beach memories.

I saw this idea in the Southern Living at Home catalog several years ago.
I love these candle holders (I have two.) because they have so much versatility.
I have used them as vases, candleholders, and now as a picture frame.

 I added a little craft sand from Wal-mart.
Then I added a 4x6 picture of Rowan in sepia tone that I printed
at CVS for 19 cents.
I added some seashells and sand dollars we found 
while we were at the beach.
I had some leftover jute from Rowan's party that
I tied around the base.
And there you have it. A very quick and easy
reminder of our beach memories.

And I never want to forget my sweet
boy crawling around on the beach, splashing in the saltwater,
and eating handfuls of sand.

I am linking up to Tatertots and Jello Weekend Wrap Up Party.

Join us Saturdays for the weekend wrap up party!
