I am truly impressed with all of you who have been
planning for weeks...months...how you're going to decorate
your Christmas mantel.
You've perused pinterest for ideas and inspiration...
You've even planned a theme... Amazing!
Let me share with you how I go about decorating my mantel...
I put away all of my fall decor so I have a lot of bare surfaces.
After hauling out the boxes filled with all my Christmas stuff,
I sit down and stare at the mantel and the boxes...
feeling very overwhelmed...wondering what in the world
I'm going to do this year.
I whine a bit...okay a lot...to my daughter about being uninspired.
The one thing for certain...I like little white lights on this vintage mantel.
I finally decide to make the mercury stand
and cloche, filled with vintage baubles, the centerpiece of the mantel.
Thanks, Megan, for filling the cloche for me!
I decide to use pink as my accent color with the silver.
Somehow it all comes together...sparkly and bright.
And what's really amazing in my lack of a plan...
I still like it!
One down...two more to go...Yikes!
I'm so glad you stopped by for a visit,
