Until the Mermaid Finds Her Way...

...or until a new inspiration hits... this will have to do. I'm kind of tired of trying to figure it out. Every day my husband comes home to a new mantel display. He misses out on the two or three variations that existed earlier in the day, and that's probably a good thing.

I like this though, I like the old family pewter (Frank's family's) and the way it shines. The sticks and seashells work well with it and the house and fireplace, and the peace bird is so... me. It adds a bit of whimsy to all of it - so it's not so old-fashioned and serious. I think I'll keep this for awhile.

I like the color. I also have a very large fireplace(dark brick). I to have a hard time getting it just right. I decided on a color similar to yours and bought a new cream sofa to try to lighten up the dark and overpowering fireplace. I like what you have done. It looks very homey.

I think your display looks great, Pam. It's casual and fits in with your home, and it's fresh looking. It will welcome spring. Nice job!

so pretty.....
just found your blog and enjoy it.
I'm just starting one myself. Take a look at www.curiousdetails.blogspot.com
I am coveting your beach!!! Oh, and if you're still playing around with your mantle, how about some big honking seashell bookends for winter, with worn books in between?
