I have been trying to beachify my patio and yesterday's post on Daily Vitamin Sea inspired me to post a pic of my japanese glass float. I found it at a local thrift store and have my eyes peeled for more. Make sure to check out Maya's post in case you missed it yesterday. click here.
My little villa patio is still trying to find it's beachy identity so for now I just have a few items that make me smile scattered around. This itty bird fountain is pretty silly and small but I thought it was just charming and have had it in my collection for a few years. It's last home was a windowsill and now it accompanies the CA Grown cactus I bought at the 99 store. Can you believe I bought this cactus when I first moved to the land of Red and my black thumb has not interfered with it's life? The stones are also from the 99 cent store that now reside inside an old pickle jar.
I had been obsessed with these Ikea lanterns forever and they have been good friends. I basically move them all over the villa when I need some romantic lights and/or beach vibe. You might recall this necklace that my dear friend Janet brought me from Tahiti. Jolie n'est ce pas?I have to confess I am a bit of a dumpster diver and rescued this plant recently. I added shells to the dirt (another ideas from sweet Maya ! check out her Seashell Garden Ideas)
Oh and look who crashed the party and brought his own pillow!! Norman Alexander! Like I said it is a work in progress but little by little I am sure it will come together and by then we will be on to the next villa I'm sure! :)
