I got the faux bois vases last week at Loblaws so had to include them. The dried wheat is my nod to it being August and that Fall is right around the corner.
I know there are birds everywhere these days, but I needed something to break up all the symmetry of two large and two small vases and two turquoise sap buckets.
I even have a matching vintage tablecloth out. Please excuse the wrinkles, but I just didn't feel like ironing it.
Let's spend a little time considering how lovely faux bois vases are. I love the squiggly lines and the fake knots. Love. Them.
At the same time I thought I would change up the mantel. I stuck with the woodsy look that I had happening on the sideboard.
I put out some of my best birchbark,
and some driftwood sticks along with my aged metal sap bucket and lanterns.
Do you change up your mantel and sideboard with the seasons? I like to, but I don't always get around to it.
