I seriously do not know what my deal is with lemons. I have been crushing on them…since…well…Christmas. Remember when everyone was talking Christmas décor and I was planning what I was going to do after the tree came down? I was thinking on…you guessed it, lemons.
(Just a side note: I love Christmas. I love the Christ of Christmas. I love the message of Christmas. It’s the frenzy that makes me long for January.)
So…as soon as the New Year rolled around…I had these big, wonderful faux (Let’s call them faux…because fake just sounds so…well…fake.) lemons under a cloche and on our breakfast nook table. My kitchen sink faces that way so I could look at these wonderful “faux” lemons often.
Maybe it is because Ol’ Man Winter has been creaking around and not getting in any type of a hurry. The length of winter makes me long for the bright and cheery. Bright and cheery is good. It makes me feel…well…bright and cheery.
So…what was I talking about today? Ahhh yes! The mantle. The urn thingys were picked up at a yard sale. I was so excited that they had two. I had been wanting two of something to put on each side for a while now. Junkin’ really pays off if you love that kind of thing. I love…lovity…love that kind of thing, as you know.
I thought that the little urns were the perfect place for my lemons. I love the look of a little boxwood (faux) in there with them. I am crazy about white but I love bursts of color in there too. Cheery…ya know? 😉
Have a great day, Dirt Roaders! Our Spring/Summer mantle isn’t fancy. It’s actually pretty plain and simple. I like décor that makes me want to take a deep summery breath. How about you?
