Winter/Spring Mantel…

I love looking at how homes have their mantels decorated.  I’m always inspired to have it coordinate w/ the seasons.  My inspiration is at the bottom of the post..   My dear friend Kim, is great at updating her mantel, and I love her creative ideas.  Up until recently I hadn’t found a combination that I really liked, until my latest one.  I love the crisp of white, paired w/ the little touches.

The white mirror was purchased at Hobby Lobby during a week when their mirrors were 50% off.. Score!  I want to say it was around $22.95..

The white pitcher & greenery was purchased at HomeGoods.  I added the twine from some that I had in my “craft stash”…   The letter “B” was from Hobby Lobby, painted it white, sanded a little for a slight distressed touch, and then wrapped a combination of raffia & twine.

This plate was also from Hobby Lobby (around $2), and is a lightweight material, originally gold, but spray painted white.  I drew out a 5 (for our family of 5) w/ pencil, then painted w/ black craft paint.  The little easel was also gold, and painted white w/ spray paint.  Picture frame also from HomeGoods, w/ a picture of my three, sweet monkeys..

Finally put to use three of the baby food jars I’d had saved… A quick coat of white spray paint, and then roughed up a little w/ sand paper.. More twine wrapped around to keep them together.  The cream flowers & greenery were clipped from a stemmed bunch also in my craft supplies.. 
The adorable lantern, and whimsical vase were also from HomeGoods..  This just may be the start to a new addiction.  I’ve only been to the store once (about an hour & a 1/2 away), but I loved it!

This is what started the goal for white accessories;
