It’s kind of ironic that I waited until back-to-school time to do my summer mantel, but that’s what happened. We enjoyed my Patriotic Mantel most of June and all of July but a change was needed for August.
I pulled out three fabric covered panels that I made several years ago out of the drapes that were hanging in our living room when Mr. SP bought our house. It’s an old Williamsburg print and I’d buy it today if it were available. To make this fabric look more like summer than fall, I decided to use blue on my mantel to pull out the blue in the fabric.
The pot to the left is McCoy and was a gift from my mom. The piece in the middle belonged to my grandmother. She really liked this piece and I’m glad I inherited it. The candlestick was a long ago gift from my dad to my mom.
Now I’m all set until it’s time to do a fall mantel.
Today is my first day back at school and our students return on August 14. If you are doing something fun, think about me while I’m sitting through meeting after meeting.
