Hello…And January Mantel

January mantel 5 First, Hello.

I have once again been absent. Family, work and some dang TV shows have sucked me in.

All of the Christmas items have been packed away for some time now and have been happily living with the bare stripped-down version of my home.  My one daughter started to complain about how empty the house looked .

So we decided to add some items to dress up the barren mantel.

Granted, we did not add much…but it is just enough for now.

I was out and about and picked up the fern fonts at Target to add a bit of green that I can keep alive.

Everything else was gathered from other parts of the house. The stag with the cool gold antlers I had gotten before Christmas and I’ve been enjoying it in my bedroom.  Now, he has center stage for the time being. He’s from the Christmas decor area but I don’t think of him that way, so out he stays.

At my daughter’s request the barn door I painted awhile ago has again made an appearance.

I really, really want to do something different with the whole fireplace surround but we’ll have to see about that.


Just not feeling anything…yet.

This is my big January mantel.

We’ve made some changes in our laundry room/ mudroom but of course I’m not finished but making progress. I’ll share soon.

Happy day.
