Christmas Mantle


Hi everyone!
Slowly but surely it’s starting to look a little like Christmas around here.
Last year, I was finished with all my decorating before December even started.
This year, not so much.
Can’t get my bootie in gear for some reason.
I didn’t plan to decorate the mantle this way…it just kinda happened…and I am kinda happy that it did.
It’s soooothing.
Just throw on a little Buble and I’m set.

I used the same wreath from last year…just changed it up a bit.
Pulled all the candle sticks from around the house.

So in love with these snowman angels.

It’s fun to look back to how it was decorated last year.
Looking back on past decor projects can be good or bad.
You may think, “Aww…I remember that.  I loved the way it looked.”
Or…you may think, “Oh my gosh! What was I thinking?”

I do like last years, but think I like the current one a bit more.

I hope you all have a blessed December.
Try not to get too stressed about the parties, the shopping, the baking, and the decorating.
Take it one day at a time and really enjoy it.
Jesus is the reason for the season.

Very pretty Lu! I have had many decorating phases where I looked back and thought, “Dear God, what was I thinking”? The worst was my “If it’s gold it’s good” phase. If it was gold, I bought it. Add a safari animal theme to that and you can imagine. You are very talented!!

    Having read this I believed iit was really informative.
    I appreciaste you speending some time and effort tto put this
    article together. I once again find myself spending
    way too much time both reading and leaving comments.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!
