From the title of this post, you may get the idea that I had a lovely, put-together early-Summer mantle, and am just changing it up mid-season for the fun of it. Don’t be fooled-I threw up some votives and a wreath a few months ago and haven’t touched it since. Maybe I should call this post the better-late-than-never Summer mantle.
Anyway…my inspiration for this mantle came from this bhg image…

I loved the tight color palete and overall configuration.
The fern print is part of a set that I’ve had forever. They’ve been in pretty much every corner of my home.
The bowl was made by very talented father-in-law…he’s an amazing woodworker, I’ll have to share with you all one day the toys he’s made for Drew over the years.
The blue pottery piece was a gift from my sweet sister, you can find the tutorial for the felt votive holders here, and the tile was a find from a local salvadge yard.
There you have it! The probably-won’t-get-touched-again-till-Christmas mantle. Good thing I like it:)Pin It
