Beach Cabanas and Hillibillies

We are ‘smack dab’ in the middle of summer, as Grandmother Lillian would say. It’s a hot and lazy time of year; best spent at the shore.

The nearby Bay and Ocean were my inspiration for this quilted cabana-themed table runner.

Cabanas are not used in our locale, so I had to scour the internet for images. From what I gather, “cabaña” originates from Spain and means “a small cabin or tent-like structure used as a bath house, especially on a beach or by a swimming pool.”

Oh my goodness, we are such hillbillies. We just show up in our swimsuits, beach chair and blankets, drinks and snacks, sand buckets and shovels and have at it.  Buuuut, if  we did have a cabana, perhaps we wouldn’t cart home almost enough sand to fill a small sand box.  🙂
