I really do not have a mantel...anywhere in my home!
I miss it (because I had one in our old house), but one day, I'll have one in
our bedroom!  Yes!
Until then, I came up with a little homemade mantel which will
also be part of my front porch vignette (Total reveal tomorrow At The Picket Fence!)
I have several photos here for you to see....so please don't get bored...
I just couldn't decide which ones I liked best! 
And...some are daytime...some are nighttime.
First up....Daytime Mantel!
I picked up this white window box at Value Village for $4.99!  Woohoo!
Wouldn't you love to sit here with me and have a nice Chai Tea Latte?
See?  There's two comfy chairs!
Come on over!
or...you could wait 'til this evening and we'll share a lovely glass of red wine!
The old canning jars make fabulous ambient lighting.
My photos don't do them justice!
A few years back, a dear friend of mine gave me these wee
tealight holders that hang over a jar.
I added some Value Village (again) beads that were 69 cents/bag
and went perfectly with my theme this year...as well as the wee burlap ties!
I hit paydirt actually in VV Boutique!
The urn and the twig ball both came from there!
Soooo pretty!
The swags of greenery came from my tree out front.
Is it bad that I want to be included in the mantel party over at
My Uncommon Sense of Suburbia?
I'm going to sneak in anyway....heehee!
Because if I actually had a real mantel...it'd look like this right?!
Have a lovely day and be sure to check out all the beautiful
mantels over at My Uncommon Sense of Suburbia....
they are absolutely stunning!

I love your faux mantel. Very pretty night shot. I don't have a fireplace either, but it doesn't stop me from doing up surfaces all over the place.

I don't have a mantel either and I miss it too. However, I have to say that your little outdoor mantel looks very inviting. Great Job!
