Holiday colored lobster float

This little holiday colored lobster float was just too cute to leave at the flea market.


Red and Green colored holiday decorations have pretty much been banished from the living room and dining rooms so this is just perfect for outside!

Great idea! I've banned Christmas red from Heaven's Walk for many years. Not it's all about white, and shades of green with a sprinkling of silver. So soothing, chic, and sophisticated!

I can't believe we're talking about Christmas already.....!!!! lol!

Hi Rita,
I love each and every post you write, as well as your great treasured finds. Just love the Lobster float! I too would snag that one up. It is so you and wish I lived as close to water as you do.

I am excited to post Holiday creations as soon as we get past Pumpkin season :)

I love it!
It's the perfect Coastal Christmas touch!
It seems a lot of us have banned green and red inside :)
I'm actually getting excited to decorate for Christmas this year. I guess it's because our son is coming home. I've been really lazy about decorating the past couple of years so I'm thinking about going all out!!!!
