summer mantel




  1. 1

    very sweet and summery. i was thinking about doing some kind of sea shell garland across my mantle for summer :)

  2. 2

    i love your summer mantle. i love the sea glass, colors and the awesome vintage suitcases on top….

    i have resisted putting our tv over our mantle. how does that work for you? i am always afraid that the tv sits up too high….

    anyway, it looks great.

    hugs, cindy

    It looks great–clean and simple. I LOVE that shade of blue with the white and silver. Our old house had a mantle and I miss decorating it SO much!

    OK, now this I really love. I have been trying to figure out what I wanted to put as my centerpiece on my kitchen table and now I have you to thank for inspiration! Love the green glass at the bottom of the containers. Thanks!!!!

    Your stuff always looks great. I’d give the center of each arrangement a little more height – like if you could get a gangly piece of driftwood or something – that would bring your eye up a bit. Just throwing it out there – you certainly don’t need inspiration!!!

    Thank you for spelling mantle the way I spell it. Whenever I see “mantel” it drives me bonkers for some reason. :-) Looks great, as always!

    Oh how I love mercury glass! I was so excited to get a set of chunky pillar candleholders at Target after Christmas on clearance. They automatically make any space look more snazzy. It looks beautiful with the turquoise too.

    Ooh, now that is so pretty!! I love the mix of glass and silver. And the colors, too! Is that sand from a particular place?

  15. 15

    Love it…but what I really want to know is if you have a post on how you framed in your tv? We just mounted ours, but I would love to do something like that…it looks great!

    You are LITERALLY the only reason my mantle changes. Seriously, I would not change it, if I didn’t subscribe to the blog and look at your mantle. Thank you for keeping my mantle fresh and not stagnant. For forcing me to re-decorate (and dust hmmmmmm) and for giving me inspiration (sigh). Lovely, my dear, simply Lover-ly!

  25. 25

    I love it! Now will you please come and do my summer mantle, because it looks sad with five empty apothecary jars on it!

    Is there a story behind the sand and shells? I only ask, because my children LOVE to collect things from the beach. BUT most of it is stinky and even after washing ~ not worth keeping around. How do you get a beach look that is so clean!

  27. 27

    I love shells… I’ve collected them since I was a kid. You’ve arranged yours so beautifully! :)

  28. 28

    very nice job!
