Back to School Mantel


A little late perhaps, since neighborhood kids tromped off to school earlier this week, but it's still a bit early for Halloween.  Do you like my bouquet of freshly sharpened pencils?  Do you get the reference? 
So this is my back to school mantel.
I tried hard to simplify, since I have been known to run amuck, with the belief more is more.




Just a stack of books and a trophy filled with rulers.
One old school picture, one Apple.





Here's the overdone July mantel I replaced!

Simpler is better, right?
