I’ve changed my mantel décor again. I know, you’re not surprised. You may be surprised that I am calling this blue and yellow mantel “President’s Day” décor though.
I love the color red, but during Christmas, New Years, and Valentine’s, there was red on the mantel. I was ready for a change. So, I got out a couple of my American Heritage Millennium Collection by Churchill.
I bought these plates at a flea market a few years ago, but when I’ve shown them on my blog before, someone said they were giveaways at a grocery store the year of the Millennium. I love the combination of blue and yellow.
This little bowl depicts Mount Vernon on Staffordshire Ironstone.
Okay, I ran out of patriotic dishes in blue, so I confess, this is a scene in Scotland, produced by Royal Warwick. I’m pretending that it represents “purple mountains majesty” and “sea to shining sea”.
I think everyone is really ready for Spring, and so am I. The little tiny green leaves poking out between these wood flowers make me think of Spring popping out.
It won’t be long before I’ll be changing the mantel to greens in preparation for Cuisine Kathleen’s St. Patrick’s Day Blog Crawl. I look forward to her annual Blog Crawl every year. Kathleen is a riot, and she makes the blog crawl so much fun.
Thank you for visiting my blog. laurie
