The fabulous Barb of Grits and Glamour is hosting an Egg-xellent Spring Mantlescape Party, and of course I want to play. I don't have a mantle, but I do have a shelf that I play with, so this is going to be my mantle for today.
I also want to thank her for my new header design. She is so talented and is offering a free header as a giveaway. She is also accepting orders for custom designs. You will love working with her, she is so talented and has such a fabulous design sense, and her rates are very reasonable. I love my new header.
This wall is in my breakfast area and I have it filled to the brim with the shelf, plates and my wonderful painting of Thanksgiving with the Old man praying.
I found this shelf at a consignment store many years ago and it is quite massive. It measures a little over 6 ft. long and is 18" high. I have always loved the carving, moldings and hooks. It is a fun piece to decorate and play with.
I tied the shelf in with the plates on the wall by also placing one on the shelf. A white duck tureen, rooster and bee skeep are on this end of the shelf.
Fruite, artichoke and cow plate add a little color
And of course you have to have a colorful rooster.
Great shelf for this wall and so fun to play with.
Ok, you really need to go by and see all the fabulous Mantels at
Barb's Egg-xellent Spring Mantlescape Party. I can't wait to see them all.
