I think my mantel is pretty traditional looking in my hodge podge style home! This is my little summer spruce up!
I found these Spode plates called, 'Spodes Wicker Dell' for ten bucks a piece at a consignment store. Reasonable, I thought and purchased them to brighten up my mantel. After a little research, because they are marked with an old stamp, these plates were probably made around 1930. Ebay sells this plate for around $22 a plate. Needless to say, I was thrilled that I paid less than half!
This ironstone pitcher is old, and I only have one.
I purchased this small vase from Homegoods for about six bucks. It provides some balance without being exactly the same!
Mantel after Christmas. Blah. Yellow tipped roses can make anything look more beautiful!
