January Mantel

January Mantel
Originally uploaded by sarahblascovich

For the mantel-loving folks out there, here is what it looks like today. Mid-month, it will probably go ahead & transition to Valentine's Day, just because I love red that much. It also means that I can put out last year's swap goodies, and add this year's to it as they arrive.

Fun things include: our photo by MonkeyBean; an altered bottle made by Dawn, coveted by me, and Christmas presented to me by the Motherina; bottle brush trees Monkey & I dyed last year; and the l-o-v-e-l-y soldered piece from Lennye.

The other side of the mantel is kind of dull, so I didn't even bother to take its picture. For excitement, I signed up for the Decorated Fireplace Mantels group at flickr. Since I'm the only one in the group who's posted a picture so far, we'll see how this goes. I just want to make sure I'm up on the hottest mantel trends (*snicker*). Speaking of flickr - I'm thinking of upgrading to the Pro account. Any thoughts on this? I mostly just want the ability to EASILY organize & label all of my pictures, somewhere other than our skittish hard drive.

Happy Sunday!

I dont use my flickr account nearly enough (who has time for blogs and flickr and facebook and email? LOL), but I have no complaints about my pro account.

Aww, the photo just looks too lovely up there! Radical! I love our flickr pro account, have been renewing it for a few years now---the groups rock, when I have time to check out what's going on. Organizing the photos into sets and collections is fun.

I like the mantel! I hope someone else posts pictures of their mantles soon. If I posted mine it would be the same picture month after month until December. ;)
