Mantle Linky Day at The Nester's

I'm participating in The Nester's Mantle Link-up today.

Although I don't have the most interesting of mantle scapes, I do enjoy it.  Dislike for dusting prevents me from going overboard on total number of objects (that would then require removing for the dreading dusting process), so I have to select and edit carefully.



The two bronze crosses and the little bronze thingy in between are fairly new to the mantle.  I put one of the crosses on the mantle for Christmas and liked it so much, I decided to hunt down another one for a vignette.  The little thingy I had somewhere else in the house.  I like things in odd numbers so the little guy completed the look for me.


On the opposite end of the mantle, the candle lamp has been there forever because I just love how it sparkles when the candle inside is lit.  David's head has been there off and on for a long time too just because I think he's very handsome. 



The fresh flowers are not usually there, but when I saw them pop up in the backyard I couldn't wait to bring them inside to enjoy them before the temp dropped down again and  frosted them.


Thanks so much for stopping by to see my mantle.  I'm off to check out everyone's beautiful mantle scapes.

Visiting from ASPTL this morning and am loving all the ways we creative ladies find to update & decorate our mantels.

Wonderful mantel display...I put lots of items on my mantel...I invested in a feather duster to keep things tidy between display changes. Come say hi!

Hubba, Hubba...ok I'm just gonna come out and say it because no one else is...your mantel is Moody & ROMANTIC in a non-frilly girl sort of way. So different than my taste ans yet I really like it...Now that's good design!
