A New Mantle This Christmas

For each of the past 3 years that we've lived in this
house I've done about the same Christmas decor.
This year I've been inspired to try something
different. I thought I'd start with my mantle.

The glitter trees idea came from Eighteen25.
Same goes for the framed print (FREE download).
For some reason, the red in my print came out
more brown at Sam's Club so I just went with it.

The ice crystally branches were 50% off at the
always wonderful Hobby Lobby. The beautiful
candlesticks were 75% off I think, this summer, too!

The other decor I've had for years.

The photo filter I applied does add to the warm, cozy
feeling -- but I am really pleased with how the mantle
turned out this year. Now my favorite thing is sitting
in front of the fireplace with no other lights on except
the twinkly, winter-wonderland lights on the mantle!

More peeks at my Christmas decorating coming.
In the meantime. I'm looking to share favorite holiday
recipes with you all. So, if you've got one, please click

Thanks. Have a great week.
Hope your Thanksgiving was blessed.
