Happy Monday! This is an exciting week! I’m headed to the Haven conference in Atlanta in a few days which is going to be so fun! In the meantime, I’m thrilled to show you my Summer mantel today. It has a cottage chic vibe with a touch of beach glamour. We’re not beach dwellers, but I like to dream about the sea sometimes.
I used two printer drawers and a shutter for the background. I love how they work together even though they are different. Maybe quirky is a good word to describe them.
I added a mercury glass candlestick on each side to give a bit of symmetry. But I still kept things interesting with varied candle heights. Did you notice?
I recently found a huge bag of white and brown balls at TJMaxx. They looked Summery, so I picked them up. The added texture and dimension that they add is just fabulous!
Back before Valentine’s Day, I got a set of three little white vases from Target’s dollar spot. I just turned them around so you can’t see the I-heart-U. The woven flower is from our honeymoon stop in Charleston, South Carolina.
I love my “Promise” Willow Tree figure. It just makes me super happy…especially since my sweet husband gave it to me a few years ago. I used three Privet House salad plates to add some extra color and punch. Plates are such a fun, versatile accessory!
The Life is Good sign is another Target dollar spot find. Isn’t it so cute?! As I began to put the finishing touches on the mantel, I decided that the printer drawers needed something in them. I called my Mom who used to have a basket of sea shells in one of her bathrooms. Sure enough she still had them and I love, love, love how they look in the drawers.
Just a couple more beauty shots for y’all!
Have you done any Summer decorating? I know a lot of people don’t decorate seasonally and that’s a-okay! I need a change every few months, so this works for me!
