Market Mantel

This is how our mantel has looked since we packed away Christmas!  Overdue for an update, don’t you think!


I did get the Mr. to hang this gorgeous mirror that was a Christmas gift from Marlie, my oldest!  I just love it!

Got some inspiration from our local Farmer’s Market yesterday.

I have never really be a lover of orange, but these beautiful orange roses were calling my name….and they were half price….only $3.00 a dozen!  I couldn’t say no!

These Parrot Tulips will soon burst open to reveal white and peach blooms!

Granny Smith apples are both decorative and delicious!

I just stacked them up in an old cheese crate.  Don’t know how long they will last!

Shopped the house for a few accesories and decided on some of my latterns, an oil lamp and orchid…

Although we have been blessed with temperatures of 16 degrees (celius) this weekend, the thermometer is about to plummet and I am so glad I have my market inspired mantel to remind me that it will soon be spring for sure!

Best thing is, I can just change out the flowers and fruit each week after our visit to the market!
