Game On!

I needed a little makeover on my mantle...
and went to work today!
I had some old glass jars that were
taking up too much room
in my cabinets.
The first step I took was... took 3 glass jars (all different heights).
I took some old
mini dominoes, chess pieces, and scrabble pieces...
Then I put them into the jars...
arranged them on the mantle with my existing props...

and voila!
I love the organic colors, natural feel, and "game feeling"
of my new mantle.

You would be surprised what fun little knick-knacks
you find around the house...
it'll spice up your mantle, coffee table, or diningroom...
Pull out those 'ol game pieces and
start decorating!!
