Florida sunshine and vintage finds!

It's gorgeous here in Florida right now! The weather is perfect and I've been spending time at the pool every day! It's nice to get a little sun after such a long, cold winter!

I also love spending time in the lanai...


I see a lot of Florida knick knacks at the thrift store....


these I couldn't pass up!


They  are a cute little set of coasters...with a flamingo and palm trees!

Add an alligator and you have the perfect decor! heehee!


Hope you are enjoying nice weather!


We are driving to the coast today to spend some time on the beach!

Enjoy your day!


Would you like some ice tea with lemon?

Cute coaster! I love vintage Florida. I wish is would have remained like it was in the 60's.

In the 70's here today and sunny.

I like the coasters! They remind me of time spent in Florida in the 60's and early 70s when my grandparents lived down there. Fun times!

Enjoy your day at the beach! It is sunny and heading to 72 here today. :0)

Your home looks so nice and inviting, Diane! I love those vintage coasters - they are so cool! I'm coming down to Florida a week from Friday and can't wait. I hope the weather stays nice...really need to see some sunshine! :o)

Have a wonderful day at the beach!

I'm glad..., finally the weather is warming up here in the North East too!! Not warm enough for ice tea though, haha. Enjoy!!

It was pounding rain just a few minutes ago. Storms all over the area. But it brings with it a cool breeze that is appreciated. You guys have fun!

Ahhh Trade you for hot is wayyy too cool here to be going to any coast...Besides we are on top of a peninsula and it is quite cool. The upside of that is my sheets dry within 10 minutes on the line lol...great pics and I love the knot fairy...that is one book I would not mind reading...

Hope you enjoyed your drive! I have yet to go to the beach this summer...

Cute vintage things you found. The alligator is the icing on the cake :-). We've had quite a bit of rain here in NC, but today was sunny and warm (but not too warm).
Thanks for the ice tea. It hit the spot.

Hi Diane,
Love the coasters. They look so summery and perfect for your lanai.
Your days sounds simply perfect. It is nice to warm up in the sunshine after our long cold winter this year. We are actually getting very hot again. 92 predicted for Friday. Could be a pool day!!

Thank you for stopping by and your sweet comments. It is always great to see you.

Hugs, Celestina Marie

that iced tea looks so refreshing; my drink of choice in the summer!

Jacqueline said...

Florida take me away to where the palm tree's blow in the breeze and iced tea is served at Diane's. What a picture perfect place to live and breathe!
Tee hee...I once had that same little table as you. It made me smile to see it again. Imagine that, way up here in the far corner of the USA. Opposite corners of the USA attract!

Looks as if you are having lots and lots of fun! The coasters are so cute!
Have a great time at the beach.
I am catching up before I leave on vacation.

That tea looks very good right about now and I love the coasters.
I hope to go to a few sales tomorrow morning.

Hi Diane,

Everything sounds lovely, ice tea and swimming at the pool and walking along the beach. The coaster and shells are lovely.
Enjoy your Summer days

I am so jealous. We have had so much wet cold weather that I am almost to the point of asking my dear husband to move back to Tombstone, AZ. No, I'm not that desperate yet! My poor aching bones really hates this rainy wet weather, but I love the green and I hate hot dry weather like AZ style. I just want to see the sunshine.
I love your goodies, shells the and coasters are great. Ice tea? Man you are really killing me. I am still drinking hot chocolate. heheh
I emailed you something I saw that reminded me of you.
