After seeing some beautiful mantel change ups for the upcoming summer, I decided I had to get in on the fun.
(You know how I love to move stuff around and “shop” from around my house)
I decided to move my gorgeous blue green Goodwill wine bottles from their home on my bench and let them be my focal point on the mantel itself.
I could have stopped with the bottles for pure simplicity, but I am a layering kind of girl so of course I had to layer.
Wait a minute…I have to go back a step.
I want to make sure you notice my great old shutter. It was black and in my attic until last night when the power went out and I got motivated to move things around. Yep, I painted by candle light.
I hung some twine on it and then pinned up some French book pages I had bought. I have no idea what they say but I know one says a word that looks like romance…hmmm. I just hope they are all nice.
I love little details like that little vintage key hanging from that book page.
This is my brother and me. He’s one of my heroes.
My sweet husband and his twin brother sit beside a pair of hubby’s little baby shoes. I figured they stayed untied most of the time anyway so I decided to keep them that way. I love them and all of there little scuff marks.
I love this new summer look.
So fresh, so airy.
Do you change your mantel up for the seasons?
I used to not be able to, but now that I use a lot of white, I am able to be so much more versatile and I love it.
