Summer Mantel


You all know that I don't change things all the time.
I'm more of a get it the way I like it and leave it for a long time kind of girl.
You inspire me though so this week I tweaked the mantel...just a little. :)

First, I brought out my favorite summery print that I've had for 2 or 3 years. 
I always look forward to putting this out because the colors are so pretty and make me happy. 
Besides who doesn't love the farmers market?


Then on a girlfriend trip to HomeGoods the other day I ran across the 
blue bottle with silver wire on it. I thought the wire would look neat with the galvanized
metal on the lantern.  I think it works and that pop of blue color is amazing.



Thank you for always being an inspiration to me girls.
You are decorating geniuses and I enjoy hanging with you.

I love how you pulled the colors of the Farmers Market print with your accents on either side. Just the right amount of "pretties" with some space for the eyes to rest--perfect!

The picture is beautiful and I love the jar.
Funny story:
Hubby has a book written about his high school. It stays on his chair side table so that he can look up people whose names he can't remember :^)
As soon as you walk into the room....bam......your attention just jumps to that book.
Of course, it is bright turqoisy blue.....just like your pretty jar. Best accent color in the world!! :^)
Hugs to you and blessings,
J

This is great, Stacey. I love the print and the stack of books. The first looked familiar, I have it, too.

I'm so much the same way about arranging things. Once I hit on something I like I really hesitate to change it. We are so alike!

Penny @ The Comforts of Home said...

I am like you, I get things the way I want them and kinda leave them that way. Even at this new house, a lot of things are looking VERY similar to the last house, lol.

Your summer mantel looks great. I love the bottle!

Such a lovely mantel ... the colors are so soft and summery (is that word?). And, the wired blue bottle is perfect. Love it all!

I try to avoid Home Goods! I find so many things I want, but I really don't need anything more.

I love a mantel with books!
