After the blast of snow last week,
that I was beyond thankful for ~ go here to see why,
and a high of 15 today we're ready for some cozy nights by our fireplace.
Here's our mantel decked out for the season...
I kept with the same scheme as the bookcases and used
stacked books, cream vases, some gold for sparkle
and greenery (door swags I had).
I started on the ends and moved toward the center,
where I got stuck and tried everything under the sun...
wreaths, grouping of large candlesticks, black vase with greenery,
then I stole this large piece from a vignette in the kitchen - it works!
These jars were on clearance at my favorite store,
but not my favorite color, so...
they got a transformation along with all the other cream colored vases on the bookcases,
all picked up at thrift stores.
Since it's Christmas, my decorating is done, I'm nice, and you're my favorites
because you come visit everyday, I have a little surprise for you!

I love games like this, being detailed and all I think I'm so good!
