My Summer Mantle {mantel}

It’s about time, right?  I actually finished this up a couple of weeks ago, but am just now getting around to sharing my summer mantle.  I wanted to keep this mantel simple but layered, and in keeping with a summertime and travel theme.  Did I hit the mark?

The painting of the little girl running in the waves is something I purchased a few years ago at a Special Olympics art auction.  It reminds me of my daughter.   Of course, my map candles are here, along with a piece of wood that washed up on the beach in Destin a few months ago.  The Cordova candle sconces are available in my online Willow House store.  The urn and wooden spheres are retired Willow House pieces.  And what is a coastal theme without a shell?

We’re enjoying all the different textures and the browns and blues of the beach!

Did you change up your mantle this summer?
