    I love your summer mantel and the tray is perfect for this arrangement. Change is good is small doses, it gets the creative jucies following.

    We love to have some season changes around our home as well. We have a large grape vine that frames the bay window in our kitchen. Mrs. Stoney changes the artificial flowers she has in it based on the season. Pansies for spring, sun flower in the summer, fall leaves, poinsettia for the holidays and snow flakes for winter. Always nice and colorful!

    The mantel looks really nice. I’m not a big seasonal rearranger either, but I also find myself doing it more because of blogland.
    I LOVE the tray. I would have had a hard time not ordering it as well. :)

    Your summer mantel has inspired me to try a little beach theme on mine as well. And I really like the eye chart tray! The saying is great!

    So simple, but so perfect! The eye chart and the window (painted black) make this work. Love it.

    I love it! I’ve been wondering what to put in my apothecary jars that look so boring and empty.

    I love orchids, too. So far, I’ve had some success with the ones from Home Depot. (Hopefully, I didn’t just jinx myself.)

    I’m really bad about changing things, too. I love what you did with your mantel! I think I might try to do something with mine, too.

    So pretty! It makes me want to go to the beach! :)

    I’m terrible at changing things around. We moved into our house in February and I haven’t completely “finished” one room yet, so until I do that I don’t want to change what little I’ve done!

    What a lovely mantel Jami. I understand what your saying as in New Zealand we tend not to keep changing things, especially our mantels unlike in the USA when you so nicely decorate different times and holidays of the year. I think it’s so refreshing, I might re-do mine up this summer (we’re unfortunately late Autumn at the moment).

    I love your vignette, you have done a really great job, thank you for sharing.

    I always love an old window. The mantel looks gorgeous!

    I totally agree with the blogging thing getting you motivated….and pinterest, besides being a internet black hole of time is so chocka full of ideas it’s great!
    The blog has defiantly got me practicing my photo set up more, and recipe development. The only down side? The fam sometimes has to wait a bit too eat so I can shoot my stuff:)
