Soft sweet whites
and shiny glamourous silver.
My Summer mantel vignette was inspired by
those gorgeous peonies that came home with me from the
market the other day.
They made me think of old romance.
Faded Shabby colors and vintage cottage charm.
The sweet little ornaments were a recent thrift find and
I added them in for a bit of Christmas in Summer fun.
I love their old mottled luminescent colors.
and they are a near perfect match to the peonies.
The mantel will be changing again in just a few days
as the peonies are starting to drop their leaves
and are drying out already.
But sure enjoying their sweet look and scent for now!

Those awesome peonies just don't last long enough, do they, Courtney? 🙂 I hung on to mine til they were wrinkled and drooping over the side of the vase. lol! I can't believe that you actually dug out some Christmas ornaments (where did I pack mine….????) but they really look cool and clean next to the pink! You are so talented, girl!

How beautiful. I especially love the top photo. It could be a card.
So pretty, the last of my peonies just finished, always sad to see them finish! I adore your mantel vignette, and the touch of "Christmas" sparkle!
