Around the House: I finally have a mantel!By Dawn Sailors In Around the House, Living Room
Ahhh it’s the little things. :)
One of our favorite features when touring our house for the first time (back before it was our house) was the fireplace. Or more accurately, the idea of a fireplace, since we’ve yet to actually use it. But that’s another story that involves mystery debris and lack of a proper inspection. Maybe some day.
Back to the matter at hand. The second best thing to having a fireplace (that works) is having a mantel!! But up until our recent living room rearranging, our TV took up the majority of the mantle space. And it always made me a little sad. But not anymore! Now the mantel is fully decked out with everything I could possibly find to throw up there. haha, jk. Sort of.
And since fall is upon us, and there are some lovely ladies having a linky party this week, I thought I’d join the fun. My mantel may not be completely fall themed, but it’s fall, and I finally have a mantel. Good enough for this girl!
What do you think? Having an actual mantel to decorate makes me a happy girl. Now I can hardly wait to hang Christmas stockings this year! :)

Hahaha, “Now the mantel is fully decked out with everything I could possibly find to throw up there.” – DYING! lol!
Ha, I know, but it’s so true. I literally was running around grabbing random things from other places. Now nothing else in the house is decorated, but at least the mantle is full. ;)
