Inspiration can strike any place, anytime when you least expect it. In this instance – it’s all about my casual lake summer mantel decor.
Now that I live out in lake country, I don’t have the conveniences of shopping my favorite stores. When I have an opportunity to visit my favorite store HomeGoods, I make the most of it. The closest HomeGoods is approximately 1 ½ hours drive from my house. It’s not like I go crazy and spend hundreds of dollars or anything like that. I just love the value and variety that their stores offer. Anyway, on a recent trip a couple of months ago I spotted a large, beautiful oil painting of rowboats on a lake for just $39.00. I wasn’t even looking for a new painting, but this one just spoke to me. Hence, my inspiration for casual lake summer mantel decor. Also, a big thank you to our friend Amy of My Life From Home. Thanks to her you will get to see other fabulous summer mantel decor today at the end of this post!
