Mantel Makeover

I was getting really tired of looking at the cables below the tv that is over our mantel. I was also tired of the same look it has had for the past,oh I don’t know…forever. I decided to do something about it.

See where the plant is? I used to have a vase filled with marbles there. I put the marbles that were in the vase into smaller jars. Old milk bottles, actually.

It has helped to hide the cables. On either side of the milk bottles I put a saucer  and cup from the Spode Blue Willow collection. Doesn’t that sound sophisticated? I found them at flea markets.

My Aunt Bunny owned a cabin in the North Georgia mountains. She was gracious enough to allow us to use it. After a stay I just had to say “thank you” so I bought her this blue and white bunny. My cousins were sweet to let me have it back, to remember her by, after she passed away. I smile every time I look at it. I do miss Aunt Bunny.

The other side of the mantel has these blue candles in my .50 cent candle holder.

I love the way I can change the look and feel of a room by simply changing a few things around. These small change has inspired me to start making changes in other places around the house. Humm…what can I do in my bedroom? I think I got it! I’ll share soon.

Hearing from you makes my day!
