The first thing I did was make a wreath to hang on the mirror above the mantel. I wanted something different. So I went to my 'stash of stuff', and this is the result.
I used a green work wreath and added aqua mesh, white ribbon, and pink geraniums. I kept the shutters on the mantel, added the blue sewing drawer, a small angel bust, and a faux plant.
I liked it, BUT, decided it might be too "Springy" for the season between winter and spring. So I changed it. I removed the bright colors, and used the burlap wreath I made a long time ago. I added neutral colored objects to the mantel.
Nice neutral vignettes. Y'all know I need a pop of color!!
My husband and I went out for lunch and stopped off at a favorite consignment shop where I found this Studio 56 plate for $3.99. Brought it home for the mantel.
Better in my opinion.
I did some work to the wreath. The burlap had become a bit droopy since it was first made, so I added some wired burlap ribbon around the wreath, and made a sash bow for it to liven it up a little.
My Willow Tree collection.
Bust, book I made, and faux grass.
The final product. I think it will work just fine until I bring out the Spring!!
Where is the new wreath you ask?
On the front door for now!
Oh, and what else did I find at the consignment shop?
This sweet "Fresh Linens" sign, now hanging on my linen closet door!!
So how are you decorating right now?
