We've been here for a month now and so far the only thing on my mantel was an orange bucket that holds Catie's pirate gold while it's not being played with. I wanted something up there but couldn't bear to spend much money. While I was in Utah we stopped in at the Tai Pan Trading Company. That place is awesome and full of really reasonably priced home decor items. There were lots of things that I wanted but I was responsible and only bought one thing, a carved bird.
I decided to find a cute print to go with it. Now the frame isn't awesome and the easel is really special but until I get a better frame it'll do.
I figured I'd change out the print for different seasons. I found this print at eighteen25 and you can download it in a bunch of different colours.
So it's not much but it's better than it was before and it's a start.
