"Do You Want to Build a Snowman" Winter Mantel


It hasn’t felt much like winter this week in GA with 60 degree afternoons, but I am sure we still have some winter days to come here in the south and my mantel is sure decked out for winter!   I am excited to be sharing a winter themed decorating project with you as part of […]

Winter white + green mantel dressed in candlelight


I have been teasing you for a few days with pictures of my winter mantel…  But no longer… today I am revealing it all! The vision for my winter mantel started back before Christmas when I saw Donna at Funky Junk Interior’s Christmas mantel with illuminated old windows.  I knew right away that I wanted […]

Seasonal mantels of 2013
