Oh for heaven's sake, is it Mantel Monday again already?! I'm kind of in a mantel funk, people. A big, ol' mantel funk. It's kind of fun to whip out some holiday mantels. But, these in between mantels? These (yet another) Spring mantels?
Well, if I have to type "Spring blah-blah-yada-yada Mantel" one more time. Let's just say it won't be pretty.
So, this mantel is NOT Spring themed. It's not April Showers Bring May Flowers or Bright and Airy or Fresh and Fun or...anything at all to do with Spring.
This mantel just is. Can't a mantel just be? Does a mantel always have to claim a theme? Denote a season? Celebrate a holiday? Can't a mantel just have one of those ponytail, yoga pants, leave me to my soaps, days?
Well, here you go. Here is our random mantel. Circles. Earth. Mirrors. I'm sure it all means something. But, I haven't the slightest as to what.
I will say, this mantel is looking pretty good for a themeless, ponytailed mantel. Don't you agree? (Just don't tell him he looks almost Springy with the yellow and green color palette!)
What's that? Oh yes! I did mention a challenge...
My friend over at Bliss Ranch suggested, (quite possibly as a joke, because she's quite the kidder) that I let my readers decide a mantel theme (100% paper? reclaimed wood? incredible edibles?) and then I decorate accordingly. And (kidding or not bygolly) I'm doing it!
SO, for the next week, feel free to leave your suggested themes in the comment section and I will sort through them, create a poll and ask for your official vote next Monday. Then, I'll set a date to reveal my mantel (I'll probably do it in mid May, but don't hold me to that just yet!). And, I'll even give your mantel a chance to get in on the action. So, stay tuned for more details!
PS. There are some super-duper awesome mantels linked up at our ONGOING mantel link party! Go check them out!
