Christmas Mantel 2012

Hello everyone hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving with Friends and Family Or like me it was quite, Tia and I kinda hung out and watched movies and decorated the house. I found the cutest mercury glass battier operated lights at Target I just had to have them, got the last two boxes. A couple of years ago I hung snowflakes form the ceiling and thought I would do them again this year they look so pretty at night. I'm still having trouble finding some things with the color I want to do, But hopefully I will find what I am looking for. Or I will have to just work with what I have again this year.. So here are a few pictures to kick off the Holiday season.. 











thanks for stopping by and be sure to check in and see the rest of what I will be doing around the house..

Hugs
~~Pattie~~

I knew I would love your Christmas decor! Love those new mercury lights you found too. They're perfect on your mantel! Love the mix of cream and silver with the greenery. I have alot of that in my decor this year too. I just worked on my mantle tonight and did the outside of the house today. I'm already pooped! I think we'll start the tree tomorrow. Love the idea of hanging snowflakes above your mantel too. It's the perfect finishing touch.

I had to come back & correct the comment above! lol After I posted, I thought, geez, I hope she isn't offended by my saying "understated". I was using the word in a good way. It really is a beautiful mantel!

Becca said...

Gorgeous Christmas mantel, indeed! I love the soft palette and the colors you chose ... mercury is one of my faves! Happy Holidays.
