Are you headed to the beach this summer?
Do you have pictures from past beach trips just waiting to be framed?
If you answered yes to either of these questions, then I have a simple, but cute idea for those beachy pictures.
The idea for this project was found inside this book. I found it brand new at the thrift shop last week and can see many cute and simple ideas I want to try.
The hardest part of this project is selecting your favorite beachy photo. I had to dig back in the archives to find this one of my boys and some of their cousins.
In addition to your photo you will need a clear cylindrical shaped vase or glass, sand and seashells.
Dump some sand into the vase, stick your photo in the sand, and sprinkle seashells around the bottom of photo.
How's that for easy?
Here's another quick idea.
I like to keep a pitcher, vase or canning jar filled with mint in the kitchen during the summer months. It looks and smells so refreshing on those hot days.
It's nice to keep some in the center of the dinner table to be used as a natural after dinner mint. Very refreshing without any sugar or calories :-).
Sometimes I put little individual pitchers at each place setting. If my guests want to add a sprig to their iced tea or ice water, all they have to do is break off a piece.
I know you will probably find this hard to believe, but every now and then I add a few flowers to my mint. By the way, I was relieved to hear that so many of you don't mind my excessive flower postings because I'm not sure I can go too long without showing flowers. :) :).
Just a few simple Summer ideas for you.
