Winter Mantle {Northern Cottage} Style

I so enjoy switching things up….

I LOVE our fireplace

so tall

so solid

so rocky

I’m also very digging having the contrast to that dark rock with something lighter in color and yet solid enough to pair well with the substance of the fireplace overall

Here’s what I’ve come up with for now {no telling how long this will last around these parts!}

We recently had a dinner party and one of the attendees didn’t get ‘junk’. 

When she saw the fireplace – she started to…


and said ‘well that’s interesting!”
(in a very nice way – she just didn’t get it)

You guys ‘get it’, right? 

It’s not strange to have a window above my fireplace at all, is it?
