If you didn’t know already I LOVE Christmas! Here is my XL mantle this year.
oh how I love it!)
I didn’t want anything to over shadow my tree this year, so it is very neutral. Love how my NOEL banner looks in this photo!
I threw a huge chalk board up there with a note to Santa, a large mirror and of course some Merry Christmas burlap ribbon.
I found this great angel (resin with a dark bronze finish) at Ross a few years ago and bring her out every Christmas. Extra pine cones from my Pine Cone Wreath were scattered on fresh greens (I dug from the trash after a church party!). I also peppered in a few candied fruit ornaments for color. A beautiful Christmas book called “When Jesus Was Born in Bethlehem” has a place of honor, where it belongs (this book has beautiful illustrations, a must have if you ask me).
Well, there it is, ready for Christmas Eve and a visit from you know who
(from my kids point of view, coming down the stairs Christmas morning)!
