With more snow on the way, I’m longing for sunshine and the beach. Bet you are, too, right? Well, before I left Ischia, Italy, where it’s cold and rainy this time of year, as well, I came across a beach-side house decorated with seashells. The shells don’t just cover the outside of the home, they also are put together to form some beachy scenes. Can you see the fish, sun, and sea horse? The entire house was covered in stones and shells. They had even made door mats out of the shells for in front of each entrance. It must have taken lots of patience to complete this project. It seems worth it though. A home like this sure would have you feeling like you are smack in the middle of summer no matter what the weather is doing.
This is the photo on the About.com Newlyweds site today. But it’s also the view I have from my office window. That nest and those birds have inspired me to better prepare for growing a family. I’m hoping it has the same influence on my readers. Check out what I told them about saving money and getting their own nest in tip top shape in today’s blog.
