Summer Fantel

The closest thing in my house to a mantel is the top shelf of my entertainment center. My Fantel. My Fake Mantel. It’s ready for summer.

I started with two Byers Choice carolers.

This one is the Nautical Girl with Salt Water Taffy…

And this one is the Nautical Boy with Life Preserver.

And of course, I added all the beachy goodies that I got from Tarpon Springs.

Coral, a starfish and a sea urchin…

A few glass floats and a Sea Shell…

Two sea fans, one on each side.

And each side has a large finger sponge as well. I would like to get more of them, but they were 25 bucks each. That’s more than enough for this year.

I did spend a good chunk of change on Summer stuff, but it will all be out for at least 4 months, probably closer to 5. There’s a few other cute things I want, but they’ll have to wait until next summer.

Leave a comment. I'd love to know what you're thinking!
