June Mantle and More...

Here we are in the middle of the month yet again.
Before you know it I will be decorating my mantle for the 4th of July.
But before I get ahead of myself, here is my June mantle.
My antique lanterns and topiaries are my usual staples, joined this month by... 

A simple wool applique picture from a class I took with Maggie Bonanomi and one of Maggie's own original strawberries. I'm loving the soft colors.

Here is a favorite pinkeep done with snippets of a Stacy Nash design.

A Primitive Gatherings table mat with some of my original velvet strawberries.

Ginny Henson and Norma Schneeman strawberries share this bowl.

A Norma Schneeman folk art box and a Stacy Nash class project.

No strawberries here, but the bees and flowers still look right at home this month.
Folk art spool box by Chris Robinson.
Cross stitch design by The Good Huswife.
Original mat by Maggie Bonanomi. 

Don't you love this prolific strawberry plant?
My interpretation of a Needl' Love design.
And last, but certainly not least, my finishes of a Heartstring Samplery design.
"So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God."
~1 Corinthians 10:31
Blessings, Patti

I remember when you were stitching the My Heartstrings pieces, love how they turned out. I also like how you take snippets of designs and create; really like the one from Stacy's designs.

Your mantle looks lovely and your strawberries are just the perfect summer accent. Can't wait to see the July mantle because I don't know how you are going to top the June mantle.
