Equestrian Christmas Mantel
This post may contain affiliate links. Please see our disclosure here.
I decided to create an equestrian themed mantel this year. I was trying to think of something different & unique that wouldn’t cost much money. I bought the roping, some Christmas berries & everything else I found “under this one roof!” I raided my mom’s library for the picture & I had the horse tack in the barn. One of the beautiful things of four generations under one roof, I have lots of places to steal things from!
Not really sure that my great gram’s antique chair has ever seen a saddle before!
Do you know how long it took me to get that fire built!! My 5 year old said, “mommy, do you know what you are doing….that’s not how Gramp’s does it” In the winter, my dad builds my son a fire every Sunday morning (this fireplace happens to be in his playroom). The kid has it made!
I love the Sephia effect!
What do you think? You like the Sephia look?

Very warm and inviting! Love the antique sephia photo. Would look great printed and framed. And your little man is lucky to have that cozy fire built for him every Sunday. I'd pick that room for a playroom too.
Hi Jessica, Beautiful!! I love the equestrian theme.
Beautiful Jessica…I love it!
What a wonderful mantel and fireplace. It is so warm and inviting. Stopping by from A to Z.
Beautiful!! I love that red plaid blanket and the fire looks so cozy!!!
Stunning…. seriously. And I love the Sepia look; don't you wish we could do that in real life, sometimes?! lol…
I love these linky parties. How could there be one ugly home in America, with all of these beautiful links?! I am so glad I stopped by your blog. Off to take a look around!
I had to pop over and check this out – my bestie is an equine lover. This is gorgeous! I like it in full color and sepia equally. Happy holidays!
