I'm slowly getting started decorating for Christmas. I just need a good swift kick. Until I get it all finished I decided to show you my mantle.
I splurged this year for the pre-lit garland from Lowes. It has such a more natural look about it than cheaper versions. Since my daughter is not a pink fan I did shades of red.
I added some floral picks and other extras from things left from previous craft projects. Ivory bead garland with a few balls for a more feminine touch were added.
I found this pair of angels at Marshall's and paired them up with my red candlestands from Kmart last year. All in all I'm really pleased with the result. Next time I will have the tree ready and hopefully be able to show it before my daughter tries to de-pink it!
I added 2 "presents" that I made from pre-drilled glass blocks and a string of lights. I hot glued the ribbon on to make a quick easy holiday craft anyone could do.
Hello and welcome! I'm a forty-something wife, mom and work full time plus. I have always been in love with vintage romantic things. My most favorite thing is the victorian era.In my spare time I love to go to yard sales and antique stores. I'm always on the search for my next treasure and hope you take the journey with me.
