A FIREPLACE MANTEL
surrounds a heating unit. Kelly has a window that she found at a flea market for $5 sitting on the mantel year-round.
She broke out the glass, so it makes for innovative shelving, where she props up various seasonal elements. During the holiday season, it’s always Christmas at Kelly’s home! She has a calendar set to Christmas Day and decorates the rest of the mantel with a variety of paper paraphernalia. “For my décor, I’m drawn to old notebooks, game score pads, old sewing patterns, greeting cards, postcards and seed packets,” she says. She uses these items as filler around bigger pieces.
