I haven’t changed out my mantle in awhile and was feeling the need for something colorful in the family room. So I decided on these sweet viola’s that adorned purples and yellows. Not sure how to display them, I decided to place them inside this wooden gardening tote.!
When I changed things out on the mantle, I try to just use things from around the house that I already have! Which has an effect on other rooms where I borrow from as well – but love switching pieces around so they feel new again! I decided to put this mirror above the mantle that has been living in the guest suite…it’s an old chippy frame that has hosted a gorgeous pearl rosary ~ I think they belong together! I love the way the rosary looks hanging on this scratched up mirror, don’t you?
Inside the mantle sits this night stand. I shared it with you the last time I changed out my mantle décor ~ I’m still enjoying this piece between the two leather chairs! Despite some comments I received about my little lamp, I am still loving the look of it here too. I snipped some English Blue Bell flowers to match the color in the violas and switched out the books that were on the bottom shelf.
Whenever I can find these milk glass vases at garage sales, I pick them up. Since they are spread in different parts of the house, I had no idea that I had so many! They look pretty on each side of this rustic garden tote.
Hope you have a fabulous week! Much love to you ~ xoox, tracie
