Cool Aqua

 Hello everyone,
            Hope you all had a happy weekend and for us Canadians it is a long one as today is still a holiday.We had beautiful weather here but my heart goes out to our American friends who have had extreme weather conditions.
 This old sea shell belonged to my aunt and I would like to know the story behind it but alas too late.

I took these photos last week after my aqua daze tablescape and they were a lot less work and in the end I think I liked them better. There is something to be said for keeping it simple!

All thrift shop or yardsale dishes.




I hope you enjoyed some cool aqua!

Thank you for visiting,

Carolyn

You always have the most sublime pictures. I still want to end my days in the photo picture in your banner, on that beautiful linen covered chair next to lilacs and lace. I'm loving aqua too right now, I just made a post about it http://fairycafeandgarden.blogspot.com/2012/06/beautiful-aqua-marine-blue.html
Cool Aqua blessings! Lady

Hi Carolyn,
You have caught the soft ocean feel of summery days so perfectly... refreshing, soothing... Love all the aqua! I guess yard sales have been treating you good :-) I think they are one of my top 5 favorite things of summer!
