Happy 2012 Mantel!


2012. Can you believe it? Weren't we supposed to have hovercrafts by now?

Remember Y2K? That was 12 years ago. Remember when 'N Sync took a "short break"? That was 10 years ago.

Sheesh. 2012. 

Okay, I'm over it. Here's your mantel. Happy Mantel Monday




Don't you think every Mantel Monday should have candlelight?


Did you know you can write on ceramic with dry erase markers? Maybe I'm late to the game, but that info rocked my world.


My 3 disco balls are ornaments from my Christmas tree. Perfect for a New Year Mantel, don't you think?


Why are there so many questions this Mantel Monday? Don't worry. You aren't being graded on your answers.

Happy 2012!!

  2. Looks Great!! I just started following you. I don't have a mantel. I have a ledge by our front door that is usually bare but I was thinking of decorating it once in a while. I need to start looking at stuff around my house and see what I can do.

  4. I like that wreath! It would have matched my "icy crystal" theme for the holidays nicely!

    I like the varying heights and items used to display the disco balls.

  30. I love your mantels! My husband and I have just moved into our first home and Im trying to get in idea of what the basic pieces are gonna be to work around. But my main question is how did you make the crystal wreath? Im sure somewhere you told how you made it but I couldnt find it. Im so sorry!

    1. Thanks, Brooke! I've actually had the wreath for YEARS! Every year I think it won't survive another, but it keeps holding up. I purchased it at Walmart...probably 7 years ago. Not much help now, I'm afraid! ;)

      Thanks again!
