TREASURES, LIGHTHOUSES, AND THE BEACH

Greetings, dear readers!

First, some treasures found in the little harbor town of South Haven:


I found some more vintage linens...along with a new cocoa tin that matches the OTHER one purchased a while ago...(oh no...is this the start of a (gasp) COLLECTION?!?!) Anyway, the vintage tray will be hung next to the blue one (shown a few posts ago)...along with the tins that will be strategically placed...somewhere. You may recognize the linens purchased from Hart's fabrics? I'll be making valances, and other kitchen goodies with them...

The "old, ratty" pieces of tablecloths will be used to make a new kitchen banner...behold:


Images from a wonderful blog recommended by Sandy of 521 Lake Street! Pictures soon of the creation *I* come up with!

And now the lighthouses and beach:

Silver Beach at St. Joseph!

More pics and show n tell soon!
Hugs,
Paula Clare
