While my mom was here I had to take advantage of her decorating expertise!
I never was completely happy with the decor on the mantel, and I was just stuck. I didn't know what to do with it.
Then JJ came to the rescue!
Remember what the mantel looked like before?
Well here it is now!
I actually put something in the frames!
A verse that dad would continually remind me of was 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18.
"Be joyful always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances."
I wanted a constant reminder of that verse so I just got photo paper and printed it from our little printer, then Presto for less then $5 I have four portraits that I can easily change out.
My Sister in law introduced us to the wonders of Anthropologie! I will forever be grateful. Mom got me this W sign from there. I just love it.
And this little church reminds me of the church Mr. Genius and I got hitched in.
