I decided to put together a natural, quiet mantle
with faded , shabby and rustic elements
and some pretty mixed in.
A little burlap on top of the mantle for a rustic base.
Stacks of old worn and faded books...
a wire cloche with a beautiful vintage religious statue inside
and my Charles Faudree-esque brass dog bookends.
This darling vintage brass cherub holding up a little tiny clock was
a recent thrift purchase.
I just love the dainty bow details on the clock
and sweet look on this little guys face
A favorite white berry garland wreath adorning the mirror
& a galvanized metal bucket of dried hydrangeas
that moved from the armoire & found a home for now on the mantle.
(have you noticed it's kinda my favorite flowers to have
around the house?)
So, a little bit rustic
a little bit natural ...
and a little bit pretty!
Just a quick post today.
It's been kind of busy here so I haven't gotten much feathering done this week.
