High Summer Decor

I finished writing this post
only to come back and see it published 
with absolutely none of my words!

Maybe it's for the best.
It's definitely a simple little post
about a few 
High Summer 
decor elements I've added in recently
to break up what feels like the dog days of summer.

Simply put
it's lemons in shells
using shells instead of flowers for the most part.

The Shasta daisies in my gardens are thriving!

So I brought in a few of the daisies inside
making arrangements with branches from the garden.

More shells and special candles for the living room centerpiece.

Morning coffee in the courtyard.

I realized I never show our beautiful night lighting
something I think is so beautiful and necessary in a landscape.

In the backyard I am beyond tickled with a new little tufted inflatable pool!

The pool made for a brand new 'room' for the backyard!

Which made a family dinner in the backyard a must!

With some of my favorite people!
Talk about summer fun
a grateful heart!

As always my friends

I wish you love and joy
as you style your life
