May Mantel

How do you decorate your mantel between holidays?
If I had more time I would redecorate my mantel every week.

This is what I came up with for late Spring/after Easter/before Summer.
I decided to go with all neutrals. I feel green is a neutral, especially this time of year.

I searched my decorating stash for items that would give me the natural look I was going for.
I wrapped the vase in twine a few years ago and I love the texture it adds.

I love empty frames and being able to have them frame dimensional items.
The brown bottles are my empty medicine bottles.
Is it odd that I’m happy my medicine comes in these awesome brown bottles?

I added the mirror for height on this side of the mantel, plus I like reflective surfaces.

So, this is my in-between mantel and I think I love it.
How is your mantel decorated now?

    I love your mantel. I really like the pops of green, too. My medicine bottles are also dark brown–I use Silver Hydrosol. I’ve never thought about using them to decorate. Good idea.
