Mantel Friday - Nell Hills 1

The weekend that my BFF and I spent in Atchison, Kansas this past fall was great! We attended the open house of Mary Carol Garrity, Nell Hill's Fall Openhouse. We stayed in a B&B across the street from Mary Carol, and toured many beautiful homes, including hers. This week I'm featuring the different mantels we observed. Next week I will begin to feature Mary Carola great ideas for mantels.

This as you can see, is not a mantel, but a beautiful baby grand that the owner played one afternoon to entertain us. We played "name that tune" and she played wonderfully.

This mantel is in the B&B that we stayed in, called the Tuck U Inn. I should say ONE of the mantels.

This mantel was in one of the homes that we toured.

This is the mantel in the home that Amelia Erhart was born in. She lived first part of her life in Atchison, and came back numerous times after she married.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment. I know you can't wait to see what Nell Hill's has to show for this winter! Join me as I return to see more Mantles at :
