Hello Dear Readers!
I created a simple Spring Mantel here at the Berry Patch House.
I thought that I would keep the blue and white pieces on the mantel
and add one more piece that actually is part of a set of three.
I had only used two of those pieces previously on the mantel.
I actually created the Spring Mantel to prepare for the Great Room Reveal
that I have been promising. Stay tuned for that this coming Thursday!
I am dreaming of decorating my mantels at the new house hopefully by Fall.
I previously had branches of Forsythia in the tall Maitland Smith vases.
The flowers are gone; however, love the texture of the branches.
You have probably noticed that I added Pussy Willows to the tall vases along with
the Forsythia branches.
I was at Trader Joe’s and they had buckets of Pussy Willows …. and into the cart they went!
They compliment the Forsythia branches nicely.
The antique books remain on the mantel for added texture and “lift”
The smaller vases contain simple stock flower stems of white and lavender,
also from Trader Joe’s. The bunches were $2.99 each, so a great bargain of $6.00 for mantel flowers.
New to the mantel is the ginger jar that goes with the other two vases.
Want to know where I got this beautiful trio? …. Always Home of course.
The pair of Maitland Smith vases also were purchased from Always Home Consignment, Durham, N.C.
I must say the room smells amazing as the stock flowers have a wonderful fragrance.
We have had so much rain these past several months,
that it has been hard to photograph not having much natural light.
And. . . unfortunately, normally, the Berry Patch House renders low to moderate natural light
in the main living area.
House update: due to the rain, the lot is slow going in being cleared.
Our lot is very dense with trees both small and very large and a very large amount of huge “boulders”
have been unearthed. We will keep some of them; however, many of them will be hauled away.
I hope to show you a photo of it cleared soon.
I wish you all a beautiful day hopefully with sunshine in the sky and in your heart!
