Bare Feet Welcome


Today I am sharing with you a little bit of my August seaside decor. I no longer live by the sea but I did at one time. I have fond memories of visiting the shore. August is a good time to reminisce on days gone by.

This country shelf is in my dining room. I change it up during the seasons and holidays. (Please ignore the crooked candle!) The rose teapot doesn't really match unless you imagine taking tea by the sea.



I have never really had any luck fishing until I caught these sweet fish at Joann's one day. They are made of wood and the two tied together with rough twine.


I absolutely love this ocean garland. Another find from Joann's. The sea stars (starfish) are ceramic and interTWINEd with the big twine knots.


The sweet wharf birdhouse and barefoot sign complete my shelf-scape.

Tomorrow, I will share more seaside decor.

Do you enjoy visiting the ocean?

I am having a terrible time trying to get comments verified on many of the blogs that I usually comment/visit. Am I the only one having this problem? It took me over twenty minutes of clicking road signs, cars, buses, or store fronts to get one comment to take on one particular blog. I ended up very frustrated and with a headache trying to get it to work.

  1. I am looking forward to a visit to the sea shore in September. I agree about word verification. I changed my blog to comment moderation to make it easier for readers to comment.

  2. It is nice to see someone embrace August for summer. It gets lost in the back to school these days.

    1. Diane, my stuff is pretty much mishmash too. Somehow it works though. :-)

  6. Hi Gina! Your ocean themed-shelf is lovely! I haven't been to the ocean for years and years, but I do have fond memories of it. I have plans of decorating my upstairs bathroom in an oceanic theme, whenever I get around to it.
    August is indeed a wonderful time to look back. I'm already looking at my garden wistfully, thinking how it will be gone in a short time.
    Love,
    Marqueta

    1. Marqueta, oh I hope you post pictures when you do decorate it. How fun! I completely agree with you on our gardens. My berry bushes have stopped producing for the year.

But oh! the blessing it is to have a friend to whom one can speak fearlessly on any subject; with whom one's deepest as well as one's most foolish thoughts come out simply and safely. Oh, the comfort — the inexpressible comfort of feeling safe with a person — having neither to weigh thoughts nor measure words, but pouring them all right out, just as they are, chaff and grain together; certain that a faithful hand will take and sift them, keep what is worth keeping, and then with the breath of kindness blow the rest away. ~Dinah Maria Craik, A Life for a Life, "Chapter XVI: Her Story," 1859
