I must admit…since the holidays I have had a hard time getting motivated or finding inspiration to do anything. I guess it’s the after-glow of the party that I didn’t want to end. The other night I was watching television and my fireplace mantel kept grabbing my attention. It was so sad looking – because it had been in this state since Christmas was put away:
The mantlel looked so barren that I couldn’t decide what should go on it.
I was sure I wanted to do something new and seasonal with the mantel but didn’t really know where to begin. During TV commercials I would get up and collect a couple of things that I love until I had a good collection. I wanted elements of green, vintage metal and wood.
I started putting items into place until I was satisfied with the overall look.
The tarnished loving cup is a favorite of mine and I especially like the moss ball on top. The sticks were collected over time from our yard.
