Calendars have gorgeous photo's in them, so I frequently use them in my decorating. I can still remember my grandmother using them to decorate her walls years ago....that's about all they had back then!
Sometimes I frame the photo's I get from my calendars, but this time I just attached them to the "walls" of my barn.
So, I have a calendar photo on each end of the mantel and in the center I put one of my favorite cows.....you've seen me use her many times in my vignettes.
You've seen the white Farmhouse sign many times, but what's new is the architectural piece that H added to the entrance of the barn. I bought it several years ago at a yard sale so I don't know what it was originally. Any idea's?
The strips of cows that I added to the Farmhouse ribbon across the edge of the mantel also came from the calendar.
I hung a simple garland of vintage doilies across the front of the fireplace.......
The daytime temps around here are in the 70's but the night temps are in the low 30's (crazy isn't it?) so we have been setting the ferns inside at night. We hadn't set them back out yet when I took my pic's so I just left them in the photo
The big snow ball bush that's in the backyard has lots of blooms on it so I put together a bouquet for the tables on each side of the fireplace..
The blooms are still pretty green, but I think they're still pretty.
When H & I were on our drive the other day, we saw lots of fields filled with cows grazing on winter wheat. Seeing those cows grazing AND the calendar gave me the inspiration for my mantel!
I thought I would share the link to my pretty calendar. When I ordered it a few weeks ago it was discounted to less than $9.....I noticed it is now marked up to almost $14! I wonder why!
I always enjoy your visits so much, please stop by again soon!
