Mantel Vignettes?

Happy White Wednesday Everyone!  First I wanted to show off  this lovely book my friend Mary gave me for my birthday.... (she created it) You can visit her at her blog Chanels Shabby Rose
 My white selection is short this week  but I just HAD to show you a close-up of my new (old) mantel
 I've never had a mantel before, so I'm beyond excited to decorate it
 Pardon the mess you see below. This is just where I've been shoving  placing everything while I'm fluffing up each room for Spring.  Can you see underneath, I've placed a huge mirror behind the mantel?
I'd love to hear any of your ideas for sweet mantle vignettes or links you can show me for ideas. You know...with varying heights, etc. I love shabby, french, cottage, romantic, etc. I do have a mirror above the mantel too, but I may be replacing that one since it was already there and the height is not quite lining up.

Well, time to  link up with Kathleen at Faded Charm Cottage for White Wednesday. Can't wait to see all the fabulous whites! Thanks for hosting Kathleen!

love the book...love the mantle even more! What fun you'll have decorating it and changing the vignettes as the seasons and holidays change. (I pinned it!)

I love your mantel! I have one in my living room and office and I don't even have a fireplace! LOL! I love the mirror you have in there! I (currently) have a large stained glass arch window in there.
