Christmas Mantel

 So happy to share with you the first Christmas mantel in our family room. It's the first because the mantel never got decorated because the tv and other electrical accoutrements were inside the niche and it didn't make sense to decorate in front of that...kinda like lipstick on a pig? lol!

The niche is very large and deep, so two poinsettias were perfect to fill up a lot of the space. Yesterday I showed you the burlap stockings I made.

The book-box and the poinsettias are the only accessories that I purchased. I shopped the house for everything else.

I love old books, don't you?

Remember the Blogger Block Party is  going on all week

Hope you have a great day!


  1. Very pretty Pam! For some reason I always think about putting poinsettias on the mantel AFTER I've finished decorating!

  2. Pamela, this is gorgeous. What a great area to decorate now. Love the layers and highs and lows and those stockings are perfection.

  3. Pam your mantel looks beautiful and I LOVE the stockings you made!!

  4. Looks so festive. I love the jeweled (?) fruit.
