Summer Mantle

Now we’ve packed up all the deckies the house looks so bland & boring!!!! I know cream is the trend but I’ve never really been into following trends. I like colour.

So I decided to start with the mantlepiece. I’ve never had one before & I think it might be fun to decorate it to reflect the seasons & celebrations through the year rather than just sticking something on it & forgetting about it.

So here is my Summer mantle. I’ll go in search of a runner to replace the 2 placemats. I know I have one somewhere but since we moved I’m having trouble finding things.kitten5

Camouflage socks. :-) molly&kitty Molly always sits here when Paul goes out the front door.molly&kitty2Now she has a friend to sit with her.

Molly is a birthday girl today, it’s her 2nd birthday.

No we still haven’t chosen a name for kitten.
Rowan wants Ringo or Desmond, so we’d have Molly & Desmond as in The Beatles Ob-La-Di Ob-La-da.
Paul wants Spock.
& I’m leaning towards Charlie (Darling Buds of May) or Pixie.

I vote for Desmond, I love that Beatles song!
I also love the idea of a seasonal theme to your mantle, looking forward to the coming year to see what you come up with.
