Since spring is on her way, I needed to get my mantel de-cluttered, clear and ready for whatever might blow our way! This quick and very simple layout feels so good right now. March is when I finally get over how empty the house feels after Christmas decorations are gone and really embrace the clean and crisp of spring and summer.
On the right side, I have: a candle from TJ Maxx wrapped in some jute cording from Hobby Lobby, a bowl from TJ Maxx with faux pears from Target and a super old vase I spray painted white. It used to be black with white lines. I love the lightness of it now!
I really had to control myself and make a conscious effort to keep this clean and simple. It can feel weird not to have the whole ledge filled with ‘stuff’ but I think this time of the year is all about less. Less is definitely more in this case!
I have plans for the backs of the bookcases as well as the books…stay tuned for an update!
