A Summer Mantel

Hey my friends!

I realize I’m a little late showing photos of my summer mantel, but better late than never, right??

I replaced the large IKEA hanging lanterns with the ball jars.

Added old books, lavender, and greenery.

And propped another old window in front of the fireplace.

I like that pop of color the ball jars bring to the white.

These photos were taken last week.  This week ALL of our flowers in the garden are already gone.  The heat here has just been too much to bear.

Well, thanks for stopping in to visit :)  I love having all of you to talk to, and share my love for farmhouse stuff.

It's charming Becky, I love how the white really showcases all your pretties, and the flowers in the Ball jars are a lovely touch. I've got a chippy window frame mirror, books and the same candlestick, we must have great taste!

It looks gorgeous, my friend. I love the window propped in front and the little twine garland. The ball jars look perfect on either side. Everything is perfect, as usual, in my opinion..just perfect.

Love you all...

Your summer mantle looks beautiful, Becky! How funny... I did the same thing with one of my vintage windows for a little fireplace redo I did for September Cottage of the Month. :)
Hope you have a great weekend!!

I LOVE it...why is it that a canning jar can bring such beauty?!! What is the little white flower called? My flowers are looking peaked, too...hopefully when it cools off we'll get another round before winter.
