It was time to give the mantle a fresh look just in time for Mother’s Day. A little something new, a little something different. I am actually just biding my time till I can properly decorate it for summer and all our patriotic holidays (old flags, lots of sunflowers and roses…,) and with Easter having been so early this year (thank goodness that won’t happen again for at least another 100 years) and all those goodies long since put away, my mantle was in need of something new. Or rather – as is often the case with me- something old, used in a new way.
Due to the recent garage sale purge at our house, I had unearthed this little collection of vintage outdoor light globes that I had purchased at Habitat’s ReStore store. Even thought my look tends to be more cottage inspired, I love to mix in more industrial and modern touches here and there just to shake things up a bit….
So first thing I did was line all the globes up on the mantle…
Next I added some flowers, pictures and a Mother’s Day Banner
I am off to get some work done before heading to my Maw’s house for a little soirée tomorrow morning with my family… Us gals our throwing ourselves a Momma’s Day Brunch complete with pinkies up!
If I don’t make it back to the computer before, Have a Lovely Mother’s Day Weekend and may you feel yourself loved upon this earth!
