Havin' a Heat Wave!

Oh it is soooo hot! (No surprises there, right? It's hot where you are too, I bet.)

Too hot for  the flea market! Almost too hot for the beach.....


So instead of new flea market finds today, here's what I've been doing with that glass heart mold I got in the spring....


Here it is with a simple white vanilla-scented  pillar candle anchored in a handful of white beach pebbles...

...a few favorite sea treasures and old white ironstone platter and jug.


I love the way the white marble washstand top echoes the colors and graining of my beach stones. I hold the pebbles in my wet sandy hand and wonder where they come from? Are they marble too...or quartz?


And this is the heart and candle with a few nautical pretties, for a festive outdoor dinner....

and today it holds new beach finds...


and pocket gleanings from this hottest July day...


The hunt is fun...and the oh wow moment when a new old thing suddenly works is great too. Like---Ya knew you loved it, now what? And then...ah-ha!

Any ah-ha flea market moments in your summer? I want to know.

love
