I have been so inspired by every one's beautiful homes that I am taking notice of mine and trying to "feather my nest" a little better. Our home is Spanish style, and though I am not fond of that style, it is what we ended up with and we love our location. We have updated some in the inside, but we have this whole huge wall that is brick (the same brick as on the outside of the house). Anyway, this is the mantle, and after seeing some of yours I want to make a mantle with molding and trim for a better look (we have talked about it before but it has never gotten done).
Anyway, what do you think about my display? The column with the candle is the one I got from Hobby Lobby and spray painted black. The next picture just has the fleur de lis I got from Hobby Lobby and of course, painted, instead of the pointy thingy (who knows what that is called?) Do you like the first one or second one better and do you have any suggestions? I LOVE all the bird nests with eggs and have won some from e-bay. I am thinking about putting a nest w/eggs in the greenery and maybe a birdie. I also have ordered a tassel from Susie and I think I am going to hang it on the plate holder that is holding the round iron. I had the pumpkin one hanging there (on the far right) and it looked really cute, but it is not time for that one yet...lol
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated and believe me I won't get offended.
