Better Homes and Gardens have produced 32 ideas for decorating mantels this season! I like four of them a lot, what do you think?
A rich burgundy inviting mantel, or an etherial light one? mmmm? Or even one, using a garden gate (look carefully!) And the candles give the last one a very intimate glow.
Where I come from wreaths were only used for funerals, so I am thinking a heart shaped twiggy affair with some red roses, maybe.....

I have seen so many lovely blogs including starfish in either a bathroom display or on a 'beach cottage' type of table display. I have been on the lookout for a few of these, and sourced them locally. Pretty soon will be buying some.
There are two reasons I like starfish. Firstly, they look beautiful Secondly, in South Africa they represent a society that looks after orphaned children suffering from aids.They therefore represent hope.

Hello all you lovely bloggerettes, and bloggers! I have been away for some weeks, and am now catching up on all your lovely posts. My humble offerings today are my new corkboard for my mini-office, which is already filled with magazine articles and pictures.
Also it was my Birthday, and I received the dandiest mittens and scarf from my Daughter.
