Nautical Inspired Summer Shelf

Seeing as Easter was oh, a month and a half ago, I finally decided I should switch out my holiday shelf for something that wasn’t bunnies and eggs.  I’m not quite ready to put up Fourth of July decor so I gathered up a few items from around my home and put together a Nautical Inspired Summer Shelf.

The beachy/seaside looks is one of my favorites, and always says warm summer days to me!  On one side you can see my DIY Rope Vase, which lends itself perfectly to a nautical look.  I also love the different blue hues in the bottles that I’ve collected from trips to the thrift store.  I think I have a weakness for colored glass bottles.

Any guesses as to what the three blue globes are in the netting?

Well if you guessed unused curtain rod finials that I found at a yard sale last summer than you are correct!   They were sitting in on a table, all three for $0.50 and I just had to scoop them up!  No idea what I would use them for, but I thought they were so pretty.

And lastly I put some sea shell scrapbook paper in my frames underneath and made another quick banner with paper as well.

    I was trying desperately to decide what to do with my celebration space, and I truly did consider a nautical theme, but instead I chose a gardening theme. I live on the 9th floor and don’t have a garden, but it was in memory of my mum, since mothers day was the next day.
    Love your space.
