My mantle

Colored glass bowls, wedding love, toofragileforme orchid, vintage bluebird needlepoint, vintage Vertigo ad.




I'm getting obsessive having fun these days finding little things here and there to spice up the new pad. We usually hang a big pic over a fireplace, but we're enjoying this hodgepodge mix at the moment. (If that orchid is dead the next time I take a photo, blame Clay plzthx. It's his green baby -- not mine.)

  1. Oooh, we seem to share similar tastes, only mine's in my head and doesn't directly translate to my home! Fantastic! Come decorate for me!

  2. Lovely! I have a sailboat, a spray bottle, a dog toy, and an iron on my mantle. Somewhat less chic, sadly.

  4. funny you should post this because i have recently become obsessed with vintage needlepoints! i've marked a bunch as favorites on Etsy, and I've looked into needlepoint classes. (I know, who have I become?!)

    please come decorate my pad.

  6. I have no talent for decoration at ALL. I swear, my brain thinks decoration = MORE PICTURE FRAMES. I wish someone could teach me to put together little knickknacks like this.
