Flower Market Mantel

It shouldn't be a secret to anyone that I love,  love,  love flowers.    I pretty much love all flowers but roses are my favorite. 

 My inspiration for this mantel was the fact that I decided to take down the Christmas tree in the formal living had been up about 3 years.     It was covered    ( er decorated with flowers,  lol)    and I didn't know what to do with all of them.....that's part of the reason it's been up so long.      So,  I decided to open up a flower market in the master bedroom.

I found a white enamel Welcome and Closed sign at Michael's the other day and thought it would be perfect for my flower market mantel.

It has a Welcome side and flips around to a Closed side.

You are going to see lots of roses on my flower market mantel.......and a FEW other kinds of flowers!

I made a few other changes to the faux fireplace that you can see in the next photo......

I freshened the fireplace opening by adding the white lace  fireplace screen that was in the family room and put a black wrought iron screen in front of it.     The black screen is new to me since my daughter didn't want it anymore and I gladly took it.   
 I replaced the Victorian houses that were above the fireplace before with a flower market theme.

The Victorian houses found a new home in  the guest bedrooms.

The flower market baskets are white enamel and can be hung or set.    I have the bigger one hung,  and the two smaller ones are just sitting on the mantle.

I also used a silver bucket to hold some of the flowers for sale at the market.

This photo shows how the fireplace looks from the master bath......

The mirror on the side of the fireplace reflects the chesser on the opposite wall...............

I have some smaller pots of flowers on the mantel......

Roses in a pretty pot.......

I have a sign on the clip stuck in a succulent pot......

I printed some vintage flowers seed can find them on my Pinterest board.......

I also have a printed sign on a milk can ........

I changed out the bedding before Christmas.......

The white spread you see in the photo on the left went to the same bedroom that the Victorian houses found a home.

Thanks for stopping by........come back soon!
