Mantled for Mexico
Usually the mantle over our fireplace is a shambles. It’s where we drop our keys, cards and sometimes even the mail.
Left to right: A tarnished silver toothpick holder in the shape of a fish, a terra-cotta plate with a fish design, a tin vase with dried hydrangeas.
A few weeks ago when we were having a Mexican
fiasco fiesta at The Glade I pulled out anything I could find (that we already owned) shopped our home for things with a South of the Border vibe.
The other side has a wooden box with a bowl on top of it depicting a roadrunner, a small turquoise pitcher and a swirly vase.
The whole thing actually became sort of a “southwest, south of the border, it’s growing in the yard, the colors are right just put it there” design.
Hydrangeas, fresh or dried, are splendid to add volume and a splash of color.
I like the variety of things; they remind of the people who gave them to me.
My Mexican Mantle. Ole!
I’m sure to dismantle this when the building starts. I don’t know when that will be exactly but the plans are ready!!!!
A closer look at the fish duo.
Tried something new?
