Well, since I got my Christmas stuff down a week ago the mantle (aka speaker shelf) has been sitting bare. But that gave me a little time to figure out what I want to do with it.
I knew I wanted it “wintery” and to me that means some cool blues and browns! So here we go. This is what I came up with!
So here is what we have going on here. On the right, I have a blue grey glass vase I got on clearance from Target it the back. Then I have a brown metallic bowl with a couple grapevine balls to add a little texture. In the front is part of a tea set I bought when I was over in China. Just love the blue floral pattern on it! I knew when I saw it in a market in Hong Kong – I had to have it!!
On the left side, I have another of the Target vases and my black lantern. I put my little clock in the front since it is the new year and that always makes me think about “time”! I LOVE those vases!! They are so pretty!
So here are a few more shots!
So there you go! I like the light blue grey touches! Now this has me thinking I might want some new throw pillows to match!
So what do you think? I hope you like it! Have you updated your mantel? If so – you should hop over to Beth’s and join her Mantel Party!
