Friday's Favs...Back to School Mantel-Take Two!


One of these mantels is not like the other.
When I showed you my "back to school mantel" last Friday I really liked it, but...


When I was out and about with my two oldest grandkids the other day,
 they wanted to stop and look at the Goodwill.
Yes, I have made my 10 year old granddaughter and 9 year old grandson into thrift-ers, 
much to Papa's chagrin and probably their mama's and daddy's as well.


They're the ones who thought that I must buy this adorable little oil painting,
and for only $3.99, how could I not agree?
I'm thinking it's the perfect finishing touch for my "back to school mantel".
I'm lovin' it!


Well, it's almost Friday, friends.
Have a HAPPY, HAPPY Friday
and
a BLESSED weekend.

  2. I think it is sweet that you get to spend so much time with your grandchildren. I never spent much time with my grandparents and my son rarely saw his. I think it's a shame. Grandparents impart a special kind of acceptance and love.

    1. Yes, me too! A year ago the two older ones were in Africa, and now everyone is back near us. It's a blessing!
