Random decorating

It is that time of year when spring is really about 2 months away yet, but it feels like time to start moving away from winter.  And there are no holidays to guide decorating, so it gets to be a time to try out random styles.  And in this case literally random....


                    A random collection  of objects displayed on my living mantel.



I love my antique barbwire collection.  This is just a small handful of it displayed in an old sewing machine drawer, along with an antique lace piece, and a photo of my granddaughter.



And I will definitely be making some more Scrabble style letter tiles.  I couldn't decide what I wanted to spell so decided it could just be random for now.


Added in my jars of keys, Scrabble tiles, and typewriter keys that I am hoarding.


Uhm, I didn't vacuum before I started taking pictures and our new kitten makes a mess at times when playing.


Relatively simple and random collection of things to lighten up the mantel and reflect a bit more sunshine.


The wreath is an old project I made last year I think.


You never know what things can be randomly pulled together to create a cohesive look.  (Who spied the love on my mantel?  )
