HGTV.com Mantel Feature


I was contacted by a sweet lady from HGTV.com in October…

asking to feature my Rustic Winter Mantel from earlier this year.



I was so thrilled about it all… I couldn’t contain it and shared about it on Facebook the day I found out… so some you may already know…LOL!

I just wanted to share it again on the blog!

It certainly makes a girl feel good and I am so thankful to God for such a sweet blessing!

I thought it would also be a good time to post some of my past mantel displays,

as well as another link to some of my display tips… in case you struggle with how to get started in making your own display.

Thanks For Stopping By!

Trip to Maine… Part 3


Well folks… this is the third part of our trip to Maine.

I surely couldn’t show it all… there is so much to do and see so I’m just touching on the highlights.

First of all… Hurricane Sandy finally reached us Monday evening.

A Trip to Maine… Part 1


The hubs and I went to visit some family in Portland, Maine recently.

All of the landscape photos were taking by my husband (maybe 2 or 3 by me)…

he did such a good job.

So lots of pics ahead.


Can I just say… it is absolutely GORGEOUS up there!
