I get excited really easily. My sister wrote a post about it once and she’s the same way. So is my little sister. So is my mom. We’re just a bunch of easily excited people.
But apparently I’m not excited enough to notice that I recently posted my 100th post…missed that….and that I passed my blogs first birthday. How lame.
However, today I am excited about something. And that something is a fireplace. Our current house doesn’t have a fireplace, and although our house is currently for sale, we have not found a new home and so I have no idea if it will or will not have a fireplace. But I REALLY want a fireplace.
I saw this image on Orange Beautiful today:
And I thought, even if I don’t have a fireplace in my next house, maybe I could build an awesome mantle like in that picture. Maybe not white, and maybe not in wood, and maybe nothing like this particular mantle, but this got me excited and really inspired me! Who needs a fireplace to have a mantle? Or maybe I’m totally off my rocker on this…do you need a fireplace to have a mantle?
Either way, I think that a mantle like the one in the picture would look beautiful even without an actual fireplace. And I think it would be fairly easy to build.
So today, I’m SO excited about fireplaces. Mostly because I’d finally have a place to hang my Christmas stockings!
I’m off to find more pictures…
