Fall and the New Mantle

Haven't been here in awhile but I'm joining "Metamorphosis Monday" with my little change.
You can find all the participants and the wonderful blog, Between Naps On The Porch, here:

The New Mantle

This was the fireplace in my family room before. I've never had a mantle. I've always wanted a mantle!!!!

So last week the man that did my kitchen and dining room brought this beautiful piece. We had drawn it out before so he had some time and made it up for me. It is perfect and just in time for all the big decorating seasons that you need a mantle for!!

It is a little "distressed on the edges and I may distress it a little more.

I put a little candle light on it yesterday.
Love it, love it!!

This was yesterday. My house in the fall with this gorgeous weather we are having. I hope it lasts.

Happy Mumday.


  1. Love your mantel Shirley. It looks great.

  2. Hi, Shirley,
    Love your house on the outside.....a picket fence even! :) Your mantle is beautiful. I've always loved a stone fireplace. I like your simple, uncluttered decorations, too.

  3. Wow! That's made a great difference - looks really lovely :o)
    Best wishes

  7. Shirley - I an now officially in love with your house! The setting....the trees....the picket fence.....the fireplace....the mantel.....All totally swoon-worthy, girl! The house looks like it must have some interesting history behind it. So very pretty. And that mantel makes all the difference in the world, too! :) Happy MM!

  8. Your mantel looks great! I don't have a mantel either and it is killing me! My husband and I are searching for the perfect barn beam to turn into a mantel.

  9. Hi Shirley,
    Your mantle looks fabulous. :o) And I just adore your home. :o)
    Sincerely - Trish
