Hi.

I write about repurposing old things into new, home decor and sometimes stray into whimsy.

Our Summer Mantle (and the joy of shopping my house)

Armed with industrial-sized Swiffer pads, I finally swept away Spring (and an embarrassing amount of dust-please avert your eyes..)  from my mantle in time to put up my Summer paraphernalia which I store very carefully in a busted cardboard box (I'm a neat-freak, people).  Shopping my own house for a few little extras, here's what I came up with:  

 

I have pictures I rotate according to the Seasons;  family pictures I haven't had the opportunity to frame.  This year I had a eureka moment and actually used the bottles I've been collecting to display them by twisting a piece of floral wire around the neck of the bottle and around a pencil to make a little loop.  Voila!  A lovely picture holder...

 

 

 

I couldn't resist putting together one last thing for my sunroom..(Gorilla Glue, a thrift store plate and one of my holiday candle sticks...)

 

 

Summer is now officially inaugurated in our household..in the meantime, I will stock up on Swiffer wipes for when its time to usher in Fall...

Come see all of the wonderful inspiration out there in the blogosphere...
