Welcome to the 2nd Mantel Party! Don’t have a mantel? No worries. You can still join us. As always, we don’t discriminate against mantels here at The Stories of A to Z. Console tables, shelves made to look like mantels, piano tops, any-long-expanse-of-space-you-call-a-mantel will work as a mantel! And while we’re defining mantel, let’s work on spelling it too.
Is it mantel or mantle???
Both are correct! Yay! So spell it however you’d like ladies and be free to know that you are correct.
Now, shall we gaze at my lovely mantel mantle? Let’s.
Ahem. Please press play on the song above while you view my post. This happy little ditty was the inspiration for this week’s mantel, so to garner the full effect, you need the song. Come on, humor me. Is it playing? Okay, let me show you around my mantel. Oh yes, it needs a tour guide and mood music because it is just that good…
On the other side of the mantel, I pay homage to my last name and to my adorable paper balls. I showed you all how to make some for yourselves here .
1. Include my button or a link back to this post so others can play along.
2. Please include your name, blog name, and description of your post on Mr. Linky.
3. Please visit other linkiers (yes I just made that up) and ooooo and aaaahhhh at their mantels.
Everyone loves comments (including me)! Have fun! Linky will open at 10pm and stay open until Saturday night. Also, if your post is thrifty, feel free to link it up with my friend Jane over at Frugalicious Friday .
