White Wednesday, Mantel for Spring

I don't usually show our lower level family area very often.
It sort of lends itself to a more rustic feel.
A lot of dark wood and colors,
but still with a vintage feel.

The huge rustic mantel was needing to be lightened up for Spring.
So I decided I'd go with a simple theme;
white ironstone tureens and pitchers.

I change out my prints seasonally,
and this is one of my favorites.
I love the muted tones of the vintage landscape.

Books, baskets, birdhouse, and burlap wrapped topiaries
help break up the ironstone.

(I have a little addiction to white ironstone pitchers)
could you tell?

It's a comfortable place for the family
 movie watching, games, pets, and conversation.

If you haven't entered
The Royal Treatment GiveAway
it's easy, just
to join in.

Thank you, Kathleen!

Hope you're having a Wonderful Week!
