Perfect Beach Day

Here on the Alabama gulf coast, we are very blessed with perfect beach temps in the month of November. Yesterday, we headed down to our condo, and oh what a beautiful day it was there...mid 70's...just can't beat that! A perfect day to have lunch out on our beach front balcony. As you can see from the pictures, not many people were out on the beach, what a shame! If you are thinking about a vacation before the end of the year, maybe Gulf Shores is just the place for you, rates are low and the weather is perfect. I was busy yesterday adding some new decor items to our beach home. I never like keeping the same things in there to long, so I am always changing it up. Let's see what I changed this time around.

                             Just look at that beautiful water!!!!

I changed out the chest in the hallway,
and added this one. I am lovin' how this
makeover on my chest looks. Silly me,
I forgot to get a side pic. I painted the sides
white, so they would match the drawer fronts.
Added new lamps in this room.
Changed out items on this shelf unit.
                                 Removed what I had on this wall, and
                                 added a chalkboard that I made from
                                 an old famed print (you all know how
                                 THRIFTY I am).

                     Last thing I did, was I changed out the greenery in those
                            bamboo cones. Gotta keep things FRESH!!!
