Speaking of frozen, icy things...spring! Since we bought the house (and once I got my act together after having baby #2 a year and a half ago) I've been doing seasonal mantel decorations. Started out pretty lame with 4th of July 2013 but I've been working on it. I really, really try to use things that I've got around the house, but if I think to stalk Michael's for 40% off (or even better, the rare 50% off) coupons, then I might buy one or 2 items...usually something floral-y. Some elements of my mantel decor are permanent and then I just sub out seasonal stuff to fill in as needed. Please note the exceptionally classy child-proofing strips on the edge of the hearth. We usually have a couch on one side and chairs on the other to protect the corners. Graham's a little daredevil!
