Spring Mantel

It’s Tuesday and that means it’s Spring fling mantel time with Layla @ the Lettered Cottage.  I do enjoy changing it  up and I never can do much because our TV is mounted over the fireplace and the speakers sit on the mantel.  At any rate, I try to put a bit of life into it every season.  Check it out.





I love white and pink and purple. 🙂  This week I’ll be putting up my Easter decorations so you’ll have to check back.  Here’s a hint or should I say mess on my table.


Are you decorating your mantle?


Valentine Mantel

Don’t ya just love an excuse to decorate your mantel.  Mine is it’s soon to be Valentines Day and Beth @ Home Stories A to Z is having a Valentine Mantel linky party.

My mantel doesn’t change to much.  Our  flatscreen and speakers take up most of the space on the mantle and above the fireplace so I try to keep it pretty simple.  Here it is…apologies for the bright light. 


Here’s a closer look…

I took my winter mantel, and just a few updates.  I re-wrapped the candles with some bright pink scrapbook paper.  I left the greenery and white branches in the silver vases and added some heart shaped picks in pink and white that I picked up at the Dollar store.  I also added those white picks with little white balls, so cute and only a 1.99 each in a after Christmas sale at Ace Hardware.

I also dressed up the glass table top that is to the right of the fireplace.



I had so much fun doing this frame.  My neighbor’s in the frame business and gave it too me.  I can’t find the original picture but it was gold.  I spray painted it white, added a piece of scrapbook paper for the backing.  The large heart came in a package of 4 at the Dollar store along with a package of pink heart stickers.


Did you notice the little box to the right of the picture frame?


It’s an old cigar box and I added a paint chip and some pink stickers.  Simple and cute, right?  The last item on the table is the candles vignette.


I hate to do this, but I’m going to save that story until Friday.  You won’t believe how I came up with the white candle holder.  To Be Continued…

Have you been decorating your mantel or other areas in your home for Valentines Day.  What cha doing?
