Hi, everyone! Hope you're having a great week!
I just realized that I've never shown you my 'summer' mantel. I kept the urns and the candle sticks that I used in the spring vignette here; I just lightened it up a bit.
My sweet hubby came in from outside one day and said "I have something for you." He had been working in the yard and gathered me a pile of sticks! We laughed because I was just as happy as if he'd brought me a bouquet of flowers! Does he know me or what?
So I immediately thought to add them to my tarnished urns. Kind of an organic arrangement...
This fantastic old barn door was sent to me from Kris at Junk Chic Cottage. I've admired hers, so she found this one for me-what a friend! :) I adore its chippy goodness!!
I've recently begun collecting Madonnas. I added some dried lavender to this one and placed her in the center of my vignette. I love her simple elegance!
A couple of Dundee Marmalade Jars and a pair of mercury glass candlesticks, and my mantel is complete!
A couple weeks ago I fell in love with this chippy egg basket.
It's now holding some of my favorite decor books on the hearth.
So there you have it-my simple summer mantel!
Have a fantastic day!
