You know I love a beautiful mantel. And before Layla did her mantel series, before Kimba had a mantel linky party, and before Nester had one too, you and I were all about the mantel. We partied weekly with our mantels. So I am thrilled to see that the “big bloggers” are all-about-the-mantel too! Wahoo for mantels!
I thought it would be fun to have one post which reviewed my year of mantels.
Let’s start with Spring:
Three Little Birds Mantel:
Valentine’s Day Mantels (this holiday deserved two):
I am mental for mantel mantles, so I’m sure I will have many-a-mantel to show you as the year continues! Happy Decorating!
Linking with Nester’s Mantel Party.

Any time I'm shopping for home decor stuff, I always think of A to Z and your Vignette party 🙂
Thanks for compiling them all in one post.
Do you know that because of you if I ever get blessed with a spouse our house must have a fireplace with a mantel? LOL I did pick up a couple of shelves from IKEA the last time I was in Pittsburgh. I plan to decorate them for the seasons & holidays in our kitchen…if my sister ever finishes painting the walls (we're talking 2 months here)!!
I always love checking out your mantles! They are so fun and creative!
You have a wonderful eye Beth. I love all of your mantle creations. I wish you would start your mantel parties back up. Maybe once a month??
You are the "madam" of mantels !:-)
I love your design , you are so creative. Keep creating and assist your readers in designing a mantel -I would like if you would design a mantel from sources from Target, Wal-mart, etsy stores,and other on line resources in order that we can "copy" a mantel for summer . You are really good at using sources we all have easy acess too-twigs, spray paint, shells! So, Beth that is my request tutorials of your creativity 🙂
Have a great week-end .
You are the mantel queen ! You inspire me so much to do something with mine, thank you !

I think it's wonderful that you take full advantage of this spot for decorating and changing around. I have two, but I usually leave everything, except for Christmas time. Every once in awhile I'll add or delete something from what's there, but otherwise they stay pretty much as is.
Oh the spring mantel has me written all over it! Thanks for Sharing

Beth, I think all of your mantels are gorgeous!! 🙂 I wish I had better storage so I could keep more little decorative items around, but I'm not very good at layering….but you are a pro! 🙂
Hi! I'm pretty new to your blog and I just thought I would let you know how much I enjoy it. In looking through your previous posts I really enjoyed the "birds on the brain bird brain?" post as I have decorated with birds my whole adult life and often wonder if I've crossed the line!

I so enjoyed your mantel parties, Beth. First, I had the chance and blessing to meet you, and secondly, I got off my bum and did something with my mantel. Thank YOU!!
Well, you already know that *I* am mental for mantels as well. 😉 I love all of your designs. So pretty! I can't even pick a favorite.
Loved these mantels. Great eye, great taste, Love all of them! 😉
