hi..how was your weekend?
this is a post i did last spring. i'm bringing it back for the summer mantel link party at the lettered cottage. looking at this on this cold morning is reminding me of the warmth of summer.
with the help of gaugin prints i cut & framed from a spare art book, hibiscus, shells, a mini pineapple and iphoto i created a vintage island mood.
hope you enjoyed the trip to the tropics.
