My Christmas Mantel This Year

TGIF Friends, I hope this finds you all doing well, staying warm and getting ready for the fast approaching holidays. I have many Christmas cards still to share with you, so I had not planned on posting any of my Christmas decor this year, but just by chance this morning, I happened across the Blue Cricket Design Christmas Mantel Link up on my blog roll, and I thought why not. I will post a picture for you all to see. I was longing for some new decorations this year, as my tastes seem to have changed over the years, and I would love to have my home reflect that, however, this just didn't happen to be the year to make that happen. I am still using the aged classics for the most part on my mantel. Maybe I will find some sales after Christmas to add to next year's mantel.  I noticed in my pictures that my garland needed straightened out ;)  oops...I have since fixed it, and it looks very uniform now.  It's always good to have a second eye checking out the decorations.  
I hope you enjoy and are having fun decorating your home for the holidiays.
Thanks for visiting me, and have a wonderful day : )

Hi Carolyn, your mantel looks beautiful. I love the rich greens and reds. I used what I have too, times are tough and we have to use what we have, right:)

Have a great weekend and keep warm friend.
