Winter Mantle

What is better in the long winter months than snuggling under a warm blanket by the fireplace and reading a good book. I love this time of year for this reason. I also get a little anxious for Spring to come but, I thought I would share my winter fireplace mantle. I have a stack of books (some of the classics, of course. Who doesn’t love Little Women?) With a 3-dimensional block with pictures and wording that describes my favorite people…my family of course!
The wood lettering was painted black and then scrapbook paper was mod podged on the front of some of the letters. I left three of the letters plain black and covered four of the letters.
I added a bluebird to the end of my letters so that it would remind me that Spring is coming next!DSC_0115
So now that Valentine’s is almost here, I guess I should change the mantle to everything Valentine’s. Which is fine because a splash of color around here is a welcome change to the grey dreariness outside.
