Small Details That Make Me Smile…

Each morning I look to my dream board and read the words, “I pay attention to small details that make me smile every time I see them.”  I’ve believed in this sentiment for years and feel it is really the most important thing to keep in mind while decorating your home.  My camera accompanied around the house over the weekend as I thought about my morning mantra…here are a few things that make me smile each day.

Starfish dangle gracefully from my dining room windows… 
Seashells, some over 50 years old,  fill a giant clam shell in a bookshelf…

Starfish cast a heavenly reflection each morning in my living room windows…

Salvaged bottles from the beach, each decorated by my hands, fill the dining room windows with their whimsy…

Recently found in the bottom of an old box of stuff from my mom’s belongings…this wreath fits perfectly into our Cottage’s decor…
A little planter with “Tranquility” stamped into it…too small for a plant, I stuck a favorite pillar candle inside and glued a seashell on the outside…

My gallery of old family photos, antique art & favorite quotes reminds me of the past and makes me feel safe and thankful…

My cobalt blue vase which is filled with various blooms throughout the year . . .
Homemade cookies and hot coffee in my favorite mug…definitely puts a huge smile on my face :O)
Obviously seashells, starfish and family are the details which make me smile…what things make you smile?
