It's Time

Do you ever look around your house and say to yourself . . .
                                      'It is so time past time to change ____'
                    For me its my counter tablescape.  Don't you agree?

Seriously I know the 4th has come and gone.  And it is sooo time to make a change.

So, I went over to my go to friends at Pinterest for some inspiration . . .
Rustic & Elegant Summer Tablescape

Oh I heart the galvanized tin buckets.  I have to go back over and visit Laura at Finding Home!
Couldn't pull this off in a million years.  But I am seriously gonna look for those buckets.

Back to Pinterest!
they call it a Lilly Luncheon but it gives me the idea to throw some kind of palm springs party lol
Very cute and summery bright.  But I have no Flamingos. hehe.  This does remind me in a wierd sort of way
of this fabric . . .
Yes it is a bolt.  I had to go to the utter most parts of the sewing closet to dig it out.  And yes it is laying on a lovely little yellow just waiting to be pressed.  This palm tree looking fabric sorta says beach.  I bought it in
the '90s and no I am not a hoarder.  I am a fabric artist. HeHe.

Yes I know what your thinking.  It's time to use it.  Ok. Ok. I agree.  Off  for more inspiration.

Are these not adorable?  And available on ETSY.  I couldn't believe they are embroidery.  I think I know someone down the road aways in West Texas that needs these!  They look like B.J. to me.
But  not the look I am going for today!

Kinda like this but would you believe I don't have any shells?  I need to make a dollar store run.

I am getting somewhere though.  I'm thinking candles and sand.  And I have these cute fish plates.
                                           Now where are those fishys?

Oh I think I found it.  I really have to find those fish plates now.  I sure hope they aren't in storage!

Love the burlap too.   Luckily I don't have any huge acorns.  But what I like love here are the succulents.
And the silver flower pots.  Hmm.  I have a Target gift card.  I think I like this better than those galvanised
buckets in the first pic.

Hmm.  Not sure maybe a little more inspiration . . .

Love the wood plank.  That's cool.  But I'm thinking for another time.  Would love to copy this table!
