My January Mantel: Simplify

I recently posted about my goals for 2013 which if you missed it, this can be found HERE.  The bottom line for me for 2013?  Simplify
I have been working on many home organization projects with this goal in mind, but I stopped long enough this weekend to recreate my mantel. 
I was Christmased out…no more red and green please! 
I needed to SIMPLIFY.
That feels much better.
I’ll be back tomorrow with a new makeover!
I can’t wait!
And later this week, I will share some of my
organizing projects with you.
Should be fun!
Have a blessed week everyone!

  1. Simple but beautiful – I love the blue…makes me think of winter….

  2. Very nice! I did the same thing, much simpler with blues and whites. I also have that exact same ampersand!

  3. One of my most favorite words……love your mantel. xo

  4. Great mantel. I have one more tree to go, I feel like I will never get done. I am so tired of the dust from the Christmas stuff!!


  5. i love the goal centered mantel, it will be easier to keep those ideas in mind when they’re looking right at ya!

  6. So pretty! Love that the whole design fits so well with your goal.

  7. Beautiful! I love the colors.

  8. Love the pretty, fresh blues and whites!


  9. This is beautiful! I wish my mantle was upstairs where I could decorate it and see it all the time! Thanks for sharing!

  10. I had never heard of picking a “one word” new years resolution until this year, but I think it is such a great idea. Simplify is something I could definitely work on too. Did you make that chalkboard or did you buy it? I love it.
