Hello, hello dear friends!
I feel like my motto should be,
"So much to do, so little time."
We are looking at maybe another week or two of total
craziness and then, with any luck,
I can finally put some of these grandiose ideas/projects
that I've been dreaming up into action.
Why is it that I am always full of ideas when
I don't have the time to try any of them?
Anyway, enough of the complaining,
let's take a look at the summer mantel.
My plan was light, bright & simple.
Aqua, lime green & white.
I had everything you see here except for the
spools of green baker's twine.
I found them at Hobby Lobby...they're so cute!
I bought this wooden window thing a few years back while
we were on vacation in the Lake George area.
I have no idea what its former life was,
but someone was smart enough to repurpose it with these burlap
pockets. It was filled with red geraniums when I bought it
and it was love at first sight!
A little something for interest at the bottom of the fireplace.
Light, bright & simple....
