June Mantel of the Month



This June mantel has been decorated with a Birthday Girl in mind!  ME!   Using my favorite colors, flowers and of course shells, it all came together quite naturally.  I found the vintage turquoise and pink rose tablecloth and chippy pink shuttered door at Brimfield, so that was a perfect place to begin.   The Christy Repasy rose painting, pink door and mirror layer nicely and the fresh roses were a must since they are June's flower.   Too bad my Eden roses aren't in bloom yet...oh well, these are such a pretty color.  I love the funky bead and shell bottle stopper in the Roseanna milky 'beach glass' bottles!   See the little sachet that hangs from the tall one?  It states 'just be you'!  Okay, that's when I reached for the Mermaid Tiara and placed it high on a pedestal nestled in seashell potpourri with a sandcastle tag tucked in.  For fun I'll wear the tiara on my birthday.  Surely I can get away with it on that one day!  Need I be reminded to 'just be me' and have an excuse to wear a Mermaid tiara?   It's summer and anything goes!
