Centerpiece of the Month~ August

The month of August has almost slipped past me, like a Kat in the night.

It is time to send my centerpiece of the month to Janelle at Talk of Tomatoes. In spite of trying to sell a house, she has managed to find the time to round us all up.

Last month Meeta posted a collection of orange. Myriam had the most prefect and simple design of cats grass in a square vase. MishMash filled a watermelon with summer flowers. All such creative ideas!I am dreaming of a trip to the beach... I am in need of a re-charge. My centerpiece this month is a collection of sea shells, and a reminder of the ocean waves.

Labor Day is around the corner... could it be that summer is almost over?

Hallelujah y'all!

We got a full 1/2 of rain yesterday, just in the nick of time! My better half is out there planting collards and sweet peas as we fall must be around the corner!!

I love the shells. I'm craving a beach trip too.

Donetta said...

That is so beautiful. That coral is a splendid sample. Now I want to visit the great waters.
Summer is closing down in some places We have had 113 or above for 29 days in a row a new record.

I like summertime, but this summer has tried my patience, with no rain and high temps. I'm definitely ready for my favorite season! FALL!!

After being out of town, I'm playing "catch up" tonight on my blog reading. It's been fun seeing what you've been up to.

Love the centerpiece. You know you're always welcome here at my beach anytime you want to come. I'm serious about that offer too. Wouldn't that be fun?! October is actually my favorite time at the beach.


Sandi @ the WhistleStop Cafe said...

Mother Goose~ what's your centerpiece today?
Sandy~ I am ready for fall to.
Kat~ I may be calling!

JANET said...

Ah, the beach! I can just hear those oceans waves in those seashells! Beautiful centerpiece!

Sandi, I'm not far from many beaches here. I did live closer until we just moved to La Habra. But, I live right near Beach Blvd. which, when taken south, passes Knott's Berry Farm and then runs smack into Huntington Beach. And, I grew up in Long Beach. So, here you are showing this fancy beachy centerpiece and I want to hop in my car and head south!

Very nice, by the way...
