I hope every one's new year has started off well. Mine has been a mix of lazy days and working around the house. School is still out and won't start back until next week, so my schedule is still a bit off from it's normal routine.
I wanted to share a new look for my fireplace mantel this year. It's nothing new for me to change it out, but this time I wanted a more farmhouse vibe to it. I've been embracing that look lately mixed with my neutral color scheme and really enjoying it.
First, I got these brown and white ticking striped pillow covers for Christmas. Got them early, actually! LOL! They are what started this whole new look for me.
I have some larger ticking stripe pillow covers on order too.
On my mantel, I wrapped ticking stripe material around the base of my topiaries.
Then, I added some cotton branches in with my curly willow.
In the center, I added some vintage leather books and a plant.
And finally, the ultimate farmhouse accent, some cow artwork!
You may recall this used to be in my kitchen at one time.
My sweet sister gifted two of these to me!
Here is the full view of everything put together.
I'm really enjoying the change.....again!
As soon as the other pillow covers come in, I'll share where they end up too.
Thanks for stopping by!
