A Beachy May Mantel
 
 
An unlikely bit of inspiration for this May Mantel would be my newly acquired Danforth Anchor complete with its original chain!  I love the way it looks leaning on the picture of the old wooden boat.  The patina, texture and shape is so interesting and when it comes down from the mantel, it will look great in the garden or perhaps to hold my little dinghy steady....when I get one that is!
