I do not have a mantel this week to share as I have shown my Valentine display last week. I thought with Spring right around the corner I would do my homework and share what is new, fresh and exciting for mantel displays. Photo's are courtesy of Martha Stewart and BH&G. It seems to all be about asymmetrical, layering, and repetition. I seem to do all the wrongs of it LOL!!~ I truly believe your style should reflect you and what you like. My Mantel has been difficult to work with because we have the opening in which a TV should be there......I personally do not like a TV above a main focal point!!~ These are beautiful ideas, and my favorite was the pops of yellow, I will do something like this in Spring to bring in a cheery color. Hope this inspires you:) Debbie

O.K. Ladies there are no perfect husbands out there, although mine is about 90% perfect in my eyes! However, why after 15 years of marriage and me continuously asking him to wipe down the sink after he shaves and brushes his teeth......HE DOES not get it???? Ok vent..........what is your pet peeve?? I am linking up with Lee from http://www.headacheshormonesandhotflashes.com, and Debbie from http://menonewmom.blogspot.com. Check out their blogs, they are awesome and entertaining to say the least! I kept my story short and sweet...because that is all it is...yet very annoying. Which by the way after I wrote this post several months back, my husband was good the next day. That was it!~ Seems he has short term memory loss too. I do call him the absent minded professor often. He is a chief pharmacist and excellent at his job!~ However, I do think his career sucks all the brain cells out of him during the day. I do believe I sound like the teacher From Charlie Brown.....Mrs. Donovan to be exact! WHA WHA WHA!~ Have a great day ladies. Hopefully this will be a continued linky party, because I do have more stories:)
Every Friday night my girlfriends and I get together. Girl time is much needed In my ever so humble opinion. It keeps us grounded and SANE!!~ We certainly learn a lot from each other,and value and respect each others opinions. One thing I see in general with Women is, sOme, a lot actually, suffer from LOW self-esteem!! WhY is this I ask? is it society, magazines, super Models looking ever so perFect and thin?? Movie stars Looking flawless at 50? I knOw women younger than myself, that already have had cosmetic surgery, whether it is their BOOBS, tummy tucks, lipo, Botox, which that is not cosmetic, but obviously a look younger quick Fix, I mean who doesn't want to have poison injected in their face to keep that ever so lasting shocked LOOK?? I will be the first to say, I do not want to get OLD Looking, however it beats the alternative so I do what I can to stay YouNg and fit! Of course I see the lines on my face, my neck starting to gobble, the cellulite growing in numbers (MEN do not notice Cellulite) just ask Dr. OZ!! With all this being said, I did tell the girls that I do not EVER FOCUS, on what I do not like about myself....what I do everyday no Matter what, is looK in the Mirror and picK one thing I DO Like about myself for that day! Whether it be I am having a good hair day, my Shirt looks cuTe, I love my New necklace, whatever it is, I leave thinking a positive thought about myself! When I said focus what I mean is, of course as I mentioned above there are things I do not like, however, why dwell on it? I thinK everday we should take the approach of telling ourselves what we DO like, it will Make You feel good, and yOu will inject that attitude to Others. Because all the surgery, BotoX , and whatever else they can suck you into, Will NOt change your Thought process, if you do not looK in the mirrOr and see something positive. In fact I thiNk plastic surgery becomes an addiction to a certain degree. Once you fix one thing, you thiNk well, maybe now I shouLd fix My eyelids, etc... WhaT are Your thoughtS on this? Now for ThoSe of you reading, and you have had anY of the AbovE, I am certainly not Judging You, I am only staTing my OpioniOn here, bUt would Love for you to ShaRe wHy yOu maY have Done this if It where Not medically necessary? I certaiNly do not want to go under a kNife unless I have to, and Let's face it, one time Or anOther we may have to..........
