One mantel I decorate. The faux fireplace mantel in the dining room!
(the other 2 mantels are occupied by a) Mister's TV and b) cats)
The extent of my craftiness is exemplified by the 2 trees over the candlesticks to the left.
I took a cue from Kathy at Sharing Shadymont and took an antique sewing machine drawer, filled it with mason jars, greens, and twinkle lights. Each jar has Epsom salts for faux snow - I could also sub out tea light candles.
My 3 Santas come out every year. A bargain buy years ago which Chickie was just a little tot.
The stockings are hung over chair backs with care.....
Blessings and Comfort, as our prayers go out for those affected in the Sandy Hook tragedy,
