A Late Summer Mantel



Well, dare I say the words, summer is slipping away. It'll be August in mere days. Around here, since we homeschool, we say that it's summer till mid September, just 'cause we can! After Wednesday's camper crush post, you can probably tell that I'm feeling a might bit adventurous and I wanted our mantel to be a bit adventurous too. A little while back, I wrote about our late spring mantel, and honestly I've had that one up until now. Usually, I do a summer mantel with lots of beachy items that I've collected, but this year I was so in love with my cow print in all her glory, that I just left the mantel as it was all these months. I was finally ready for a change, and since I have adventure and campers on the brain, I've been collecting some fun pieces to reflect my adventurous spirit. 







I decided to leave up our old "barn door" that we made because it really helps to lighten up all those dark rocks. I also left up the white banners, the more white, the more bright- a great decorating tip for renters! I found the white paper fans and thought they added a little bit of whimsy. This look will keep me happy until I start to feel the cool crispness of the fall air, and then it'll be time to think about Thanksgiving and the upcoming holidays. I'm sooooo not ready to welcome any of that yet, so I'm going to stay adventurous for as long as I can! Thanks for stopping by today!
