My {TV} Mantelscape

Ever since Beth over @ The Stories of A 2 Z started her Mantel Party Every Friday, I have been itching to be the type of woman who can re-make her mantel every week to show off to the world...I, am, however, not that type of woman...I can get up the courage (and the time) to remake it every once in a while, but sadly I lack the gusto to change it up weekly...I can show you something that is, as Beth would say "mantelesque in nature" that will be my addition to this week's Mantel Party! Here is my "mantel" above our entertainment center. There isn't anything fancy about it, but I wanted to come to the party!!! ;)

Simple, just the way I like it!

My sweet little lamp and birdcage, which you can read all about here, along with one of my favorite family photos.

My blue Mason jar, filled with some twigs from the tree outside my front door...and my sweet little robin's eggs (tutorial here), all nesting and covered with an overturned stem-less wine glass. Miniature birdcage from Hobby Lobby, and an old vintage book from my husband's grandfather.

Just a picture of my sweet boy and a few things to fill in the spaces.

Come see the other lovely mantels at:


  1. I'm so glad you linked up to join the party! Thanks because it was looking a little lonely and your sweet birds are a welcome addition!

  2. I am like you about changing my mantles....They pretty well stay the same for a while before I decide it is a time for something different. In this ole farm house I have three mantles
    Love what you did with your pretty things

  3. Hello Grace...
