Or another title of this post could be Oh Crap, I Should Blog About Something Today but I Got Nothin' So Let's Take Some Pics of the Mantel. But that title is kinda long, so Winter Mantel it is.
(I can't tell if our TV screen is really dirty or if it's my computer screen. Probably both.)
Fridays are kinda "my" day. Well, Finn and I, at least. Ryder is in school (praise the LORD! These snow days off are killin' me) and Bryce goes next door to Mitch's parents' house where his Mom does "pre-school" with him. It gives me the morning to do something or nothing at all. This morning, after Finn's 20 minute nap (seriously the kid requires like no sleep), we ran some errands which of course included stopping in at a thrift store. I picked up some small embroidery hoops and "made" that little orb you see there on the mantel. Yes, my craft projects are pretty intense. It took about 12 seconds to put together.
I needed some height on the left side of the mantel, so I stole these bread boards out of the kitchen. They'll promptly return to their respective places in the kitchen after this post, seeing I use them everyday. I liked the wood tone of them, that's why I snagged 'em.
And lest you think I live in some neat-freak obsessed museum of a home, behold:
This mess is right under the mantel that looks so nicely staged. And I don't even want to show you my kitchen right now. Let's just all ignore the messes and fix up our mantels today, okay? DEAL.
Happy weekend, friends!
