Welcome To The 68th Masterpiece Monday!

 I'm into my Summer time decorating mode now. I know, it's still April, for goodness sakes.

 And Friday, we had a down pouring of rain, rare for So. Cal.
 But as always the next day is sunny and all of the smog is gone and it feels like Summer.
 I dug through my linens and found my starfish runner I made a year or two ago.
 All I did was mix blue, green and white acrylic paint. Make my own starfish stamp. And apply it onto a drop cloth scrap.
 I also save bags of sand from the beach to use in vignettes.
It makes really good and free vase fillers.

I think if I lived at the beach (and didn't have toddlers), I'd have it decorated like your summer decor all of the time. I love the starfish stamped tablecloth you made - very simple and pretty. thanks for hosting.
