I have been away for a while but I’m back! Ryan and I have been saving every extra penny to put towards some travels we’re planning so I haven’t bought anything for the house or changed anything in a while. This past weekend I took some time to change up the mantle and the bookshelves that surround it. My friend supplied some magnolia leaf trimmings so I didn’t have to purchase a thing. I like the challenge of having to use ONLY what I have in new ways. Here it is. I added some pops of colors I wouldn’t ordinarily use such as Orange and Green.
