I kept the mantel pretty clean and simple this summer.
3 cloches, 2 carnations, 1 mini greenhouse and 1 bird w/ cage.
I really like it.
I also like goofing around with Photoshop.
Here is what that same mantle might look like if my house were in Ancient Rome.
Or in a honky-tonk.
Or in a modern magazine.
Or in a bubble.
Or in Atlantis.
Ok, seriously. I have got to get back to work.
