Sand and Sea Wreath

So it seems that August is all about Wreaths for us! But, who cares? You can never have enough wreaths - can you? (Please don't ask my hubby that question since all of our closets have wreaths stuffed in them and they are taking over the back wall of our garage too!)

We love the beach and I have shells from quite a few family trips over the years and thought that our mantle needed a makeover......and a new wreath!

I have to take our wreath photos outside since it is so hard to get good pictures in our living room.

 All the supplies came from Hobby Lobby, including the cool, sea weed looking greenery.  It was actually a garland (on sale last week!) that I cut pieces off of.  Doesn't it look just like sea weed? And the wreath has a such beautiful variations of color and reminds me of driftwood.  The sand dollars came from a trip we made to Charleston in 2004 and the starfish came from Hobby Lobby. I love having the sand dollars in the wreath to remind me finding them in surf and of all the fun we had on that vacation.

"When anxious, uneasy and bad thoughts come, I go to the sea, and the sea drowns them out with its great wide sounds, cleanses me with its noise, and imposes a rhythm upon everything in me that is bewildered and confused."       — Rainer Maria Rilke

I have so many great memories of the seashore and love the way I feel when we are there.  Do you have a favorite vacation spot?  Hope you were able to visit your favorite place this year!

We will share more of our Beach inspired mantel next week, including our sand dollar garland! 

Hope everyone has a wonderful week!
