January is the perfect time to refresh spaces in your home and Old TIme Pottery is the perfect place to go to find everything you need for any project.

For my mantel refresh I started out with a shopping trip of course. After I gathered all my goodies from OTP I gave my mantel a good cleaning. Then I started building layers – I love layers.

.I don’t know what I like best but I will tell you that these wooden vases have my heart. Big time. I saw them and immediately put them in my cart! Don’t you love it when you find something that makes your heart sing?

Next I found this eucalyptus and thought it would be perfect in the vases. I had the big arch and antique mirror at home so I wanted another mirror – this arched slightly distressed whitewashed look grabbed me right away on this one so in the cart it went.

I knew I wanted to keep it simple. I’m really drawn to simpler lately. I’ve even packed away some of my collections! (miracle) That’s when I spotted this sweet bird. Boom! My mantel fresh was complete and I love it! Thank you OTP.

But I didn’t want to stop there. I have these two chairs and nesting table here so I started with the table. I grabbed some books, a round wooden piece, another sweet bird and cloche. I think every space needs a plant so we added one here. A couple vintage coasters I found in a drawer and were done with this space.

Update: I realized how much I loved the mantel refresh and this whole space so I headed back to Old Time Pottery and grabbed a few more goodies for little change ups in different seasons. I love a fabulous background where little changes make all the difference.

I love being an Old Time Pottery partner. They are fabulous to work with. So supportive!

I’ll be showcasing those little pieces this week on my IG, FB and TikTok – stay tuned!

Until next time – love ya, think you’re pretty. XOXO, Cindy
