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.
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,
