The Christmas "mantle" is done!

on ,


Introducing... our Christmas "mantle"!

I have to say that I went through a couple revisions before settling on this design. That's just how I roll! :) The plan was to keep it simple this year. The white framed art in the background was just moved from another wall.  I think it gives the mantle a nice neutral backdrop.
Nutcracker statues were added to give a little pop of color and play off of the red stockings as well and provide a little interest.
As usual, everything here was either a sale/clearance item, thrift store find, or generally inexpensive. I don't like to pay a lot.
I purchased these Pottery Barn stockings a couple years back and ordered some extra blank ones for our future children. This time next year, that blank stocking will say "Daniel." Pottery Barn also sells a matching tree skirt, but that sucker never goes on sale -- I check every year after Christmas. I may have to buck up and just buy the thing one of these years... I just HATE paying full price! :)
A little bling here and there.
And the star as the focal point to complete the look!

Lots of love,
