{Simple Beach Tablescape} and Giveaway!

It's time for a beach tablescape! Well I am going to go ahead and confess that I am more of your mountain kind of gal and in the winter months but there is just something about the beach that calls my name.....


I started out with a centerpiece with some mason jars! You just gotta love a mason jar! I actually bought this at AC MOORE and you can use it for so many different things. It came with chalkboard tags to use if you wanted too. Just a few seashells and some flowers and I was good to go. 


I love these plates I bought from Walmart. They are so summery looking. Found the cute place mats at the Dollar Tree. 


I couldn't believe I found the color of blue I was looking for with the stainless steel flatware at Walgreen's.
 


And it was on SALE!!!! My kind of purchase!


It didn't take me long to come up with a simple tablescape with the pretty blues, greens and yellows.


And these goblets will always be my favorite to use.


I had to hunt for them but finally found my beach theme salt and pepper shakers.


A couple of cute little candle holders I wrapped in jute last year added to my beach theme nicely.


Decided to use my little boat to house my freshly picked tomatoes for the day.


And what beach trip is complete without some Debbie cakes right?


Rounded up my coffee can that I covered with paper and jute and decided to put some of my favorite utensils in. 




Cute little candle holders works great to hold my coffee condiments.

A little display of seashells adorn my counter top. 




A small vignette shows off a little beach theme. 




And if you can't truly smell the ocean then why not have a candle that smells like the Ocean? 


This sweet little grandgirl painted a picture with a fish which I was excited about since I had a beach theme going. 




Her finished product didn't get to stay at Nana's house though. She liked it so good she decided to carry it home. LOL! 


Yep, simple but I love it! 


This is my sweet friend and sister in Christ Alisa. This was her first round of chemo and I would like to ask you if you would take just a minute to say a prayer for my friend. She is one strong lady in the Lord and we are praying for great and mighty things to be accomplished through her that will make a difference for eternity. 



And on one of my yard sale expeditions I came across this Bible Study, Gideon, by Priscilla Shirer. I have taught this Bible Study and it's excellent. The book had not been used though the outside cover was worn somewhat. But I snatched it up in hopes to give it to someone that would enjoy it.


In honor of my friend Alisa I would like to give this book to one lucky and blessed gal. There is no hoops to jump through here. Just simply comment on the blog and your name will go into a drawing. Winner announced next week.

I am joining Jemma this week for Thoughts of Home.

  23. Thank you my friend for your friendship, love, support, and I know many prayers on my behalf. They mean more than I can express. Have had a couple of bad nights of my body adjusting to the chemo ... So knowing that I have you and these precious ladies praying for me is SUCH an encouragement ... And I LOVE when my Lord gives a word to hang on to at just the moment it's so desperately needed ... Yesterday just when I was starting to have some issues Stephen and I sat down to do our Bible study and the scripture that was at the top of the opening page of Bible Gateway was 2 Timothy 2:3 ► Thou therefore endure suffering, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ....He has not promised to take away the pain .... but I'm so thankful that He HAS promised He's there and that He will bring good out of it in the end. How I TREASURE your sweet friendship and oh how every encouragement you send BLESSES MY sometime feeble heart! Love the Beach theme .. I have told my children that when we are DONE with this .. I want to all get together at a BIG BEACH HOUSE on the Gulf and CELEBRATE ... I love you my friend .. Alisa Dixon
