It's time again for me to come up with a summer decor idea for
I have an idea of what I want to do
have even started working on it.
But, since it's Throwback Thursday I thought
I would look at last years entryway.
Last year I used some really bright, hot colors
reminisent of the beach
beach life here.
My wreath was actually made from
dollar store flip flops
lots of summer embellishements.
I loved it but sio did my DIL so, it found a new home in the fall....
Our chalkboard depicted all the things
that we love about summer.
My granddaughter Mimi made it
so fun and colorful....
The bench held a beach bag, towel and flip flops-
things that we use daily ...
They were in the same fun colors
already used throughout.
This was one look our entryway sported
I must say I loved the bright whimsical feel it gave as you enterd our home.
The second look was a patriotic one.
With all things red, white and blue.
While Iwas ok with this look
it just wasn't one of my best efforts.
I think it needed some pizzaz....
This year I am looking to change it up quite a bit.
I am thinking I am going to use the
beautiful, calming coastal blues and whites
see just which one I like the best.

you'll have to wait for the new summer entry till next week..
