A Mantel for Fall
My fall mantels are usually filled with my yearly hydrangea crop.
I mean, I have to put them somewhere.
Why not on the mantle, where I can see them all the time?
This year there are very few hydrangeas.
But I'm surviving.
This year I just threw a bunch of stuff on the mantel.
But it's my best stuff.
Architectural salvages is the best, is it not?
I'd been having these visions . . .
Visions of piles of beautiful cracked and crumbling stuff.
In my cracked and crumbling mind . . .
it couldn't be more beautiful.
Mr Quirky is afraid of it.
He's afraid it will all come tumbling down.
But I'm not.
I'm feeling brave.
I'm only worried about one thing.
I think the mantel needs something in the upper left corner.
I've shopped the basement and the garage.
Nothing's floating my boat.
You tell me.
What does it need?
I'm relatively certain this mantel isn't your style.
But help a quirky girl out here.
