Christmas Mantel 2012
We finally pulled out the Christmas boxes from the attic today and got busy with decorating. First on my list was to get the mantel done. I don't know about you, but I have quite a few "collections" of Christmas items and I feel compelled to pull all of them out every year. There's just something about all the memories and sweetness wrapped up in each one that makes me have the mentality of No Christmas Ornament Left Behind. I get real sappy and sentimental this time of year. Seriously, I can hardly make it through "O Holy Night" without getting choked up, or any other Christmas carol for that matter. I'd never make it as a soloist.
I added in a strand of white lights and my sweet snowman now have a warm glow about them at night. I haven't decided whether or not to add in greenery. I may leave the mantel as is or do a little more tweaking. I'm thinking the grapevine tree is needing a little snow or something too. I hope you'll come back to see my other collections. They'll be showing up in the form of vignettes around the house. So, tell me, do you have multiple Christmas collections or do you stick to one theme? Do you change it out each year?
