Summer Fun

We've been visiting the beach as often as we can.
A sweet gray seal poked its nose out of the ocean waves and then its head.
What a cutie!








I was so excited to find these vintage party balls from Italy.
They're so much fun to decorate with.
It feels like a celebration every day with them.









Gorgeous natural quartz candle holder.
It sheds a lovely warm light with plenty of sparkle.





I hope you're all having a glorious summer.

It's a Holiday in Greece I Crave



Welcome to Castles Crowns and Cottages ~ Europe: Simply Irresistible Link Party




I had a dream the other night that I was in Greece. In that dream I was watching a play that was being performed out over the water. I could feel the breeze coming off the water and smell the salt in the air. I didn't want to wake up from that dream, but I did. Here is the next best thing to that dream and actually being in the place I've been thinking of visiting for years. I have visions of living a bit like a mermaid. I'd wake up in the morning, swim, and explore all day long. I'd watch the moon rise over the waters, allowing myself to be lulled to sleep by the gentle lapping of the water against the shore.

Or. . . I could settle for a little of this. . .

















While I'm wearing this . . .












And I'll make sure to rest in some of the most beautiful rooms I've ever seen . . .












And I will be sure to shop a bit and dance a Greek dance in the street . . .








And at the end of my day, I will travel down a private corridor . . .




I will pass beautiful doors with amazing antique knockers . . .




And my path will end at a quaint Greek home . . .




Where I will lay my head on a beautiful white fluffy pillow and dream of another day in paradise.
