Christmas from Ms. Wendy's.
I love it! I have used it to display some of my fav treasures: vintage jewelry, family pics, skeleton keys, my husband's boutoniere from our wedding day and old watch faces.

More sea shells - I have a few of these urns still available at Ms. Wendy's Antiques.

Farewell summer, welcome fall. :)

See you next time sugah! xo's Heidi
