It’s only a post-Wedding mantelpiece but I like it…

The day after our wedding we woke up in our boutique hotel room, had nice showers in L’Occitane smellies and then, feeling rather tired, headed for home, after picking up cards and gifts left at our venue.

We made a pot of tea and sat down to open all these lovely messages and then tried to make room for as many things as possible on our mantelpiece. We had said that we didn’t need gifts but many of our friends and family gave us money or things they knew we’d love anyway and we felt totally overwhelmed by their generosity.

Our lovely P&P has pride of place and a selection of cards shows just a little of the love we received. That’s my bouquet on the right – lovely gypsophilia and freesia and little pearls!

We were grateful to receive these little instruction manuals too. They’re very informative.

With the support of Ladybird books I’m sure this will be a long and fruitful Union! Must say we loved leafing through these and giggling – what a fab sense of humour the people at Ladybird have!

It is with a short shopping list I say:

It’s only vintage but I like it!

It’s only an Easter mantelpiece but I like it…

Continuing the tradition of decorating my mantelpiece for each season and event I invested in a few new pieces for this holiday.

My glowing bunny came from Notonthehighstreet and he’s pretty cute.

My carrot garland was from a seller Kaz on eBay.

My stained glass bunny was a present from my Mum and came from Jenny Newall it’s really lovely and I’d definitely recommend a look at this seller – I love a bit of handmade, as you know!

I finished the whole look off with a big jug of Spring flowers which always spells Easter to me! Hope you had a lovely Easter – mine was eclipsed a little by my wedding which fell a few days later, but we did squeeze in a roast chicken dinner with my sister and a few chocolate eggs! More on the wedding soon!

It is with a Sunny outlook I say:
