Mantels! I love them! It's probably my very favorite spot in the house to play around with. It's easy (only one shelf) and even if I don't change anything else at all - it makes the whole room seem fresh.
But for me, even one shelf can get overwhelming if its February and I still have Christmas stuff on it. Not that that ever happens more than once a year:) But I solved that by decorating with red and white on the mantle . .. then all I need to do is remove the reindeer or whatever other glittery thing I had for Christmas and add a heart for Valentines day. Done.:)
Back to summer mantels. I do the same thing when its spring. Decorate for spring but also for summer so I can leave it from March - September! this one was easy . . a newish print in a summer color that I had saved from the photo shoot.
my Grandmas's old dutch bibles, yellow and textured candles that I never light 1. because they don't smell and 2. because I can use them longer that way and some fake daffodils in a cute little pot.
and that's it:) - I am so glad I did this is April this year because as soon as summer hits . . I want to be here . . .
or here . . .
