Spring 'tacular Mantel...Outdoors!

That's right! You read the title correctly! O U T D O O R S!! I'm showing you a mantel scape on my faux mantel that happens to be outside at the lake!


I love to be outside...when it's warm...at the lake...so it was natural for me to have the hubby build a faux mantel to decorate...o u t s i d e...





A little whimsy...


Enjoyed the mantel scape while sitting out in the yard...


Brought the much needed laughter from our friends...at first a little surprised...LOL


 I'm joining the spring' tacular mantel party at:   Fox Hollow Cottage
Also partying with:  Cowgirl Up
52 Mantels







See ya down the junkin' road!

Jan, What a fun idea. I may have to "borrow" it. Gotta give hubby a project to keep him busy. Love the lanterns. Lanterns are one thing I always "drool over".
