This year's Christmas Mantel

I LOVE LOVE LOVE having a mantel. It is truly my seasonal canvas! If I didn't enjoy it so much though, the mess would get cleaned up a lot faster.  Do you ever get in one of those "Oh I just don't know..." and there it sits for a day sort of moods. This mantel went together fairly quick when compared to some others. It was fun though and I am definitely happy with how it turned out.

The mantel is where the framed peace art found its home

And now for the "lower mantel." We have this old railroad shipping crate. It was displaced a couple months ago when the living room was rearranged. I am thinking it works well here! :)

The village was one of our summer yard sale treasures.  I PROMISE you it was a thrifty purchase!!!!
The bigger church is one that we have had.

Christmas is such a magical time of year! Thanks for stopping by.  Hope to see you again soon!

Linking up here:


  1. The mantle looks great. I love the old record albums too.

  2. Like I keep telling you, you have a God given talent for the things you do...Wonderful job on the mantel!!!! Want to come to my house in Arkansas and decorate? lol

  3. No Dawn she has to come here first and do mine..lol It looks sooo pretty..nice job..I need to gear my behind in gear and get the decorating done..

  4. Girls, Thank you all! Dawn and Jeana, as long as you have a room full of odd stuff that doesn't necessarily go with any one time of year, that would be soooooo much fun!!! Get that decorating done before it is time to take it all back down.

  5. pa! where in pa!? i'm 20 mins outside of philly, and i love finding local bloggers. it feels like there's an awful lot from utah or texas, lol.

    love that village all aglow! super cute!
