It was fun creating a simple early fall mantel today. Since the remodel began nearly five months ago creativity, of any kind, has been non-existenat. I’ve missed it so much! It felt stagnating not to be able to pull together a vignette or two.
It started with an oil painting I found last year, $10. The oil painting rested on the mantel most of last summer. Then one day I noticed it was actually a fall scene? I do that sometimes…its like seeing what I want instead of what it is, funny.
Another pumpkin I just finished, the one on the left, which I can’t figure out if I like it or not. Unusual colors for a pumpkin don’t ya think?
The mason jars have Limelight Hydrangea tucked inside. I’m so please with this Hydrangea, with only being two years old, providing abundant blooms this summer.
In fall the blooms take on a pink hue but are lime colors throughout summer. The farmers market marked down their pumpkins and I scored the large white pumpkins for $3.
In this photo you can see the pink on the hydrangea petals and from this angle I like how the new pumpkin looks. The photo invokes a serene feel which is rather pleasant at the moment.
Just before I started to decorate our early fall mantel the orange pumpkin was just finished. Again I’ll mention that each year I save my pumpkins for crafts.
The orange pumpkins stem is a twig from the yard.
The hydrangeas add so much to the vignette and softness to.
Its time to remove the vintage music sheets but I can’t figure out what I want to do?
I wish I could say the bathroom plumbing is going smoothly, but I can’t. I don’t know what I’ve done to deserve this?
