Ok helpers...Here is a picture of my mantel after I tweaked and re tweaked. I am in the process of making a small topiary with what I have here and if I don't like it I will pick some up on Friday when I shop. So if anyone know where I might find some nice ones, let me know.
Also Comments on this mantel now? Too much, not right, what to do next??

I bought a few of these myself (for the condensed stories) for my guests to read when visiting. I added a stain to the binding of my books and it took the 'newness' off them. I will post how they came out when I find them!

Oh Annie, indeed it does look almost like mine. Wow. I have the same tiles only mine are in shades of browns and creams. My mantel has more detailing but all in all a good replica. Love the way this one looks. Will definitely keep this in my files and I have a big mirror I use at times up there also. Wow, thanks.
