So before we moved to Corning, I knew we were buying a house with a mantle. The whole idea seemed romantic. Decorating it season to season, a fire place, and all that jazz.
Then we moved in and THE MAN spent 2,000 hours getting the media cabinet set up. In case you are wondering what that is like, imagine trying to turn a calf around in a Momma Cow with your arm...oh never mind. Needless to say, it was painful, people were grumpy, and wires were everywhere. Add in having shingles and I decided making it pretty was a project for another day.
IN FACT, I kept telling THE MAN nicely to just get all the things working and I'll work on situating the wires, etc. very soon. ;-)
Turns out soon was really much, MUCH later. In fact, so much later everyone celebrated when they came home one day and things were finally tweaked around. It started with that owl that I happened upon at Home Depot. It randomly caught my eye and prompted me to pull out the fall stuff.
I then went back later for a second glass silvery pumpkin for the other side. I'm pretty pleased with it, which doesn't mean it will stay this way for long.
Now I'm in the mantle decorating business, I have already started thinking Christmas....maybe topiary....maybe big letters...
Happy Friday! The oldest and I are off to the Corning Museum of Glass to see what kind of trouble we can get ourselves into!
