Shelling Out

I am heading to the Georgia seashore this weekend with shells on the brain. As Labor Day signals the end of summer on the East Coast, I am suddenly feeling not-quite-ready for the season to be over.


Lettuce coral is the centerpiece for a table set by Hable Construction founders, Susan Hable Smith and Katherine Hable Sweeny. (Image from Southern Accents).



Michele Oka Doner's collection of shells and shell books in her Miami Beach Library (From At Home with Books).


Ornithological prints framed in ocean-motif decoupage (from Decor Fall/Winter '07).

Beautiful post, BA--especially love the lettuce coral on the green table cloth in the second image. I'm not ready for the summer to be over either. Have a really great weekend.

Brilliant - lovely post - have a great weekend - nothing better than the beach. I lived in Atlanta until I was 8 and my family vacationed on St. Simons - I have the best memories and pictures from there.

I had a similar moment today. As unbearably hot as it has been, the realization that it's now time to pack it all in and prepare for fall seems quite serious.

But I can't deny my desire for knee high boots and sweaters... ;)

Now is the time to soak up that last bit of sun and sand.
