Summer Mantle

I’m pretty sure we can call it summer, at least in my corner of the world! I put together a Few-of-my-favorite-summer-things Mantle the other day and I thought this would be a good time to show you just in case you want to see!  :)

Front and center is my string art flag! Ohhhh, I love this flag! I made it for a series of posts I’m doing for another website…the posts will be up this summer and I’ve got an easy tutorial for the flag…I’ll keep you updated in case you want to see it! summer mantle

Have you started pulling out your favorite things for summer? (or for fall if you’re down under!?)

If you’re in the US, observing Memorial Day & you’ve lost someone close while they served in the military…I’m sorry dear ones. So sorry. And thank you for your enormous sacrifice…DSC_9184

Just in case you have an extra minute today…here’s a little more Summer Fun!

    I would love to see a tutorial on the flag. What a great piece of decor!

  2. Love the idea of putting a giant piece of artwork in front of the mantel while it’s not being used! Pinned! Christine from Little Brags

    Hi Robin, still love that potting bench! Happy Memorial Day……….

  4. I love that light board in the background. I’ve pinned the idea — our fireplace has the darker stone and this way I can lighten it up. Thank you for the idea.

    • Marisa, everything gets lost on my mantle! I love the stone but it’s so dark! I hope you can add some planks to your mantle my friend xo

  5. Such wonderful ideas!! Love your mantel and your flag!!! Happy Memorial Day!!~~Angela

  6. Just checking in with you and admiring all the beautiful ways you inspire us so! Love to you sweet friend!

  7. Great post today! Love the summer mantle!

  8. It looks wonderful, Robin. I love the whitewashed wood and starfish. Happy Memorial Day!

  9. Love every square inch of this post! I have an old door–really small, not sure why it’s so small, but I want to paint it like a flag. :) Thanks!

  10. Your mantel is beautiful. I love the starfish. They are one of my favorite elements to decorate with and they are all over my house. I hope to someday live in a house with a fireplace and mantel to decorate. I’m off to check our your summer art tutorial.

  11. I love everything about your fireplace, especially the coastal accents and the flag! :)

  12. I really like the mantle. So summery.
