St. Patrick’s Day Mantel 2015

Since Easter is only a short time after St. Patrick’s Day I wanted a simple mantel that with a few quick changes it will turn into an Easter Mantel.

Since spring is just around the corner the color I’m concentrating on is green.

St. Patrick's Day Mantel 2

It is very simple this year just a baguette basket, a St. Patrick’s Day bunting. boxwood balls, wreaths, and topiaries

St. Patrick's Day Mantel 1

This bunting was a clearance item from Pottery Barn after St. Patrick’s Day last year.

Their burlap St. Patrick’s Day banner was also on sale (it is no longer available) so I bought it too.  It is now hanging on my front door.

 I love the simplicity of this mantel.

Baguette Basket

The baguette basket is another great purchase I made from Cat at Sunday Brocantes.


This shamrock graced my St. Patrick’s Day Mantel last year.


The ivy plant with the leprechaun was on the coffee table but my granddaughter is afraid of him so I moved him to the top of the cabinet.


Yeah, he might be a little scary.

Are you ready to see what I found this week? This Burpee seed tray and the pretty green bowl really got me to thinking about spring. When I picked up this E.O. Brody bowl made in Cleveland, Ohio I didn’t realize that it was vintage.  It has a pretty scalloped top and lovely green color.  I later […]

What Would You Call This Thrift Store Find? #2


Helping me figure out what I found at the thrift store is going to be a recurring but unscheduled series.  I’ll ask for help when I buy something I want even though I don’t know what it is.  Sounds crazy I know, but fun never the less. So what do you think they are? The cashier […]

Well my luck was a bit better this week at the thrift stores. So I hope things are picking up in the thrifting game. When I spied the this rooster platter my mind said “that rooster looks familiar but the color and banding is all wrong”.  I have a platter with the same rooster that I bought […]
