Do you change the look of your mantle for the different seasons?
I never did before, but, in the last few months, I have been trying to make little changes for the different times of the year. My husband built the mantle last year and that gave me the initiative.
I try to use items I already have and maybe change a thing or two.

This is what my mantle looks like now

Bought the clock at Kirklands a couple of years ago.
My best find ever!

My Fleur de Lis orbs, also from Kirklands

Lots of space up there to play with!

Last spring just added some flower bunches and a small set of ceramic jars

Change the flowers for some orange orchids during the summer

Fall 2010

Christmas 2010

 My first mantle decor ever.Very simple.

Still learning from all the wonderful blogs out there.
Thank you for visiting!


  1. Beautiful Maria! I'm trying to start a blog myself, but playing around with it right now. I'm not sure on some things. I know practice will make it come together soon. LOL

    Love looking at all your decorating! I still say you need a "spot on HGTV ....

  2. Tina, thank you! HGTV!!!! LOL
    I would be scared to death! LOL
    Let me know if you need some help with your blog.
    With the help of my daughter (the "computer genius") I was able to find some websites where you can get free templates and other "goodies" to start your blog. There is somethings I still want to add to mine.
    Email me if you need that information and I will be glad to share it with you.
    Can't wait to see what you come up with!
