Because of the great humidity here ferns seem to grow wonderfully.  So, I decided to try my hand at a fern garden.  Because I know virtually nothing about them except that they love humidity and shade I did some research and found the perfect place for them...right next to our patio where we only receive morning sun and the rest of the day is shady.  I was fortunate to have the larger frond ferns given to me to transplant by my neighbor who has tons of them growing everywhere.  I purchased the asparagus ferns and four gardenias to place around the larger frond ferns then layered around them with straw pine needles for the acidity.  They are doing great.

And here is Fred, my pelican wind chime who I simply adore and who makes the prettiest sound when of course the wind blows!

Some other plants my neighbor gave me to transplant.

A gift from my neighbor.

Here are also a few more pics of things I have going on in the house which I am still working on...a never ending decorating job.

Here is my blue oar that is distressed and has my favorite number, 5 and a beach sign pointing right to the door and out to the beach! LOL

My french Cannes giclee print that I've had for several years.

My marble top table with my french lamp and burlap shade.

That's it for today, I hope that everyone is having a wonderful weekend!!

Fence Critters

Here is another lizard running across the top of the fence.  Does anyone know what the orange and yellow thingy (for lack of a better word for it) is on this lizard?  We see them opening their mouths and then this "thingy" appears?

Here are also a few pics of my new design style:

I just had this pillow cover made

We just finished painting this accent wall in a watery blue color.

My newest and most favorite rug!  Notice the red and white vintage buoy?

I made this.  I love the salt life sticker at the bottom.  It pretty much describes life around here.  A salt smell in the air and sand always in between my toes!  This is really a brand of clothing line but also represents a way of life here.

New beachy colors!

Just a few peek's of what I'm attempting to incorporate.  Stay tuned for a new table redo!
