My Valentine Mantel

Since the bungalow we are renting had the fireplace removed and bookcases in the living room, I am using them for my mantel.  We have a small space but it is so cute!  I have to believe that we are in the right place because all the events that led to us to move here happened with concise timing.  We are with family, healthy and happy.  We still have challenges, bills and worries but we take one day at a time and cling on to each other.  Our oldest daughter and family are living with us so I try to make the holidays fun!  My nieces and other grandson find the newest arrangements on my "mantel".  So have a look...
