Mantel #1 of 2012

I am ready for something green…

I am ready for something shiny…

I am ready for something fun…

I am ready for something inspiring…

I was ready to take the Christmas decorations down…

I don’t really know why…

I love the holidays…

 this year just seemed different…

I can’t put it in to words…

but I’m glad it’s a New Year.

    Oh Debbie, this is wonderful! It has all the elements that I love…burlap, chalkboard, mercury glass. The quote is perfect for the new year too.

    I was on vacation and the moment I came back I wanted to take all the Christmas Decorations down. I now have a blank mantel that I am not sure what I want to do so thanks for sharing yours. Love the chalk board idea above the mantel. Happy New Year!

    It’s beautiful Debbie! Serene and fresh and perfect for welcoming in the New Year. :-) I’m going to be tackling mine today so this was great inspiration!

    Pleese come do mine 😉 It’s back to the grind today and the mess I have made flipping storage and rooms. Ahhhh reality.

    It looks lovely, and you KNOW I am loving the frame and that little hootie. CUTE!!

    I am always a bit sad when it is time to take down Christmas decorations. My house does not feel as festive. Your mantle looks great! Maybe I should try to mix things up.

    Me too. I couldn’t change out my Christmas decor fast enough. I’m going to check out the bookpage flower further. It looks like a cute idea and something I could manage to make! .

    I felt the same way, Debbie! Ready to get my home back to normal and declutter. You and I had the same ideas when it came too our mantels. Clean and white with a touch of garden green. :) Looks great, girlie!

    What a wonderful quote! I have not seen that before and I think I may have to steal it for something… I also love the layers on your mantel! I have only had a mantel for almost a year and need to find things to decorate it with. I see some nice inspiration here!
