I'm pretty happy with our mantle as it sits right now and can't wait to have something to change over the seasons and holidays.
From left to right:
-Reader's Digest Best Loved Books collection- $6.00 for 12 books (the missing book is stashed on top of Steven's nightstand). I'd love to find the rest of the books so we have a complete set.
-Pair of framed vintage cross-stitch victorian silhouettes-a gift from my Aunt Pam who inherited them from my Grandmother and Grandaddy. We'd like to hope that they were made in the family, but no one knows for certain.
-Chalkboard- created at home from lumber pieces and paint.
-Persimmon canisters-IKEA! For about $12.00 (I think) and full of sticks from the backyard.
-Robin's egg bunny- free from a friend trying to get rid of some things. I gave him a new coat of spray paint.
My new style tastes have taken over our whole house. I think it began in the kitchen and just sort of spilled over. I'm putting color wherever I can, dreaming about the perfect afghan granny square blanket, wishing I could cross-stitch, and becoming more and more "granny-chic".
