My Shabby Chic Mantel Fluff Up!

I need a tiny glimpse of spring...
 A fresh Shabby Chic inspired mantel will do the trick!
 With the New Year upon us I am in the mood for soft colors and symbols of hope...
During Christmas I used alot of whites and gold...I am ready for a dabble of pink!
I am in love with this beautiful rosette I found on Holiday Getaway, I pinned it to the top of this antique mirror...
These crushed roses are my favorite....so soft and sweet!
My tree will stay up until after the first. However, I could not resist this pretty touch of Romance for the New Year!  I just love "new" adventures!
Yesterday it was an adventure in my kitchen!
Today, a Shabby Chic Romantic Mantel!
I will be sharing this with

  4. Everything looks so pretty :-) I just read that the 2011 color of the year is honeysuckle...but not the yellow of the flowers, a pretty pink color. You're going to be able to find so many ways to use it!
    Blessings,

    What a gorgeous share sweet one, and this mantel is exquisite. You have such a beautiful eye for decorating and it is always eye candy gorgeous.

    I love the little bird in the nest. That just stole my heart, and the cherubs holding her up is even more beautiful.

    The mirror is so gorgeous and I love the ribbon reflection in it. It just says "Beautiful", absolutely beautiful. Each little piece in its' proper place.

    My tree will stay up until next year as well. I just couldn't bring myself to take it down yet. I have truly enjoyed looking at in the evening all aglow.

    Here is wishing you and your family the very best for the New Year sweetie. Many hugs and SO much love, Sherry
