Beach Cottage Touches

Soon, my fireplace mantle will be graced with signs of Autumn.  
For now, these last few weeks of Summer, it will remain decorated with thrifted finds that lend themselves to the Beach Cottage look.

Everything on my mantle are thrift store finds with the exception of family photos.

A bunch of frames given a fresh coat of white sit along with pretty ironstone creamers and starfish.

There is something about an empty frame.  I have them everywhere.
One of these days I plan on making a Gallery Wall filled with them and other signs and photos. 
That's a "chore" for another day.

This old brass compass sits on my coffee table.  It's broken and the mirror is cracked.  But I love the patina and it looks so pretty next to my dish filled with seashells.

I am loving on this fan.  I don't usually find them when I'm treasure hunting.  This blue is my inspiration for the change over I am working on right now in the Living Room.  I am going to add touches of this all around.  Pillows, candles, jars and bottles.  That is my "Fall Project".

I love the Beach Cottage look and it works so well with shabby and farmhouse style pretties too.

Enjoy what is left of your summer!

Thank you so much Roselle for your kind words on my blog. I understand what you mean about the gardens not growing well in the past few years. Ours has struggled too. I think it is the environment and lack of bees, etc. 20 years ago our vegetable garden produced so much more and the plants were always so green and healthy.

Your home and creations are always so beautiful and you know I love the seaside touches. i am sorry that I do not come by more. I forgot that you had a blog! xo Kerrie

I love beach cottage style! I just wish I had the beach house to go along with it. :)

Thanks so much for linking up with "Let's Talk Vintage!" last week. I featured your beach cottage mantel today!
