Happy Monday y’all I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving break! We are trying to get back in the swing of things here, but I am thrilled I got the Christmas mantel done over the weekend to share with you! I went green and gold this year, and simple, and love it. :) All I […]
I know I showed you all our mantle during our Fall home tour a few weeks ago, but I am particular, and like to have my seasonal mantels in one post so you and me can refer back to them more easily in the future, so here it is again! Our simple Fall mantel decorated […]
Things are moving quickly around here in the Christmas decorating department! The house is about finished, just still trying to clean up some of the clutter still. But anywho, today I am showing you our Christmas mantel for this year, and I am really digging it. It’s simple, yet grand, and sometimes simple and grand is all you need.
Woohoo who’s ready for Fall?! I know I’ve been talking about Fall since the beginning of the month, soooo, you know I am. :) This year for the Fall mantel I decided I was really digging textures and the rustic look, so that’s how the mantel ended up. Quite a difference from last year’s gold and glam mantel! But something about burlap and pretty textures always draw me in so I went for it and came up with this.
Ever since we have had the faux mantel in the entry/living room, I’ve had the same mirrors up on either side flanking it. They were fine, but I really needed something more. Our house has evolved and changed so much since we got that mantel, so I needed some mirrors that look more updated like the rest of the house. I’ve been considering these mirrors at Target ever since I’ve seen them. Then they finally went half off so I snagged them up.
Hi friends hope you had a great weekend! I was able to finish up our Valentine’s Day mantel over the weekend and snap some pics because we finally had some sunshine! It’s been a dreary couple of weeks here. And usually I do some pretty foo-fooey mantels for Valentine’s Day but this year I wanted to bring it down a notch. So I kept the pink boa packed away this year. Haha.
Woohoo the Christmas mantel is done!! I’m pretty much done decorating the house now for Christmas so that’s nice. I was done early this year. Now I just need to finish my shopping! Oh and the weather seriously needs to get cooler. It’s like 75 and 80 degrees again! Anywho, let’s just get right to the mantel.
Happy Monday everyone I hope you had a great weekend! I’m so excited to reveal our Fall Mantel today! I’m calling it my goldy-glam mantel because of all the sparkly gold. There’s just something about gold (real or fake) that makes everything feel fancier right? Anywho, here she is all glammified.
Hey everyone I hope you had a great weekend, and for all you mamas out there, hope you had a happy Mother’s Day too! I got a few things accomplished and that was nice, and one of them included taking down the Spring/Easter mantel and creating a new summer mantel. And I loooooove how it […]
I can’t believe it’s finally Spring! Well, it feels like it is anyway. Did anyone actually have a real winter this year? We sure didn’t! But anyway, I love how this year’s Spring mantel turned out and I can’t wait to show you! Pin It I call it the simple and elegant spring mantel. :) […]
The house is all pinkified and ready for Valentine’s Day! Well ok, just the mantel is pinkified and I love it. I love pink. I’m certain I need my own pink room somewhere. Where that will be I have no idea, but it’s nice to think about it. :) Anyway here’s the mantel! Valentine’s Day […]
Well, hello there!!! It’s been a while, yes? I’ve missed you all so much, and before I show the mantel I want to thank all of you for the sweet comments, emails, tweets, and Facebook messages about the pregnancy. I am feeling much better these days and am trying to get back in the groove, […]
Well it’s that time of year again…Fall!! And nothing gets me more excited than to decorate the mantel (and the house) with Fall decor. It’s just a cozy time of year. :) This year I went with a rustic look and used lots of natural elements and textures. I was going to try and do […]
Hey all! I don’t know about y’alls Goodwills and thrift stores, but for me, they’ve been a total bust lately. Granted I haven’t gone much this summer, but I do pop in occasionally searching for the next treasure. So since I haven’t had any luck at those stores, I decided to go to a really […]
A certain little girl is turning 2 this weekend! Oh my. We are having a little party here at the house, but I’m not going crazy on decorations or anything (or food), so don’t be expecting some elaborate birthday party post. Although it was pretty, last year’s party was just a little too nutty for […]
Y’all know how much I LOVE redoing our mantel right? Well it was time for another switcheroo since summer is almost here (yay!), and so I wanted to bring in some bright cheery colors, and since I can’t get enough of yellow these days, yellow and aqua is what landed on the mantel this time. […]
Spring has sprung and I’m loving it! Y’all know how much I love redoing our mantel each season, and now I really love it with the new paint color on the walls because it allows me to pretty much do whatever I want to do now. Not that I couldn’t before, but some colors just […]
I wasn’t even going to decorate for Valentine’s day, but silly Beth decided to have another mantel link party coming up on Monday, and well, I’ll do anything for my mantel…and Beth. I wasn’t ready to part with my winter mantel just yet, but I love how the Valentine one came out! So here is […]
Transitioning your Christmas decor into winter decor can be a bit tricky, but if you just do what you think is pretty, then it will work. :) That’s what I did with my winter mantel this year. I kept most everything from my Christmas mantel on there, but just added a mirror that I got […]
Ho ho ho! It’s definitely beginning to feel like Christmas now. We’ve been busy ever since Friday trying to get all of the Christmas decorations up, but I’ve learned when you have a toddler, you have to do it in increments. :) But I did manage to get the mantel complete so that’s what I’ll […]
Yesterday I showed you all the awesome mantel I scored at the Pottery Barn outlet. Now today, I will show you her all fancied up for Fall. :) I just want to kiss it! Do you want to kiss it too? Too bad! :) I am SO in love with having a mantel to decorate. […]
Over the weekend we were headed to the local outlet mall to buy me some clothes. But somehow we did something totally out of the norm and took a little 3 hour road trip to the BIG outlet mall, with baby and all. We literally did a u-turn on the freeway and just started driving […]
