ANOTHER HOLIDAY, ANOTHER MANTEL

Can y’all tell that I was deprived of a mantel for years!  I always said that I wanted a house with a fireplace.  Our house prior to this one had a fireplace, but no mantel.  That’s when I realized that what I really wanted was a mantel. 

MANTEL TO FLOOR

My sweetheart accuses me of wanting a little weekend getaway place, just so I can decorate it.  I think he may be right.  I obviously wanted a fireplace, so I could decorate the mantel.

Now that at I’ve been blogging for a few years, I realize that I should have blogged for about five years before naming my blog.

MANTEL RIGHT

When I posted my first blog post, 3 1/2 years ago, I titled my blog “Bargain Hunting with Laurie”.  (It may have been that first Easter of blogging when every blog I visited had at least one of those flying bunnies from Pier One.  I’m still using mine.)

I don’t remember how long I’d been blogging, when I decided I should have named my blog “Chatting With Laurie”.  I’m sure you haven’t noticed, but I do love chatting (maybe more than bargain hunting!) .

So, I changed my blog name to “Bargain Hunting and Chatting with Laurie”.  (I didn’t want to lose the notoriety I had built with the previous blog name, so  kept the “Bargain Hunting~you can stop laughing now!)

HAPPY EASTER

I now realize, my blog name should have been “Laurie’s Mantels”, because  I post my mantel re-dos more than anything else.  But, since I don’t want to lose my notoriety (stop laughing), I guess it will remain Bargain Hunting and Chatting.  (How about Bargain Hunting, Chatting, and Mantel Changing”?  Too much?)

I’m linking this “Laurie’s Mantel” post to the Egg-xellent Spring Party (Isn’t that a clever party name?  Barb’s sooo clever) at Grits and Glamour.  Be sure you go get links to egg-xellent mantels all around Blogville.  Thank you for coming by to see another mantel change at my blog.  laurie
