When I go by this spot in my hallway, it is a bit like going down memory lane. Want to come along? As you can see, I have tried to create a little mini beach getaway.

The shells are from Mexico when B and I went on our first trip out of the U.S. (ha ha 2 hrs away!) The little bike is from our recent trip to Venice. There were some very crafty artisans who were creating these on the spot and B is a big time bike lover.
This little mini-beach is my recreation of B and I's first trip ever to Santa Barbara!! I collected these little shells there and kept those beachy memories alive via this little beach bowl. The starfish, we also picked up in Baja. To anyone else they are just shells but to me, this little beach has special meaning.
How do you keep some of your beachy memories alive?
