Seashells, starfish, and lanterns — Bring on Summer!

So when your BBB (Best Bloggin Buddy) makes an IKEA trip what do you get??  Why lanterns of course!  Read all about it on The Shabby Chic Cottage.  Now don’t we all need a BBB like that?? 

White starfish in a lantern = heavenly…  A great summer “filler” is starfish and seashells. Makes you feel all beachy and summery. (Are either of those even words??)  Keeping with this summer decor theme…

Feeling beachy and summery already. 
(Many thanks to a special friend for the shells!) 
For my other BBB lantern I did something a little different…

Eggs in a lantern??  Why not?? 
Placing that first lantern on my mantel-less mantel
 (yes..I changed it already)

Where do you use shells and starfish in your decor?  And don’t we all need a BBB like Gina?
~Thanks for stopping by!~

    That starfish in the lantern looks great….I always add a few vintage sequins or other pieces of vintage to my starfish! Great photos! I love your blog!

    I love the pop of red on the little pedestal and your big tin star. I’d really like to find one of those for my front door. Thanks for taking time to leave a comment on my vignette post! :)

    Love all the beachy accents, but you know I’m a sucker for anything coastal! I have that EXACT little silver lantern! I’m going to have to try the egg idea! Too cute!
