Well, lest you've think I've gone a little crazy this month, let me explain.  I usually like to incorporate a newly found treasure to the latest mantel and the vintage wire dish rack happens to be it this time around.  A funky piece of artwork.
It was sitting on my counter as you can see here, and as I wandered around looking for inspiration for this mantel, it spoke to me.  Wanting to keep it simple I lit the candles in my favorite candelabra, placed a mini white orchid in an old sap pot (I love these!) a larger colorful one for balance and my R to personalize it!
This mantel makes me happy upon entering the cottage.  So glad to be home!
