A Mantel by Request

It was requested that I blog about my mantel.  I do love it! My mantel has special meaning to me as it is made especially for me by my Mr. M.
At first I was like I can not blog about it, it isn't my project. I was then told that many a bloggers have made posts about things they personally haven't made.  Even I have to admit, that I have blogged about things I personally haven't made.  When you scroll down to older blogs, you will see nature! The good lord made and I took pictures of. Hope you all enjoy!   Cindy
I went to Florida for a short vacation. Mr. M stayed home and when I got home, I was surprised with  this mantel! What a wonderful surprise!  He had asked me a few things before I left,  if I was to pick out certain corbels what would I choose.  I said well, truthfully, I would like something elegant but simple.  This is my special beautiful mantel my husband graciously built and surprised me with. 
      I am sorry the picture is a bit blurry.. Thank you Bobbie for suggesting this. I am so blessed to have you as my friend.
