A couple of weeks ago I was lucky to win a giveaway over at Tracy's Trinkets and Treasures.
She had put together a wonderful coastal mantel but she was ready for a change.
So she decided to a have a giveaway to celebrate her 1000 followers.
I thought I’d show you how I used some of the pieces on my own mantel in my bedroom.
The sea fan was part of the giveaway but the LOVE sign was something that Tracey made.
You can go by and see how she made it. She used one of my beach photographs to make it!
I was so flattered that she used my photo and then thrilled when she wanted to pass it on to me.
I think they look great together on the mantel.
But wait there’s more!
This fantastic weathered looking sailboat and two knobby starfish.
I almost bought a similar sailboat myself and I’m so glad I waited.
I love this one so much more.
I placed them on this little half table that I redid last year.
It sits at the end of the hallway. My bedroom is just to the right so I get to see them often.
I thought they went well with this trio of pictures I already had up.
I’ll share a little secret about these matted prints.
They are really just cards. Greeting cards.
I found the frames at Michaels years ago and they included the mat.
They were ridiculously
All I did was pop in the cards.
I also received 3 jars decorated with netting that I plan to use soon.
I hope that I can show you that sometime next week.
Thanks so much Tracy for having the giveaway.
It was so fun to open the box and have a few new things to play with.
I also wanted to thank you guys for all the sweet comments you left me on my last post.
I know some of you were shocked to actually see me!
Now you have proof, I’m not a starfish ;)
