**Ok...little bit of trivia...is it mantLE or mantEL?
Well, I have been wrong...so sorry about that. I always try so hard to use proper grammar.
According to the internet vocabulary on google:
Though they stem from the same word, a “mantle” today is usually a cloak, while the shelf over a fireplace is most often spelled “mantel.”
So, onward and forward...with something learned today lol. **
Some of you who have followed my blog for a while will remember that this is what our family room looked like after we took possession of the house. Actually, this room is clean compared to what it looked like when we took possession...a time I don't want to ever go back to. It took us 3 entire days to clean out this house with everything that was left. At least two large dumpsters full!
We have had this old milk can for years...we have two more around the house in the front entrance and in the hallway. I think they definitely add a vintage touch. I can't wait until it is warm enough to light a fire here. Soon I will be changing this mantel again to add a touch of fall decor to the room, but my decorating "clock" tells me to wait until after Labor Day...not sure why. I may have to drag it all out of the store room and take inventory to prepare because I don't really want to wait!
We finally got some rain today...so thankful.
Hope you are having a great day. Oh, almost forgot to mention, my camera seems to be making my pictures kind of fuzzy so I apologize. I need to figure out what setting it is on...and change it!
My old camera that I loved was dropped on the mountainside in Colorado this summer and soon after was placed to rest...bummer.
