Vintage Mermaid Inspired Buffet

Happy sweet Friday to you!! 
I decorated my buffet a simple beach and summery theme. 
I made this little garland out of some mint green crocheted squares that I got from sweet Andrea over at The Cottage Market a long while back :) I just simply sewed them on to a long piece of lace and then used small clothespins to attach the letters. So "beach" isn't permanent, and I can switch it out with another 5 letter word! 

 My inspiration came from this very sweet mermaid that I got from sweet Laurie over at Mapie Ethel. 
I just love my mermaid!! Thank you so much again! 
 -sorry for the glare on the blue shelf-

 A vintage tin on some old books.
Still have to add a few seashells around.....
 Just very simple and sweet!
I'm loving the mint and blue colors together!
 Oh yes, you didn't think my lady wasn't going to the beach to did you!?!
Well she is ready! With her "sun hat" and all! 
 {Love the vintage lamp shade as her sun hat!!} 

Thanks for all your sweet comments on my other posts! You all are the best!
