It’s said that every season has a story.
I like to think of summer’s story as being sweetly simple, and you know how I love simple.
Between working on my screen porch and immediately jumping into another fun project (which I’ll show you on Monday!), I haven’t had a lot of energy to put into summer decorating. But it’s 93* here in the deep south today, totally feeling like summer, so I pulled out a few summery things to give the mantle a bit of sweet summertime!
But I only put out a few things because after all, I’m keeping it simple.
Simple summer decorating, simple dinners, simple clothes…
Adding a few of my favorite vintage glass bottles help hide a speaker for the TV and my little whitewashed flag adds a little USA-love.
And these lanterns are a nice touch to lighten up the stone on the fireplace. I keep them out all the time and just change up what’s inside according to the season..for summer I like the white star fish and coral.
Yes, if ever there’s a time to embrace simplicity, summer is the time.
Do you find yourself simplifying your life in the summer? If so, would you share how you simplify?
~Sending you simple summertime wishes my friends~
