Happy White Wednesday.
I've been waiting for a nice day to take pics of the family room and mantel, but so far it's been grey, grey, grey.
I find taking pics of my mantel difficult at the best of times. I don't know if it's because it's a corner fireplace, or justy my lack of skill but the pics never seem to look as good as the real thing.
Anyway...here is my beachy summer mantel, yeah I know it's kind of early but I've had my spring mantel up for a few months now and I'm ready for a change!
I don't know if you can tell, but we painted the family room a color called silver streak by CIL paints. It's a very pale blue/grey and looks very fresh in the room.
Love this lantern that I got at homesense. I had visited PB and had an idea of what I wanted, without the PB price, and found comparables at homesense for a fraction of the cost. The shells and starfish I've had from previous years.
You may remember my post about getting this vase at GW complete with shells. I've added a few more thrift find shells along with a candle. The candle is getting shorter and my shell collection is getting larger! It is really magical at night when the lights are low and all the candles are lit up.
I found this old paddle at Aberfoyle a couple of years and have yet to find a spot for it. It's just standing up beside the fireplace for now.
Hope you've enjoyed my newly decorated mantel!
