Rosemary Wreath Mantel

Is there such thing as a pie hangover? Mercy!

Our Thanksgiving was really fun and filling {as it's meant to be}. 
We were with family and old friends and our day was filled with lots of great food, laughs, sentimental moments and good memories made. 

 Recently I shared with you how I created this Little Rosemary Wreath, and promised to come back and show you a little vignette I created around it.

I've been using my faux mantel in the living room to photograph a few creations, like my vintage style mini Christmas trees, and some things for the shop.

But, what's wrong with this picture?  haha

Below the mantel shelf, things are looking pretty bare! 
My electric fireplace has been on loan to a friend whose elderly mother was visiting from Texas and needed some warming up, but it will be back soon : )

I really don't use many gold accents in our home, but I think I'm leaning towards some hints of gold this Christmas. 
The gold frame I used around the slate behind the wreath is something I've had forever. 

Think late 1980's with a country Victorian print...later changed out for a wedding photo...recently resurrected from the back of my closet after several years to become "all new" Christmas 2013 decor. ; )

Yes, these are the same brown jugs I used in my Nature Inspired Foyer.

I gave them a little frosty Winter update by adding some vintage glass glitter. I added an old glass doorknob as a stopper on one, and the lid of a vintage decanter on the other.

I tucked a couple of large pine cones into two milk glass containers.

I added a couple of mercury glass style ornaments, and some pearly-gold balls.

In keeping with the nature inspired theme, I placed pine cones on the glass candle holder instead of candles.

An easy, nature-inspired look, pulled together entirely of things I already had, but used in a new way.

Is this "the" Christmas mantel? Maybe. 

Maybe not : )

I hope your Thanksgiving was all you had hoped for. I am truly grateful to YOU for being here, friends! 

Have a wonderful weekend!

  1. This is SO much so that I might JUST have to adopt a few of your ideas with what I have lying around the house...inside AND out! May I ask where you got the labels for your brown bottles?

  2. Everything is beautiful, but I am in love with the tall, skinny pinecones.

  3. Looks good! I love that little wreath! I've never thought of using rosemary that way...I have a ton of rosemary growing out front. Hmmm

    Have you ever made a topiary? I saw another blogger use just a stick poked into a floral foam ball. Then she covered them with greenery. You could cover them with rosemary. A pair of them would look great in those white vases.

    I've always wanted to try making one.

    Love that doorknob stopper and the neat bottle too!

    Thanks for stopping by, and Hugs! ox
