My May Mantel

These pretty roses are blooming faster than I can pick them!
This is my Shabby Rose mantel for May...

I love the idea of mantel of the month! Everything is blooming and warming up. 
I used a pretty vintage gold fan mirror tucked behind the girl bust. 
Accented by delicate rose gold cups and a giant floppy bloom of gorgeous garden roses!

I have really wanted a bust ( no puns) so when I saw this sweet girl today I snapped her up for $2!
Whoo Hoo!!
Do you have a pretty mantel to feature? 
Email me with pictures or a link!

 Sweet old Psalm book I adore! I have been around my house alot lately. Thursday, I am having a minor surgery, so, I will probably not be out for garage sales. I have been thrifting for my booths instead. I am praying that God gives me patience and a quick and easy recovery. I am a busy girl and don't like to lay around much.  I will be sharing this with....
Squishy Hugs,


  1. Oh Your roses look gorgeous and your mantel looks wonderful! Hope you had a great Mother's Day!

  2. Olivia, your mantel looks lovely! I am longing for my roses to bloom but it's so cold here that it won't be for another month or so.
    We have the same finials! The one on the far left is the same as mine! Mine had been a dark brown and I painted it white.
    Wishing you a speedy recovery from your surgery. Take care, my friend.


  3. Your mantel is beautiful! How wonderful that you have so many roses! Happy WW!

  4. Hi Olivia, nice things that you put on your tablecloth, very romantic view. NORFOLK prompt and successful recovery, "everything I can to him who gives me strength. " Greetings, Rose Marie

  5. I pray for your quick recovery! Your roses look amazing. I have a hard time picking them from my gardens because I like seeing them there, too. Do you ever feel that way?


  6. Olivia,
    Pretty mantel! Take care of yourself...rest:)

  7. Lovin the roses...

  9. Hi Olivia,

    Good luck on a sppedy recovery!

  10. Your mantle is lovely, adding the fresh flowers brings spring right into your home. I'm visiting over from White Wednesday. Hope your surgery is an easy one.........


  11. Very Pretty! Wish I did have a mantel, the fireplace was taken out of my 100 yr old home some years ago, Celeste, victoriantailor.com

  12. Such a pretty mantel! Love those big ol' floppy roses, too! Daughter gave me 3 of her rosebushes last year and only one survived the transplanting. Not producing yet. Love your new bust, too! TeeHee!!

  13. What a beautiful and elegant mantel, Olivia. I would have loved to join with my mantel, but I didn't know, maybe next time! Keep in touch, I just became your newest follower, this way we'll keep visiting more! Hope you follow back.
    Lots of hugs

  14. I just found your blog. I have enjoyed my time here! I hope you are doing well now! Your mantel is fabulous! What a great deal on the girl bust for $2.00. Maybe you will luck up and find the boy that goes with her. I have seen several sets of these {in both the white and the gold} and have always wanted the white set. I just wasn't willing to pay what they were asking then. Maybe I'll be lucky like you someday! Come by when you get a chance!

    Back Porch Blessings,


Hello Friend! Thank you so much for stopping by! I love to hear your thoughts! Hugs, Olivia
