Sorted through my collection of vintage doilies and ladies hankies to create this mantle for the warmer weather. I didn’t want to make the commitment to permanently whitewash the large barn board frame, so I took white chalk and rubbed the frame to lighten it. The fourth hankie from the right – purple floral – is round! The handkerchief in the hob nail fan shaped vase is extra large.
Made these pom-pom flowers after seeing them time and again on Pinterest.
Vintage buttons in an old Ball Mason Jar. The tiny pink buttons are mother of pearl that has been dyed.
The pellet stove heats the entire house.
I have to admit, the mantle has turned into a ‘touchy feely’ attraction. Every time I go by, I rearrange folds or fluff a pom pom. Who knew it would become interactive decor.
It all looks lovely, Nita ~ guess I better get the winter holidays off my mantle before Easter Lunch!!
Remember when the kids were little and we decorated for EVERY holiday BEFORE it got here? How life changes…
