keeping summer memories

I'm all about having things in your home that mean something to you.
I want to come home be surrounded by familiar and special things,
full of our stories and memories.

Summer is my favourite time of year,
and we have already made some absolutely amazing memories this year,
some of which I wanted to display as a little daily reminder.
A little corner of our home dedicated to our love of the beach,
and to some amazing days spent at various beaches this summer.

A hurricane lamp full of shells;
little treasures collected from our day at Barafundle Bay
and our weekend on Mersea Island.
Little wooden beach huts and a light house
from our special weekend in Scarborough,
there is even a little seagull there,
which will always remind me of those bruiser seagulls that Scarborough is full of.
More beach huts on some beautiful drift wood,
and where would summer be without a spot of bunting too.
And a perfect summer smell to top it off;

It might seem a funny time of year to be lighting candles,
but I tend to light them most evenings all year around.
I just love a scented candle
and I have far too many.
This scent is so perfectly summery,
it reminds me of tropical beaches,
sun tan lotion
and a pina colada in my hand.
