Summer and the 4th of July

 It's time...I'm tired of waiting.  The 4th of July is coming up and that signals the middle of summer to me.  Therefore, I took it upon myself to declare that it is time to put up my summer/July 4th decor regardless of the weather outside.  Unpack those boxes in your garage and make your home look a little more summer-y too. It will make you feel happier.  I guarantee it. We like to decorate with things that our family has collected throughout the provides us with little glimpses down memory lane.

We like to decorate our home with a little beachy/seashore flavor.  This little guy is in my bathroom.

 I love this fish pillow in my family room.  It makes me want to swim in the ocean.
 I place seashells throughout my home.  This one is on my mantle.
 This star fish is on my coffee table.  My son insisted we buy it...he named it Patrick.
I like to add light colors like this white vase and yellow bamboo plate.  I changed the planter too.  These are on my armoire.    They make me happy.
 This picture and shell box are in the formal living room.  I topped it with a real shell.
 A picture of coral and a shell my son got in Puerto Vallarta.  He really had to bargain with the shop keeper to get it for 6 bucks.
I love this candle holder.  I got the huge glass container at Marshalls.  I added sand (from our sand box), a huge pillar candle and real shells.  The sand dollar was a gift from our friends for Christmas...thanks Caporales! I keep this on our dining room table. 
 This is in my laundry room...looks like the starfish is a little crooked.
 On our patio...we carried the theme throughout our home.  I got these pillows at Pottery Barn last year.
 This is one of my favorite places.  I love to just sit out on the patio and watch the kids play in the yard.
Let's not forget Independence day.  This is inside our armoire.  A little nod to the flag.
 In our entry way.  I love to bring in a little Americana this time of year.  Coming up soon, a wreath and "fireworks" to give your friends to celebrate July 4th.
