Sharing a Bit of My Home ~ Part 1

Pin It
On this blog I usually share
show pics,
store pics,
 workshop pics,
 you get the idea.  It is not a lot of personal stuff.  Anyway, I thought I would dedicate a few posts to my home.  I think it is important for you to "see" a bit of my personal space. 

I have shared pics of my mantle before, it is one of the only places that I can decorate, because I don't have a lot of wall space.  This 97 year old house is instead "blessed" with many windows and doorways.

This is how my mantle looked in the winter in early evening. 
We love this big old fireplace.

This is the mantle last summer.
(Yeah it hasn't been changed in a while.)

This is how it looked the other day with the morning sun streaming through the windows.
(No fires right now, just a coal bucket full of pinecones.)

Simple, just the way I like it,
but it has been a while since there was any change.


I changed things up a bit.

I used the same pitchers.  And candle.

And salvage architectural pieces.

But I added the big graprevine wreath and preserved boxwoods. 
I LOVE the boxwoods!

My favorite pic, one more time.
See the antique bayonet?  It makes a great conversational piece....

Coming up next, my Poppy room
