Viv at Viv'S Whimsy inspired me with her adorable beachy theme! If you haven't seen her adorable cute beach displays swim on over. Way cute! And, then Laurie at Magpie Ethel has made the cutest under the sea mermaids in her classic Magpie style. These girls are just soooo creative!
So, I just had to put up a little beachy theme on my mantle. Just for fun! We live about 3 hours to the beach, but boy does it sound wonderful! Funny how I always feel like a child at the beach!
Where did you learn to swim? I learned to swim in the San Diego Bay.
My mother taught me, and my sister and brother to swim. In fact, my mother has taught many, many children to swim. And, she taught my husband to swim, too!
We grew up water bugs. We all love the water. We have always had a pool. Living in the desert, it is a must. We left our above ground pool in the desert at our rental, and since our grandchildren live in the house, they are having a great time in the over 90 degree water! Yep, the water is HOT!
Our son lives in Long Beach. He is learning to surf! Hang 10, Matt!
And me, well we have a big bathtub, and when I get to hot, I go play in the water for a while!
The blue fish are from the 50's. I just love them! They're meant to hang on the wall with the gold bubbles. Some of the shells are from Long Beach, others from yard sales. The toys belong to Ann Estelle. I made the paper craft.
Blessings to you and your family!
