Rearranging the Mantel for a New Do!!!

Hi All!
You know how it is when you get just a few new things and then have the urge to rearrange.
The crock was a early birthday gift from the hubby and I though it needed a honored place on the mantel.
So off with some of the old and on with the new!

And I'm  loving the birdhouse that I found on Saturday while shopping at hobby lobby.   But what I  really love are these cute little birdies!  An early B-Day gift from hubby and they fit so nicely next to my new birdie house!

 A little more rearranging with some old books, a white GW pitcher and my chippy looking dove.

Just a little change but I'm liking the new look!  I think the warm yellows add a nice dimension and they will move right into Autumn.

I decided to move some of the mantel decor over to the TV armoire and create a new vignette.
I am happy with the results for now and I will go back and tweak as we get closer to Autumn!
Have a great week everyone!

Thanks Ladies!

    What a beautiful share this morning. I Love your new mantel look. The birds are so precious, you know me and the birds. Your pitcher looks so pretty up there too.

    That birdhouse has been singing to me since you first shared it. I am going to check out our Hobby Lobby this week and see if they have one I can pick up. I love the look of it. So clean and will go just about anywhere.

    Hope you have a wonderful week sweet friend. Thank you again for the beautiful share.

    Many hugs and much love, Sherry

  13. Cindy, I love your new mantel vignette. The crock and the birds are gorgeous. Happy early Birthday. Great gifts. Love the birdhouse too. You have such a pretty fireplace. Your new arrangement on the ent. center is gorgeous too. Great job. Isn't it fun to move things around. Love them both. Thanks so much for linking to TTT. Hugs, Marty

  14. Your mantle is so lovely. It won't be too much longer and I will be putting up our fall decor. Can't wait. Fall is my favorite time of the year.

  19. I love the new look too Cindy....just that touch of yellow brightens everything up. I adore your FP screen, that looks really pretty. Debbie

  20. Oh Cindy, those little stacked birds are so cute! Are they ceramic or wood? The crock is pretty too. Your husband has great taste (of course he does, he married you). Your mantel looks so pretty, and so does your tv cabinet. Wishing you a wonderful day tomorrow! laurie

  21. Your mantle looks great! I'm lovin' the stacked birds, and yes, it does have a fall-ish feel:@)

  22. Cindy, great new mantel change. Love your new birdhouse and birds. Great crock. I have been seeing quite a few at the flea markets lately. It is so nice to change things up to make it all feel fresh and new.

  23. Hi Cindy! It all looks great! What a wonderful big mantle you have! Love your birthday presents!
    You always make such beautiful spaces.
    Be a sweetie,

  26. Love the new arrangement, Cindy, very well balanced and has lots of depth. Beautiful mantel all throughout! Love the new items such as the birds, burdhouse and the crock...Christine

  27. I am loving it all Girlfriend! But I must say - those birds are just TDF! They are absolutely adorable!
    I can't wait to see a fire in that fireplace!!!!!
    (hehehe) It is 105 here, and expected to be that again for the next 2 days. But I'm good with it, because we have had the most beautiful and cool summer on record. So - a few days of hot, hot is OK with me.
    Miss you! We need a shopping excursion! When are you coming out again?

  28. Hi Cindy -- LOVE that stone jar from your husband. Did he pick that out himself with no help from you? wow, if so -- he is for sure a KEEPER.
    And the birds are adorable -- stacked up so cute! The mantel looks terrific, and you are right-- you can slide right into autumn with it.
    But -- not yet!

  29. I'm quite smitten with that little crock! What a beautiful mantel you have created. Girl, ya tweak so well!

    Enjoy your day sweetie!

  30. Cindy we have almost the same fireplace. How nice yours looks. Mine needs some serious tweaking.


I would love to hear from you. Come back and visit anytime. Warmest Wishes, Cindy
