mantle madness

This little space is a struggle for me to decorate.  I really love the white stone on our fireplace, but I still don't know if I'm completely happy with the decor and the arrangement.  I like to add a little something up there for different holidays, birthdays and any special occasion.  Things move around a lot up there, but thought I would share how my mantle looks today :)









Thanks for taking a peek :)
Hope your weekend is filled with happiness!

  1. I love your white fireplace, but then again I love any furniture or room that is white. There is just so much possibility. Love the look and can't wait to see how you change it over the holidays.

  2. Love the simplicity of the decorating. I think sometimes people over do the decorating on a mantle. I love the white stone! Visiting from Kelly's Korner.

    1. Hi Ashlee, I got the topiary from Restoration Hardware. I've also seen similar ones at Target, Home Goods and Ballard. Thanks for looking :)

  7. I am so pinning this... we have a large stone hearth where a potbelly stove used to sit- been begging my hubby for 6 years to put up a mantle... I am showing him this and having him install it- You made My Whole Day!!!

  8. I love the simpleness of your mantle. You can never go wrong with white. It is just so crisp, clean, and inviting. I am with you on always changing up my mantle (holiday, b-days, ect..) As much as I love switching it up it is definitely a lot of work...but so worth it :)

    Hope you have a great weekend, Becky!!

  11. How did you paint your fireplace? I like how there are variations of color and not just stark white. Do you remember what paint colors to used?

  13. I'm interested to know how you painted your stone fireplace, also. Mine is a similar looking stone but it is not real stone. It's very old and needs to be freshened up.
