Summer time...

Our weather has cooled a bit and early in the morning, you can sometimes feel cool breezes mixed in with the warm breezes,
is fall on it way?
Not sure but I must admit, I'm a bit ready for cooler weather.
the calendar says that it's still summer, 
so I thought I'd put together one last table with a warm, summer theme.

It all started at Big Lots. My sister and I were shopping there and she found these plates.

She loves anything sea related, so these babies caught her eye.
The colors were so unusual,
so when she asked if I wanted them, I had to think twice.
But then,
the wheels started turning and before we knew it,
we had a table in mind.

We added a few things here and there, it was so much fun!

I hope you had a very happy summer!

In case you are interested:
Seahorse Dishes: Big Lots (they're plastic!)
Square Plates: Target
Napkins: World Market (neutral), vintage (coral)
