I keep drooling over mantlescapes on blogs and Pinterest. Some of them are absolutely gorgeous and we all know that I love vintage clutter....so why don't I have one of my own?
I've got the perfect mantel for it. This hundred year old fireplace dominates the house and I couldn't love it more.
I didn't have the stuff to make a summery display, but fall is here and I'm in my element. I've already got ideas for winter.
Ignore the oil lamp. I washed it to get off a heavy layer of dust, which took off the soot and left it looking new and straight out of the box. And it's been too hot to burn the lamp just to add some patina and cover up that shine.
