Mantle Decor

The mystery is revealed... I've decorated the mantle in our new home. Remember the small "S" from here? And I made the big "S" and the squirrel art, the acorn jar was a gift from dear H a couple of years ago and the twig leaf was a decoration from our previous house. Since we are forest-y folk, it all suits us perfectly.
We love this fireplace. We use it all the time to stay cozy.

A complete living room makeover is on the way too... Because our home is a rental - and all white, it gave us a clean palate to work with. But, there are limitations... such as, lots of windows and no curtain rods! So, stay tuned for further decorating updates.
This is what our mantle looked like at Christmastime. It was still odd to see 4 stockings this year. But it was also great to see 4 stockings this year :)

P.S. Thank you to One Pretty Thing for featuring Charlotte's Scottish Birthday Party in the Birthday Roundup yesterday!

It IS odd to add that 4th, isn't it? Cambria just now seems like our kid... funny!

Very nice...I like how clean it looks :0) With a little zing of color too!

Great minds think alike...I've been working on my mantel as well!

Almost forgot...that is so neat about the Birthday Roundup!

It looks great! I love it. I love the Christmas look too. Sorry I missed that one.

Still seems strange to me to say "2 grandchildren"!! I love it, it just seems strange.

Very, very nice. You are making it a home. I see now that the mystery shape was part of the "S." I should have recognized it from our skype call. It all looks great. (I thought the squirrel was going to be a part of Henry's natural theme.)

It looks great, Diane! So good to see that you are settling into your new home.

The gnome tights are ADORABLE; I have to say I would happily put those on my girls... TOO CUTE!

It is mighty impressive that you are still making time to craft and decorate with your three-year-old and infant in tow all day! My crafting days are a thing of the past. Maybe I should pull out my scrapbooking stuff tonight... Thanks for the inspiration!

As always, it's great to catch up with you. Have a great day!
