Fantel LOVE

Yes my fantel LOVE continues…

I’ve told you all about my fantel {fake + mantel = Fantel}.  And now I’ll show you all how a quick trip to Walmart gave it more LOVE.  I was just supposed to be doing  a quick run in for dogfood.  And got sidelined by there Valentine decor.  The LOVE sign and the great heart came from there.  So here’s how I used them.



I kept the white milk glass already up there from Christmas fantel.  I’m still loving it.  Just added the big red heart would you believe it was just $2.99 and it’s super glittery.  The LOVE sign was a bit more $8.97 but I just LOVE it.

It makes my ….

    That’s a pretty fantel if I say so myself! The big gorgeous red heart just pops out against the black and white. So very pretty!

    I love this and especially how it glows on the word LOVE. Romantic! Can I use your Fantle term? I’ll totally give you credit for coining that phrase. Every time I read yours I love it because that is what I call it at home. Ever since we started at home I call it my fake or faux mantle cause we don’t have one either. We have a wood burning stove, with the exhaust pipe, so you can’t do a mantle on that.

    Love the “Fantel” decor! And I’m in love with the white vases. Just seeing the word love used in a room brings a warmth to it. You’ve inspired me to decorate my mantel with letters this Valentines Day! It will help to satisfy my love of typography. Thanks!!!!! xx #sitsblogging

    I love the idea of a fantel. I lived in so many apartments with no mantle or fireplace and would have loved to have a great place to display decorations.
