Mantel Wishes

I wish I had a mantel...not a fireplace, but a mantle. Sadly the two so regularly go together. Here in Louisiana, it is absolutely not necessary to have fireplace. Fireplaces here are most certainly an item of decoration for most of their lives. And with this decorative luxury comes responsibility: cleaning it and maintaining the chimney. Too much work for me--just give me the mantel!

Here are some lovely mantles that make me want to have one sans hearth!

  1. I adore the amazing contrast of the second shot.

  2. Oooh these are lovely. My friend has a mantle. No fireplace in it, but a mantle. The people that lived there before her built it. Lucky her!

  3. These are all lovely! I really like the second one.

  4. Susan & Amy: The second photo is so pretty and classic, I love it too!

    Dionne, I'd love to get my hands on an antique mantel and use is for decor. One day!

    Gratefully yours,
