For Mother’s and Father’s Days, I made the great room mantel more personal…reflecting the people in our family. Purposely, I displayed photos of mothers with daughters especially for Mother’s Day.
I brought out a cherished picture of my mom that I really need to save and preserve better than I have it now (or else I will lose it). It’s such a small but lovely photo of her that I wanted to give it more prominence so I placed it inside a small vase with a dried hydrangea. I added two of her favorite books as well. I miss her so much.
I hope you enjoy the changes I made to the mantel! Perhaps it might be a bit on the cluttered side – but that’s family life too, right? A little cluttered and crowded…but you love it just the same!
