Christmas Mantle

The giveaway is still going on so please enter here! This is one of the cutest gifts and I am so glad to share it with you!




My Christmas mantle is traditional. Remember I like the red with my colored walls and all the sparkle and magic that Christmas brings.

I waited years to have a house with a fireplace! There is just something that feels like Christmas when it is burning.


I actually had a mantle made in my other house so I could hang stockings on it at Christmas. I now hangs over my entryway.
And I have to have my topiaries.

I guess you can say I have an obsession with them.


Santa"s sleigh and reindeer with white lights finish the top


and yesterday I showed you something that was used in a store display well the drum below was another thing my friend Donna gave me. She got it from a store! To me they are some of my favorite decorations. Mainly because I don't see it in everyone's home.


There is a different stocking for each of us. Our animals have some too! They hang in another room.

I am starting to feel the warmth of Christmas....Can you?

I am bummed because my lights went out on my tree so I will be buying more. I hate fooling with lights, they are always a pain! So a shopping I will go!

It is supposed to snow today! Love shopping for Christmas when it is cold. Keeps me in the spirit!

Don't forget to enter the giveaway!

Lovely, Deneen! I adore that sleigh and reindeer. We had Christmas tree light issues, too. Unfortunately we didn't take care of them last year, so this year we had to remedy the problem. Blech!

Lovely Deneen...that drum is great! And - ah - lights...very touchy subject in Nod....We went up until the day before Christmas last year with only one strand on the tree lit. Unfortunately, I think it was finally the straw in the Christmas light saga that broke the DH's back....no sign of lights anywhere this year yet.... :o( robin
