Those who visit my blog regularly may have guessed (with a sigh) the answer to my title question.  What’s blue and white and flowered all over?  Of course, it’s my current mantel vignette.  I’m sure you think I change my mantel more than I change my clothes, but I promise you, I change my clothes at least daily~my mantel about every other day (not really that often ~ yes, I’m talking about the mantel).

I love this mantel! Of course I love blue and white, but it's the little touches that make it so special. Your tags are a great addition.

This looks really nice! I was thinking of taking down the patriotic display on my mantle. It's nice to get some new ideas from you!


Debbie said...

Correct guessing here, but no sighing. I happen to have a blue and white mantel right now, and I was hoping for some mantel inspiration.

Of course, I got it! I love all your plates, especially that large platter in the middle. It's a really lovely mantel.

I wish I changed mine more often. It just seems to take me so long to do mine each time.

Laurie, this really offers a delightfully cooling atmosphere for the hot summer days. Absolutely beautiful! Love the special effects photo at the top. What program did you use to get that. You should make note cards using that image.
Have a terrific week. Stay cool.........Sarah

I love blue and white and I love your collection! But of course i do, I love all your collections!

Hope all is well with your lovely family too!
Hugs friend,

I love your blue and white mantel. Nice and crisp for summer! Someday I may play with the big girls and take all the family pics down and do my mantel. Maybe... :)

Laurie your mantel looks beautiful. I just love the blue and white color scheme.

Sue said...

Oh Laurie, I am so taken with all of your blue and white! I am always on the look-out for plates, but haven't seen many lately that are affordable. Of course, you know I'm hitting the yard sales! Your mantel is always so attractive and this is no exception
