The Joy Of Home: Summer Mantle

Sometimes things come together slowly.  This year's Summer mantle is no exception!  The shells and related pieces have been up on the mantle for weeks.  Of course my in-laws ashes are a fixture on the mantle (in the center) and are there year round.  With having to hibernate indoors so much during this latest (extended) heatwave (because of the heat, my usual health & battling bronchitis), I've finally started switching things around.

But, my Summer mantle finally came together this past Friday after a rare cool day of being out & about hitting a few clearance sales when I found those two adorable Owls! The finishing touch came yesterday when I clipped that bouquet of roses from my garden so this awful heat wouldn't claim the last of those blooms and shrivel them to bits.

And there you have it!  What are you doing to change things up for this season?
