Mantel for Spring - I went from this and added whites


Before/After Easter time mantel.  Took all the bunnies away, so sad.


I'm thinking kind of dark and random.


Hummm... let's add some whites and creams.
Corbels from flea market get added.



GW vase, bought a while ago $1.99, had the ceramic blue balls.


The "toothpick holder" swan, a gift for registering my wedding china with Lenox.  29 years old is she. (Yoda talk)


Cream and white colored creamers.  Tall guy from Marshall's clearance $3.99, already had it in a drawer, dusted it off.  The ironstone creamer, Round Top flea market purchase a few weekends ago, $8.00.  The short one on the left my original everyday china, Johnson Brothers creamer. IE : swan gift.



Iron fairy to wish us a great spring and summer!
I think I'll keep it this way for a while.



I'm linking with Faded Charm Cottage and Jenny Matlock's M party (for mantel) and with Cindy at Show and Tell Friday.  Funky Junk Interiors
