simple summer mantel with pretty Petoskeys
Ok, it is just a titch embarrassing to be posting about a summer-themed mantel in – ahem – October. But here you go anyway!
After I gushed about our fossil finds from our summer trip to Petoskey I just had to tell you what I ended up doing with them. Short answer – I did the easy thing and dumped them into glass jars full of water. It really is a very lovely way to magnify the fossils. I have moved on to a different mantel design for Halloween (coming soon to a blog near you) but took these same jars and displayed them on a shelf in the bathroom. So the prettiness lives on.
