We're in the depths of January, and the last thing I want to think about is winter. (Luckily, the weather is cooperating, this week at least.) What I want to think about is summer, and what is more summer than the beach?

Or we can put up some beachy art on our walls.

Summer will be here before we know it.  

This post was contributed by Liz from Zizi Rho Designs who is not necessarily looking forward to the summer, but who just couldn't do a seasonal theme that goes with the current season.
