Mantle Love

Now the lounge is complete, the mantle piece is new. A large chunky piece of wood, I really like it. It is also clear of clutter and we can change and add things to it easily. 

Here are some things from our mantle of the last few weeks.  

 

Instead of a #shelfie this is #mantlelove

 

The items that are constant on the mantle are 3 plants in glasses that I bought in Copenhagen.

Other things on the mantle come and go...

I love this sprouted conker, when it gets a bit larger we will take it somewhere and plant it.

The large vintage glass bottles are a new item in the house, we found them at a local market.

The Spanish bluebells are in our garden, I keep pulling them out as I prefer the English bluebells, but a few in the house did look pretty.

Since the girl had broken her leg, walks and trips out are down to a minimum. My husband took the boy out for a walk and came back with this posy for me that he made, how lovely! 

 

And they are my #mantlelove pieces.
