Mantels {Times} Three.....

Oh My, how I LOVE mantels....

I Love the cozy feel they give to a room.  I personally love a simple arrangement with lots of layering on the mantle. Here are my three mantels....
This is the one in the master bedroom. I Love laying in bed, reading a magazine in winter and looking at the
fire. I'm not totally set on my arranging on here.



































This is the living room mantel, it is massive. It was kind of tricky for me to get it done and actually look good. I'm happy with the decor. Again, lots of layering. I think layering gives it a much more informal feel. We are so not formal around here!





































This is the hearth room mantel. I love this little spot as well. Again, so informal. Just about everything on here is from a flea market. I love to find different cheap items to use and be creative with.

I hope you enjoyed my little tour of mantels. Go check out the NESTER and see the other amazing ones.

First of all I am jealous that you have three mantels and I have none! ;) But other than that -- great job!!! What is that last star made of?? I am trying to see if but I just can't tell. It is very unique!! I love it!
