My Christmas Mantle 2012

It's about time I posted, especially something Christmasy huh?  I've been busily working on all things Christmas- gifts, decor, tree, outside stuff and a big honking church party.  Today I finally have my mantle ready to show.

I kept things pretty simple this year.

I used my fave mercury glass owl and the paper mache' letters I used in our mantle last year.

I started a collection of bottle brush trees last year, but found a few more this year and grouped them all together.  I'd like to tell you they are vintage and I've picked them up here and there.  Um no... I bought them at Walmart.  :)  Whatever.  I still love how they look all lined up!

I included my glitter tree from last years mantle too.  

And of course I had to include some glass Christmas balls in an apothecary jar.  I love them so much!!  The Santa free printable is from Heidi Swapp.  

And there it is, my Christmas mantel for 2012!!  


  1. This is awesome! I love love love all the different kinds of trees. I like when things are collected like that. This week I put together a snowflake garland from a collection of different snowflakes my kids made.
