Spring mantel (plus how to stage your mantel to sell your house)

Hello, hello!  Yes I am still alive.  A bit buried in a cloud of yellow pollen, stacks of boxes, and a to-do list that has actually become a to-do notebook at this point.   I hopefully will have a house/moving update post for you very soon but want to make sure things are truly officially […]
