Beautiful Lanterns at the Beach

I have always loved lanterns! All different kinds of lanterns but beach ones are my favorite. I went on-line to see if I could find some really nice choices of lanterns to share with you. Here they are:

This black lantern is gorgeous and makes the starfish and white candles stand out all the more. Just gorgeous. This photo is from Pottery Barn. I love there things!

These lanterns are from Pottery Barn too. I love how they displayed the lanterns, seaglass and shells on a porch railing at the Beach! Just wonderful!

This lantern has a modern flair I think.

I love this weathered lantern with the white starfish on each pane of glass. Just awesome!

These white metal lanterns with the little starfish placed around a vase is just a fabulous centerpiece. What a wonderful idea.

Just sharing these lanterns with all of you make me want to set up my black metal Pottery Barn lanterns in a little beachy vignette! I hope I have inspired some of you too!

I have my two black lanterns on my back porch steps. So when we are out back at night, they light the steps up.

Love the lanterns you have shown.

I have a black lantern on my patio table. Yes, these photos inspired me to do something interesting with it. Thanks.

So many beautiful lanterns. I have one out front and a few in the back yard. I love how they look at night.

I have several lanterns from IKEA - you've made me realize I need to get out there - after I cover myself in mosquito repellent - and do something creative on the front porch this evening!

Hope all is well with your dear daughter and the baby - know you must have enjoyed the hospital tour and are getting excited about the big day!

Belated Happy B'day to John - he sounds like a keeper, ha! ha!

I've forwarded you the recent lavender farm info - you can get on the mailing list and then know when they have celebration days etc. Let me know if you don't get it dear - I'll resend.

Hugs - Mary

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
