I like to decorate my mantel for upcoming holidays and seasonal changes. I think this drives my Hubby crazy but I enjoy doing this.
And that little champagne tree I found at Kohl's after Christmas is just perfect for my fireplace ledge. Our fireplace is at a weird angle so it's hard to try to figure out how to arrange stuff.
And it appear that others like to decorate their mantles too. I recently found a blog article about 65 Valentine's Day Mantels . I hope you enjoy the link. There are a lot of creative ideas there.
