  1. I saw your fall mantel design Lookie at what I did. And fell in love with it. Can you tell me where you purchased the lamp on the mantel. Thank you!

  2. Not sure how I missed this post, but WOW!!! Thanks so much for featuring my mantel and printable!! I’m so excited to be featured among so many talented ladies!!!

  3. I love the mantel ideas! They are so cute! I feel inspired to rev up my mantle now! Thank you!

  4. Wow! So much inspiration. I thought I’d decided to give the SAS Interiors mantel a go. But there are too many great ones to choose from. The simplicity of the Potpourri Halloween Tree Mantle and the whimsy of Lookie What I Did’s Halloween display are equally adorable.

    • Ghetto Idealist » Aren’t they all so great!! I love seeing everyone’s ideas. It’s such great inspiration!!


  5. OMG…I think I am still in shock that you featured my mantel! What an honor!! (I seriously just emailed my parents and sisters about it b/c I was so excited! haha!). Thanks again!!!

  6. Okay.. Now I’m depressed that I don’t have a fireplace and mantle.. Unfortunately for me, in Florida they are few and far between. :( Boo!

  7. Wow, thank you so much, Jenn, for featuring my Framed Mantel. That and the Facebook feature just really made me quite giddy. 😉 Wishing you have a lovely, fresh new week!

  8. Hi Jen! Thanks for featuring me on your FB page:) I am blown away! Not to mention all the amazing mantle ideas featured here….thank you for stopping by my blog:)

  9. I am LOVING this. I have tried a few different fall decor items on my mantle but cannot get it to look good. Now I wish I had like 10 fireplaces to decorate. 😉 I’m definitely going to use these ideas for my mantle this week! Thanks for posting!

  10. Jen,
    Thank you!!! I’m honored to have my fall mantel featured by you… there were so many beautiful ideas this week. Thank you for hosting the weekend wrap up and taking time to look at our projects. You are amazing! Thanks again :)

  11. Love all the creative ideas! Thanks for including my fall mantel in your collection! I’m honored!

    • Angela @ Our Family Journey » You are welcome!! Your mantel is beautiful. I loved seeing so many wonderful mantels linked up this week!!


  12. Thanks so much for featuring our mantle – we actually did a bit more work on it since you featured us, if you get some time check it out. Loved all the ideas you picked out, now I have so many ideas running through my head!

  13. Thank you Jen for showing my mantel and giving me some inspiration from the others. There are a couple that I am pinning! Thank you!

  14. What?! MiMi just sent me a text to tell me you featured my mantel! I am flabbergasted. Thanks so much! xoxo

  15. I’m hopping on over from “Dear Lillie” and love your blog! So many craftastic ideas!!! LOVE IT!!! I am your newest follower!!!


  16. I bet Viv never thought her mantel would be featured…she has always wanted to KILL that thing. But it DOES look lovely! :)

  17. I do love them all, but I have to say I’m partial to June & Bear’s elegant vignette :)

  18. I love that at least two of these mantles are not mantles at all. It makes those of us who live a life devoid of such things hopeful that there can be pretty little scenes throughout the house!


  19. So many great ideas!

  20. Jen, thank you so much for giving us such great forum to showcase our passion.You are not only inspiring but also a pioneer paving the way for others….xo
