Thrift Store Mantel Decor...

I've been playing around with the mantel decor a bit and thought it might be fun to group several thrift store finds together...

There's a silver candleholder, some small shaker bottles, a white footed vase...

... and my favorite, the lady head planter vase on the end (found last year at a thrift store in Cambridge, MA). Although she's elegant just as she is, I wanted to try a few different looks on her...

Here she is modeling a bit of faux ivy....

... and here she is sporting a bird's nest to celebrate SPRING.


 Decisions, decisions...


Although it's hardly spring-like, with it's black velvet brim, I kept coming back to this vintage hat with the delightful netting and rhinestone embellishment (picked up at yet another thrift store in Cambridge last year)...

So for the time being, Miss Lady Head Planter Vase will sport her black & white hat while sitting on the mantel among my other thrift store finds.

I'm linking up to Cindy at My Romantic Home for Show & Tell Friday, so be sure to stop over and see what everyone is sharing this week!

Have a great weekend, everyone!

She's delightful and can sport so many different looks! I wish I'd had time to investigate thrift stores in Cambridge! You'll have to pass on some names to me when we come back in September!

Donna I am glad you put that gorgeous hat on that poor lady. She had a deep crevice in her head! LOL
Really I absolutely love that hat. I have a thing for old hats! I have several. I am going to find a coat tree so I can display them in my guest room!!
