A simple pre-autumn mantel was on the agenda
when I returned from my Florida trip to visit my mom and sister.
I knew I wanted something simple that I can later tweak to add autumn decor.
I guess you can say this is my late summer, pre-autumn mantelscape.
I took my inspiration (again) from the book Patina Farm.
I do not have that many fabulous bread boards as was on that mantel (yet)
however, these three were all I needed to get the look and leave room
for the future autumn decor.
The two large bread boards were acquired from the High Point Market
and the small one was a gift from my friend Kris of Junk Chic Cottage.
I originally had two items flanking the tall candlesticks;
however, when I took a step back I eliminated them. Just wanted to keep it simple.
Including the time it took to remove the items from the mantel
and add the bread board vignette, it took about 10 minutes.
Are you beginning to plan on how you will decorate for Fall?
I know it is still August, but one can dream of the cooler days of Fall.
Have a most beautiful day!!
