Small Town Living at Its Best

For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in Him shall have everlasting life.

Tabletop Tuesday

I'm loving my faux fireplace, and have it ready for summer, even though this past 7 days have been plagued with cold weather and rain. I guess I'm hoping my positive thinking will help. I have a few photos of DH and I on different trips, in different kinds of frames, and some battery operated candles from Nell Hills. They are awesome. They have 2 settings. One is on, one is one for fours and automatically shuts off-then will turn on every day at the same time and run for 4 hours ----Oh! I guess 3 settings OFF! HA! The center of attention is my 20x26 canvas print photo of the ocean, that I took when we were in Puerto Vallarta, in February. I can stand in front of it for hours, and almost hear the ocean.

A picture frame found at a garage sale that someone put fabric in, instead of a photo.

Shells from our different beach travels through the years, and a dollar store plate, shaped like a fish.

Please join me as I go on over to the other Tablescape Tuesday participants at the following address:


  1. A treasured reminder of your trip. I love the ocean. So pretty is your vignette.

  2. Pretty seaside vignette, Sandi.

    I was tempted to turn on the fireplace this morning! Chilly, here in NE MO.

  3. LOVE your photo of the ocean. It is gorgeous and what a wonderful backdrop for all of your beautiful accessories to complete an ocean themed mantel. It is so pretty and just makes you think beach. Love it. Thanks so much for joining the party. Hugs, Marty
