Show Us Your Life-Mantles

Hello again!  Kelly is featuring mantles this week in her series of home tours.  And I'm really looking forward to getting some fresh inspirations.  Unless it's the holidays, our mantle is pretty plain.  I painted the niche above the fireplace a dark brown to feature the picture of the kids but other than that, I'm not sure how to accessorize it. 

 Here's a close-up of the mantle.  I have some simple accessories and one of my favorite family photos.  It was taken at a really fun restaurant, Buca di Beppo's.  I love Italian food!  The food is served family style so you get to eat a bit of everything.  We had a great time!

So there you have it, our mantle.  Now I get to see all of yours!
