Edited 4/6/11- Linking Up To The Stories Of A to Z Spring Mantel Party!
|Stumped! Yep that has been me. This is how our mantel and armoire has looked ever since holiday came down. For the first week or two I was okay with it and then I wanted to come up with a fresh new look. That is where my problem came about. For the life of me I could not think up a thing to do to these areas. I hunted high and low for the one piece to spark my creativity which was lost some where. Nothing at HobLob and nothing at HomeGoods. Then one day I remembered that there was something I had been wanting for ever!! I had been pining over it for over a year and so I finally broke down and ordered a set from FarmHousewares since I had a 10% off code.|
|Can you guess what came today!!??? Yep, I finally ordered a set of herb crates that ya see all over blogland! I was so excited!! It was exactly what I needed to get my creative juices flowing again.|
|This is what the armoire looked like this morning.|
|This is what it looks like now! Sorry for the poor lighting. The sun had moved to the side of the house so this was the best I could do.|
|I had placed the Madam Bust up there last night and The Hubster was like um no that is ugly. I agreed but now that she has company I think she looks right at home.|
|Just a frame and a birds nest. Ya gotta love ya some nests and empty frames!|
|I think this display turned out well. I am pondering on what I want to do with the inside of the doors now. They look so bare.|
|Well since I did the armoire I knew I had to move on to the mantel. This is how it has looked for awhile Bionical and all. I think he was trying to hit on our Angel but she gave him the boot!;)|
|This is what the mantel looks like now. It is simply stated I think. I decided to keep the extra mirror there that I had moved in for the holidays. Eventually I am sure it will find its way back to the bathroom.|
|I love these lil' potted plants. They have moved every where around the house.|
|Another Song Bird frame that I decided to keep for myself.|
|And as always our Christmas angel who stays out all year.|
I am now more at peace with my surroundings. It is started to feel homey again and not so sterile. I am currently working on the dresser and what not to the side of the fireplace so I will have to share that another day.
Don;t forget about my Paula Deen give away that ends this Friday! Also I finally figured out how to make my button into a real button so I have added those to my sidebar if ya want it!:)
