i am so thrilled that our fireplace and mantel are featured in the current issue of cottages and bungalows magazine.

you’ve got to pick up a copy at your local grocery store or bookshop, or online. it’s full of fun creative ideas.

for the mantel, i tore fabric into strips and hot-glued them to cone shaped foam in various sizes.

i picked fun colors to brighten up the room and make it cheery.

i also picked up some candlestick holders and small plates at our local $1 store. I glued them together and spray painted them white to look like vintage milk glass. they turned out so dang cute–and they only cost $2 each and make a big impact!

i hung a ‘merry’ banner across our thrifted mirror and hung stocking ornaments in the corner. it’s all so happy and fun it makes me want to skip thanksgiving all together. well almost, i love thanksgiving sweet potatoes.

today and tomorrow we are offering a special on our brand new stocking ornaments! use code stocking15 for 15%. such a keepsake–i love it! click here to shop.

and hop over to cottages and bungalows FB page and ‘like’ them. thank you cottages and bungalows!
