The Stockings Were Hung By The Chimney With Care...

Decorating your mantel for the Holidays really makes your home feel like Christmas.
Some years it's fun to use non traditional colors for decorating, but this year traditionl red and green just felt right.

A little gingham checked ribbon adds to the traditional feel.

I really wanted to purchase some cute  and colorful needlepoint stockings online, but I resisted.

I found these twine wrapped cones at Target for $3.00 each and painted them white. 

Three cozy and soft throws were my splurge purchases. They always make sitting in our family room just a little bit cozier.
This white fluffy throw is embellished with silver snowflakes.

Now that the mantel is decorated, it's on to the Christmas tree.

Hope you're having a good day,



  1. It all looks lovely! I did my mantle first as well. I can't believe I'm done the whole house! It feels good! I added some black gingham ribbon this year too!

    1. Thanks Heather! So jealous that you're finished with your whole house- Hoping I'll be finished in a couple of days.

  2. So very beautiful Pam...your room is so very warm and cozy!....and love that pillow!

  3. I agree ... beautiful, Pam! I love your Christmas mantel (stockings, too) and your added throws and blankets ... a very lovely and inviting holiday space! Happy Holidays!
