This was my first version of my mantel. I took this at night so I apologize for the picture quality. I placed burlap in a frame and attached leaves from my oak leaf hydrangeas and antiqued the frame and made a herbarium. Pinecones and acorns went into glass jars found at Homegoods. The iron basket on the mantel was purchased a few weeks ago at TJ Max. Some of you may recognize the tray from Southern Living years ago. I played around with my pile until it all came together.
I like fern leaves better. They complement all of the colors and textures perfectly.
I went to Nashville today and visited the Carnton Plantation and Carter House. We had a great time but I am pooped. Have any of you ever been? I plan on sharing pictures very soon.
