Mantel Changes

In my last post
I shared
a few living room changes.
You know the décor
redo's that we love to restyle after the holidays.
Recently in our family room/library,
I changed the mantel top
and wall décor.
This room is so hard to photograph.
It's either too bright or too dark.
But here goes~~

The angle pic shows better with the light.
To the top of the large
Tuscan countryside framed piece,
I added this finial painted honeysuckle bloom.
The vases to one side
bring in a bit of wintertime color.
The vase with my dried garden hydrangeas
is a gift from my son.
The framed pic in the center
is actually a card I purchased from our
anniversary stay at Hotel Del Coronado last summer.
To the left side
I have a trio of vintage school books
and topped with a wire birdcage and wood birdie inside.
The mantel runner is a gorgeous piece created by my grandmother
many years ago.
She crocheted the pretty edging
on a beautiful brown textured fabric.
It's the perfect size for the mantel top.
To each side I hung
coordinating floral prints under glass.
These were on the other end of the room,
moved them here
and love the look.

Well that's it for today.
Another room with a few changes.
Have you been doing this too?
Have a wonderful winter day.
See you next time.
