Lately, it seems as though I have been decorating my mantel in a more simplistic fashion
and for the most part, shopping the house keeping in mind that less is more.
I have had these topiaries for many years and they tend to move around the house often.
Today they have found their way to the Great Room mantel along with a new addition.
So today, I present my Simple Winter Mantel.
The new addition? . . . A sweet white pitcher that was a birthday gift from a friend.
I love the wheat design on the pitcher. The pitcher was filled with
white Stock flowers from . . . you guessed it . . . Trader Joe’s.
I kept the stems tall as I wanted it to fill up as much space against the
bread boards as possible.
For quite a while now, the bread boards and the tall candlesticks have pretty much
been a staple/constant on the mantel.
The topiaries in the blue and white containers were moved from the French buffet
in the foyer, to the mantel.
Because the topiaries were taken from the foyer to the mantel,
this is causing a domino effect thus the need to re-style the French buffet.
The game of “domino” is so much fun!
Our temperatures here are climbing and the snow is melting.
It will be warm enough to drag out the hose and wash the cars
to remove all the “snow dirt” and salt from the roads.
I want to thank you all again for all of the well wishes for my mom.
She is recovering well and hopefully by the time this post is published she will be home
recuperating and going to physical therapy. She is in good spirits and charming all of
the medical personnel who are taking care of her.
My mom had eye surgery several years ago and the eye clinic
loved her so much that they put her smiling face on their website!
She has that gift of making people smile!
Have a most beautiful day!!!
