My 'Go To' Mantescape


Hello, Dear Ones!
Well, after taking all the bunnies and eggs off the mantel it sat nekked (Texan for naked).

 After looking at it all empty and nekked for a week, I couldn't stand it any more!
Sorry, I forgot to turn off the TV and I was watching "Play Misty For Me" when Clint Eastwood was young, squintty and not chopped up! :)
I'm getting sidetracked here. 

 My creative juices had drained out.
Probably because I drank too much peach tea.
 So...I went with my 'Go To' mantelscape.
 Ta dah! This works for me when I can't think of anything else to do.
Traditional and kinda what you'd expect.
Nothing special, nothing cutesie, not over the top. Just simple and easy.
 
 Poked my olden clock upon some books.
I did get a little creative and turn the backs of the books toward the mirror.
I liked how this looked. See, my juices are flowing again just a little bit!
 Here's where I go edgy and actually placed a little nest with eggs on the books!
It's still Springtime and nests and eggs always work.
 Then I grabbed a pair of my Staffies and poked one down on each side of the clock.
I know brown and white ones would look better but hey ~ I'm being edgy here! 
Anyway, these are my very first Staffies! I'm attached to them!
Aren't they as cute as can be?
 Now I know you've seen these urns many times and you're going to see them many times over again.
I love them! Can you love handpainted urns you ask?
You bet your paint by numbers you can! :)
 When I'm lazy and almost all of my creative juices are gone ~ this is my 'Go To' mantelscape with a little edginess tossed in!
I am really a wild one! :)

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Real Wild One

And I like wild fun

In a world gone crazy everything seems hazy

Oh yeah

Gonna break loose
Gonna keep a movin' wild

Gonna keep a swingin'
Baby
I'm a real wild child
