My Summer Mantel

I have been waiting to use this oar for over a year and now I finally get to use it. 

My Summer Mantel:

Ingredients for my summer mantel:
Owl Bank
Old Books with interesting colors
Metal Pulleys for interest
Beautiful Old Buffet Mirror
Dried Hydrangia poof
Cut Hostas in Ball Jars for color
Old Window with original paint oar

I painted this oar last summer with our lucky number on it. My husband has a strict "no words" policy as far as wall art goes. However...he never said anything about numbers. :)

Linking up to:
The Lettered Cottage


  1. Perfectly nautical! The window is gorgeous and I like the oar in an angle!!

  2. I LOVE your oar. So beautiful. Love the colors and the number.

  3. I like the addition of the oar. Perfect for summer!
