I decided my mantle needed some reworking since it still seriously resembled Christmas. I really like all my candle sticks, so I didn't really want to change them out. I decided to just add and subtract a little bit here and there and think it looks much more seasonal now. I love my G. Harvey picture, but may try to come up with something different for the Spring and Summer months. I have an idea. . .
I visited Country Roads last weekend. I bought the cute little pewter sugar and creamer on the mantle and the little blue bird salt and pepper shakers below.
I think they look cute with my wedding china that is 30 years old.
I had my knitting group over this morning. We meet weekly in a local coffee shop. It thought it would be nice to host them this week. So I made some extra special goodies. Our family's all time favorite muffins are Chocolate Chip Muffins.
It's the topping that makes the difference; brown sugar, cocoa, flour, butter and chocolate chips. Yessiree!
Mixed with a little fresh fruit and fresh squeezed orange juice. Fantastic! I'm having it for breakfast AND lunch today. Shhh, don't tell. It will be our secret.
