A YEAR (or so) IN THE LIFE (of a Mantel)

Do you enjoy decorating your mantel as much as I enjoy it?
They're instant gratification...sort of. 

I thought it might be fun to look back at a little more than a year of mantel-scaping in my house. Note the number of tweaks I usually take to get it "right!"

Sorry, I cannot help it. I feel a "take two" coming...
The hearth is the heart of the home!

Word for the Day:
Jeremiah 36:23
And it came to pass, that when Jehudi had read three or four leaves, he cut it with the penknife, and cast it into the fire that was on the hearth, until all the roll was consumed in the fire that was on the hearth.
