a {Valentine} mantel

Right now our house is in a state of TOTAL chaos! It is literally a hodge podge of partially finished projects...kitchen is getting bead board...trim is primed...borders are pulled down... 3 ugly chairs desperately need to be painted...a new headboard is up in the master, 80% of the rooms needs paint...etc....you get the idea. Not to mention, no less than once a day, I contemplate ripping down at least one of three hideous medicine cabinets throughout the house. Nothing seems to be getting done as fast as we would like, thanks to a nasty bout with the flu that wiped out our whole household, but in the midst of the craziness I tried to carve out a tad bit of beauty.

 I gathered a few nick-nacks from around the house and put together this little mantel display.

I started with an old weathered door for the back drop, then added this cute sign that I got from my aunt when little Ever was born....

...hung part of the bunting I made for Ellery's First Birthday Party


 displayed my collection of vintage hat pins in old milk glass vases!

A pretty little Valentine's mantel don't you think! You would never know that there is blue painters tape and sawdust every where else! haha!
