Happy Wednesday, Friends! Recently I received the cutest gift from my thoughtful friend, Carly. She gave it to me at our Bible study one evening and I could hardly wait to play with it! The following morning, this playful summer mantel came together almost effortlessly...
Actually, the gift included three items...
...of course I love them all! Isn't it meaningful when a friend knows you so well? The shovel canvas and burlap garden themed signs couldn't be more perfect with the picket fence I crafted from yard sale salvage back in the spring. After placing the tall shovel in the center, I used a thumb tack to secure each mini sign in place on the fence.
Next, I added some bottle vases of purple cone flower (Echinacea), a yard sale watering can and Bunny Foo-Foo, also from a yard sale and nick-named by Ginger Grand.
On the other side, a birdie bud vase, some herbs and a few gorgeous heirloom seed packets I bought on clearance and tucked away. Let's be honest, I'm not likely to plant turnips or mustard greens but how divine are those graphics--did I buy them just for the pretty pictures? Guilty as charged!
Here's a view of the full mantel:
Remember to drop by tomorrow for the latest Vintage Charm party!
