not bad, right? i mean, it looks nice to me. but then i thought, well hey, it might be fun just to try and change it up. and since there is this summer mantel party going on, why not play nice with the other kids and go to a party? : ) so i thought, what's summery? white! white is summery! so i gathered all the white objects i had from around my apartment. it was kinda fun trying to be creative and thinking outside the box. putting things up on my mantel that i "hadn't bought for the mantel". you know, like since i bought a pitcher for somewhere else in my apartment i couldn't possibly use it anywhere else! haha oh gee. me.... so then it looked like this
i guess i liked it, but it seemed a tad boring to me. i love when other people do all white things but for some reason it wasn't gellin for me. i dunno. so i broke my "white is summery" rule and pulled out something else.
and i loved this side
an ikea pitcher, an ikea frame and one of our nice wine glasses (which usually holds things like juice and chocolate milk) with rice and a candle stuck in. cute. : )
but there was something about this side i didn't like
hmm is it the stand the plate is sitting on?
nope. still something i don't like....
i think it's the creamy colored book... it's not right for some reason. and there's not enough height or something... so i tried something else.
yep. i like it. : )
and since my apartment is apparently in a jungle and absolutely no light comes in during summer months (it's summer in georgia people!) i had to set my camera to outside night-time setting.. whatever it's called. which means my lens stays open for longer. which means when i'm holding it you get super blurry pictures. like this.
seriously? what was i doing, jumping jacks when i took this?
so since i have no tripod and i wanted a clear picture... i built my own tripod.
hahaha classy, huh?
hey, i'm just being real. and also i want everyone to be fully aware that i am fully aware that my pictures are all a touch blurry. except the ones i took in the treehouse tripod. nice. : )
so that's how my mantel will be for summer. and when fall comes (my favorite season ever!!) i will change it again but, just bein real, it'll be like this till then. : )
the sun came out a little more and i just couldn't resist taking a picture with a little more light.. i love natural light and i wish i had more of it in here.. *sigh*
