Our mantle was a craigslist find from last December! We do not have a fireplace, but I had been looking for a cute and fun way to hang our stockings because my parent's came up the week before Christmas to celebrate with us! I found this one on craigslist and loved the distressed look and how they had put shelves in the opening to hold picture frames or anything you might want to put there.
I really love old windows and have been able to find several free ones in our area. I simply picked one out of my stash, cleaned it up, and proped it up on the mantle against the wall. I also have a slight obsession with bunting! It is just so stinkin' cute and fun! I made mine with twine and some fabric scraps that I cut into flag shaped triangles. I simply hot-glued the triangles on the twine leaving about three inches between each one.
The old camera and "The Joy of Cooking" cookbook belonged to Daniel's grandparents! I love using old family items because they have a story to tell of your family's past.
