As i'm reading up on some of my favorite blogs today
i'm noticing that everyone is talking about their mantels.
everyone must be on the
same page today
and I missed the memo
Then I realized its because there's a
going on in Blog land
and you don't want to miss it!!
and since I certainly don't want to miss the party...
here's our mantel
There are two things that I
don't change at Christmas
One is our family tree
the other is the mantle
beyond that everything else is far game
The mantel stays the same because two years ago
we had the kids write this in their own handwriting
on a big sheet of plywood
and it means so much to us.
Plus lets be honest...
it's huge and won't fit anywhere else.
Shabby Chic Stocking Holders
Perhaps that tree on the right has been hitting the eggnog
It looks like it's leaning a little
maybe I should fix that.
The mantel I try to keep very neutral and simple to
balance out all the color from the nutcrackers.
But I think it needs one
of those mantel scarfs
(is that what you call them??)
like The Lettered Cottage has on hers...
I'm completely in LOVE with it.
looks like i'll be hitting the fabric store tomorrow
Keep you posted
Please go visit
and check out all the inspiring mantels!!
