Summer, sea and sunshine

I decided to set up a pretty vignette on our coffee table this morning. I use this wooden tray to hold candles and change the items I place with them and the colors and sorts of candles regularly. I had placed the lavender candles in this tray for the spring with other accessories but decided to use them once again, as they are not yet burned up, combined with seashells I have collected over the years. I am sorry this photo appears so dark. Our camera has trouble with certain lighting and it is a windy and extremely grey day here. If you enlarge the photo, you will find the sweetest tiny starfish in the tray.

So we have the summer and sea with a prediction of the sunshine for over the weekend. I do hope the temperatures don't become as hot as they are predicting though. We are off this afternoon to our cottage. Hurray! We have an extra day. Friends are up in the area for their vacation and we are going to try and do some fun things on Friday and Saturday as well as me wanting to cook some nice meals for them.

What are your plans for the weekend?

Heidi I love your display of seashells, and the lavender candle is so pretty! Did you find a message in the bottle?

Enjoy your time at the cottage - especially with your friends.

Heidi - This is so pretty. I love the candles and the seashells together and the glass just makes it all complete. The tray is simply perfect for the feeling of summer and sea. I hope ou have a wonderful time at the cottage this weekend. Be sure to take lots of photographs to share when you return.
