beach colors.

i am feeling so inspired by the light, airy colors of the beach today! :)
taking a vacation to this beach cottage, in Newport, Rhode Island would be amazing! :)

these vases are so pretty with all of their shades of blue. so calm and beach-y!
i found this photo here.

this is a painting by frank sinatra, called "summer wind", which comes from one of his songs...
 "like painted kites, those days and nights, they went flyin' by
the world was new beneath a blue umbrella sky
then softer than a piper man one day it called to you
i lost you, i lost you to the summer wind"
the colors remind me of the beach & the summer air! :)
i love this painting, i actually got to see it and another of his paintings at an art exhibit!

& here are some of my favorite old photos from vacations to the beach, in california.
what lovely memories! :)
