Seashells

 

JulyAugust 246

Welcome to The Tablescaper.

JulyAugust 246

Summer……

JulyAugust 224

What does Summer mean to you?

JulyAugust 227

To me, it means….

JulyAugust 228

…water…

JulyAugust 237

…and shells…

JulyAugust 202

…dining outside…

JulyAugust 282

…and soaking up the sunshine…

…watching the sunshine…

…reflect.

JulyAugust 228

And if it does get too hot…

Copy of JulyAugust 206

…just jump in…

JulyAugust 217

…or have a beverage to cool off!

JulyAugust 256

There is nothing like…

Copy of JulyAugust 209

…resting on the beach…

JulyAugust 195

…and having a few quiet moments…

JulyAugust 214

…to reflect…

JulyAugust 277

…upon life in general…

JulyAugust 276

…and it’s beauty.

Copy of JulyAugust 208

Where ever you may be…

JulyAugust 284

…I hope your summer days…

JulyAugust 251

…are filled…

JulyAugust 289

…with beauty.

Without question, you have captured summer. Having water close by is a must for me no matter what time of year, and I'm especially grateful to have it right out the back door when in Maine.
