winter mantle.

mantle show

i have mentioned the spaces that aitor and i set aside in our home for rotating display in the past. currently there are two - the kitchen shelf and the mantle. and i have hogged both! don't worry, the kitchen shelf is being turned over to aitor any day now and i have to find a new (hopefully permanent) home for my portrait gallery.

above is the winter display i made as a mantle show. in it, i spy work by shannah burton, sarah mcneil, holly procktor, margie oomen & summer hamel.

i finally decided to photograph it because i made that little crocheted heart bunting last night during an hour of late-night television half-watching.

mantle show hearts

the hearts and chain were made from this super-luxe wool and cashmere fingering weight yarn i have for another project. it was really enjoyable to work with and i think it all turned out quite nicely.

here are a few more detail shots of my altar to the bleak months:
