New mantel decor

I needed new decorations for my mantel since I swiped most of the white dishes I got from the thrift store to put above my cabinets here.... I went to the flea market in Prescott valley and the only purchases I made were 5 ball jars to add to my growing collection. And I really mean growing. I might need ball jar rehab. But the first step is admitting I need help right?

I accidentally set this crate with old books on the mantel when my 16 month old started ripping them up. I'm assuming he was going to use them to start a fire for some sort of sacrifice later. But they looked pretty good up there so I just went with it.


  1. The mantel looks pretty, all of your post have such good ideas, and I dont know how you do it all with kiddos around, but Im glad you do, I always look forward to your pictures!

  2. That made me laugh out loud!
