My Summer Inspired Mantel

As you know already I’m sure, I love to decorate for all seasons and holidays!  No time is safe!  
And I’m a simple gal.  I like things clean and fresh.
So here is a little look at what I did with my mantel to welcome in the Summer season!

I just shopped around my house again.
I gathered together my glass art framed in recycled farmhouse wood, my milk bottles, coloured glass, and a few other things I had around already. 

I love glass.  Anything glass.  Glass chunks.  Milk bottles.  Glass art.
Look at the colours!  They remind me of water and freshly mowed grass!
I added a little birdhouse from Michaels that I spray painted with Rust-Oleum’s Antique White.
Then I added a little ball I wrapped in fabric (a little project to be posted later…)

Simple.
Just the way I like it!
Ok, welcome Summer.  You can stay awhile.  I don’t mind.
Thanks for stopping by!

    • Reply A Pretty Life in the Suburbs September 27, 2012 at 2:35 PM I found both glass pieces at a local farmers market. And the coloured glass 'marbles' are from Crate & Barrel.
