Every season, I challenge myself to be original, hopefully bringing something a little different than what's out there, while at the same time keep those elements that say 'that is a Craftberry Bush mantel.' I hope I have accomplished it.
I have been collecting vintage tea cups and with the help of my sweet mother in law, have been able to collect some very sweet ones. I decided to incorporate some of them onto the mantel by hanging them on the wall as part of the display.
I shared a flower arrangement using this birdcage before and decided to use the same idea, but tone it down and use fewer flowers. You can see the arrangement here.
I'm not sure what these flowers are called, but I find them to be so sweet and simple and I just love them.
I simply tied some twine to the handle and hung it from a white thumb tack, placing a little floral oasis in the cup and covering it with moss.
I of course used my old books and some terracotta pots I aged last year. I purchased the bronze bunny at our local thrift store and thought of painting it white but decided to leave it as is for a nice contrast.
Please don't forget to come back later tonight for The Inspiration Gallery. See you then!
