New Mantel Decor {aka Shrine to Clara Bow}

It's a Mantel Party!

Yipee! There's a Mantel Party going on over at Nesting Place. I'm a little late to the party but made myself redo my mantel so that I could join in. Because if I didn't, my Easter stuff might be up for another month. So thank you Nesting Place for motivating me. Here's my newly decorated fireplace mantel. Which really turned out to be a shrine to Clara Bow. 

You know, it's a nice relief to not be decorating the mantel for a Holiday. That has been going on since Halloween. I'm ready for a break from holiday decorations. But come late July, I'll start getting that Halloween feeling and will be anxious again to decorate around a holiday. 

Join in the party over at

and as usual...I'm linking up at

Hi Nita...

My friend, I do love your fireplace! Everytime I see it...I just swoon!!! Your Venetian mirror is fabulous and I love how you added the print of Clara Bow! Also love how you pulled that pretty lavender from the print out by adding those gorgeous mercury glass vases full of lavender blooms...sooo pretty!!! It's just gorgeous!!! Ohhh...and I see one of my favorite chairs in the photos too!!! Love, love, LOVE your fabulous home, Nita!!!

It's been a little while since we've visited! I do hope that my note is finding you well my friend!

Warmest wishes,
