Linky Party – Mantle – A Pinterest Favorite


I have been pinning things to Pinterest for some time now. I notice something interesting, crafty, eye-catching or inspiring and with a quick flick of a key, it’s pinned to my boards like magic!

One of my most re-pinned pins is this:

Fireplace

It is exactly how I’d like my mantle to look but I still haven’t got around to doing it yet.

Here is my work in progress (please note this photo was taken just before a party so chairs are placed in front of the fireplace..but it gives you the general disarray of my fireplace).

Mantle for party

To achieve my desired look I need to grow the flowers…another item on my ‘to do‘ list, and I also need to find me a birds nest…hmmm, not sure I’ve even been looking for one of those, given that it wold be ultra disturbing to rob a bird and her family of their home! I do have pretty jars and stones or shells to add, so that is a check!

What amazes me most is the sheer simplicity of this arrangement and how many people it has drawn in. Original credit goes to a Flickr account here.

My Pinterest boards have many other wonderful mantle displays, yet nothing has drawn traffic like this one. I am glad the simplicity and freshness of this design has been so popular. I will not recreate it totally…but I will be working on my own little piece of tranquility atop my mantle this summer.
