I have decided that one thing I must have in my future home is a mantle. I have it all planned out and I want to decorate it seasonally. I have a shelf at the foot of my bed that is my makeshift mantle for the time being. As I buy and change what I have on there seasonally I put the other things on, and I put the rest in my hope chest.
I picked these out at Target today, I have found that the $1-3 dollar isles are the best for finding seasonal decorations. I have a picture and a candle that stay on my shelf permanently, but I love adding little bits of each season/holiday.
hope you enjoyed this short little post and got some inspiration!
Prayers for Paris and all the people and families effected by this tragedy.
1 Peter 1:6-9
“In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls.”
