Can't really beat $10.00 for a sweet little piece like this with loads of character and function. I'm very happy with the purchase.
I've also been tinkering around with the mantel as well. Always moving things around and switching things in and out when the mood strikes. Here's my latest look that I've been enjoying. It's hard to get a good shot of the entire thing.
I really wish I had gotten another one of the lanterns that you see there on the right to balance that one out, but I just try to vary the heights on each side. The lantern and large round basket are both from Home Goods from a few years ago.
I had gotten the hanging plant a few weeks ago when we were down visiting my brother in NJ. I originally had it in our sun room but since it's not finished yet we don't spend any time in there. I wanted to bring it up to the living room where I could enjoy it. It didn't come with a tag at all with a name or care instructions. Does anyone know the name of it? It won't stay here forever but I love the element that it brings to the side of the fireplace and sort of draws your eye down as it cascades.
Here's a closer shot of another one of the plants that I added here. This is a Wandering Jew plant or also referred to as Purple Heart. It's really easy to care for and doesn't really require much attention.
At some point I'll get a better shot of the entire mantel.
We're headed to the Manayunk Arts Festival this coming weekend. It's sort of become a birthday tradition (at my request). I'll try to post some photos to Instagram. Have a great weekend!
