Our Bathroom Christmas "Mantel"

Have you seen The Lettered Cottage Christmas mantel link-up? Holy 400+ links!
Serious mantelpalooza happening over there. Lots of drooly inspiration. (Like this.)

But I couldn't link up. Cause I ain't got no mantel.

No, I ain't got no mantel
No mantel, no fireplace, no mantel to care for me
 
I'm so sad and lonely
Sad and lonely, sad and lonely
Won't some sweet mantel come and take a chance with me


Cause I ain't so bad
Sad and lonesome all the time
Even on the beat, on the, on the beat


I ain't got no mantel
No mantel, no fireplace, no mantel to care for me

Baby I need some mantel love


Or do I?

I've had this fetching vintage drawer burning a hole in my bathroom. It was salvaged years ago from Larry's barn and loved back to life just in time to save me from my mantel coveting.

I wish I could tell you I meticulously planned its Christmas debut, but we both know that's not true.

And I love it.

I love it, in all its chippy, green, cheery perfection.

I love it next to the striped shower curtain.

After all, why should the living rooms get all the attention?

Show offs.
