my everyday mantel

once easter passed & most of our spring decor was packed away in our guest room closet, i decided to freshen up our mantel with a little everyday decor.

i picked up this pretty vintage globe from the thrift shop last week & was so excited to find that it fit the width of our mantel piece perfectly. 

i picked up little things here & there from around our home for our mantel. for this theme, i was drawn to earth greens, teal, robin's egg blue, pops of yellow & white. 

here's a front view of our decorated mantel. i love my boxwood wreath from target. it was a splurge purchase from leftover christmas money & i am so happy with it. 

i collect vintage clipboards of all sizes & love having them on our mantel for clipping my favorite prints & bits of paper ephemera. this print is from the lovely magnolia letter arts. 

i purchased this wooden 'hello' from hobby lobby for just under $12 (with my 40% off coupon!) & i love it. it's been displayed in every corner, but i think it's found it's permanent home... or at least for a little while anyway! 

if you'd like more mantel inspiration, i am fond of erin's mantel decor ideas!

comment below & include a link to your recent decorating projects... i'd love to see!

You inspired a mantel post of my own: Cheers to making our homes our own!

I've been eyeing that same "hello" at our new Hobby Lobby! Maybe I'll give it to myself as a birthday present in a few months. :)

Ever since I saw Erin' barn board pallet background I have wanted one! Such a smart idea on any wall!
