Mantel















The hubs built this beautiful custom mantel about 2 years ago. I have stared at this mantel, which is quite big, with nothing on it for 2 years. I knew we needed to decorate in a big way. The hubs would have happily lived life for the next 30 years without decoration on the mantel or anywhere for that matter; we have a lot of blank walls in our house. These walls were expensive, so I won't settle for just any ole thing to hang on them. I need them to be perfect.

I couldn't take the mantel any longer, so we set up a date night on Saturday. We went to dinner and took in some quality time at Pier One. We walked in the door and the first thing we saw was the picture. It was staring at us with a red sale sticker. We both knew we had to have it. We carried it around Pier One aimlessly trying to pick accessories to go with it - accesories on which we could agree. After waht seemed like an hour, we settled on what you see in the picture. A complete and total improvement that won't have me staring at the blank space and thinking annoying thoughts!
