New Kitchen Decor and a Giveaway

Well it happened again.

I stopped in my favorite shop . . .

should I tell you which one it was?!! . . .  you probably already know!

Yes, Always Home in Durham, N.C.

On my way home from Trader Joe’s, I thought, “I think I will just stop in for a moment.”

I am always on the lookout for some pieces that may go with my new bed.

There was nothing there that would go with the bed;

Simple Winter Mantel

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.

Simply Decorated the Mantel for Spring with Roses

I wasn’t quite sure of which direction I wanted to go in

to decorate the mantel for Spring.

I seem to like the bread boards against the backdrop of the wood and iron shutters;

therefore,  they will stay. I just wanted a touch of color and texture.

So I simply decorated the mantel for Spring with roses . . . . dried roses.

10 Minute Decorating, A Pre-Autumn Mantel

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.
