I love this! Your garland is darling and the topiaries are the perfect touch. Sure wish I had a Trader Joe's closer.

So pretty! I had a friend who hated taking her tree down every year, so she began leaving it up all year....she just changed decorations! She had a Valentines tree, Shamrock tree, and decorated it for birthdays even!

Shannon Fox says
I like how it's really subtle. It does not scream HALLMARK. (like mine tend too) LOL.
That book is a tear jerker for sure. I read A Walk To Remember. On a plane.
Yep. Sob crying. Not cool.

I love your mantel and the back story. I cried my eyes out the first time I watched the movie. I own a copy, but I haven't watched it in a long time.

Very pretty! I love all of the layers. The Notebook is the best!! Here from TT&J
Hi! I am visiting from Think Pink Sunday. I LOVE this idea! I actually haven't taken down my Christmas decorations over my mantel because I have nothing to put there. I am going to try, and I mean try :) to replicate this. I love the chalkboard - I actually have one in my sewing room that I could 'borrow' for a while and I am going to spray some bottles too. Thanks so much for linking this up!
Jessica, this is GORGEOUS! Oh my word!! I want to copycat! Loooove the Notebook too :)
