Fluffing the Mantle

I took everything off the mantle and coffee table and started fresh!  I shabbied up the two chandeliers also!

I added aqua ,pink and cream pearls.  I glued on roses that  I made and also some rag strips!   

This sweet little bird is out of his cage.  I love this bird, it was a Christmas gift many years ago from my son and  daughter in love!

I added aqua, pink, and cream pearls to this one!  Also more rag strips!

More of my antique linens!

I got this old seltzer bottle when we were on vacation.  And for those that saw my new wreath yesterday, you will notice that I have added some of my dried aqua hydrangia to it!

I decorated some of my blue jars and gave them a top!  An old electric insulators fits perfect and holds a candle!

Here is some more of my blue jars.  I put them on a chandelier and decorated some of them!  The thing you are seeing in the plate on top is an old pharmacy prescription holder!  Will show it better later!  I will be partying here:
