Here's my mantel for the season...
*Yes, those are rabbit ears you see...we tend to be a bit archaic when it comes to our home electronics!
I have to admit a bit of jealousy towards all you people who have stunning, traditional fireplaces...you know, the ones that don't neighbor the ever-so-ugly-but-convenient-t.v.-cutout. Ugh...both of our homes so far have had a similar set-up. For now I resort to being thankful for any type of mantel at all...but please do enjoy your brick surrounded by lovely white woodwork if you've got it!
I didn't purchase one new thing for the mantel this year. I used a few of my favorite vintage coffee containers. I stole the 'W' and frame from my entryway...stay tuned to see what's taking their place! You've seen the hat before...it was grandma's. I put some vintage books and a sweet little McCoy pottery vase in the birdcage, which sits atop an old cash box. That's it! Simple, simple. I love the yellow tones, especially in connection with my new chair!
