Christmas mantle

Up first in my Christmas home tour is what I call our mantle.

It is a shelf in our dining room and it is one of my favorite places to decorate!!

I jumped on the snow globe bandwagon and put one together.  I love the way it turned out!

I reused the JOY letters from my mantle in years past.
The greenery is from Joann. 

I purchased the tobacco stick star at a craft fair here in Nashville many years ago.  
I tacked lights around the edges of it.

My obsession with chalkboard continues with this Christmas chalkboard!

What is your favorite place to decorate in your house?
