I am so glad you stopped by
Thank you! I know you are busy and
these days are just crazy.....
Today I am sharing my favorite
Our Christmas stockings
We have a mantel over our fireplace
which is a great place for the
I have a set of stocking hangers that are
silver snowflakes and they fit nicely here.
The issue I have every year is what to put
on the mantel WITH the stockings.
I have tried greenery......it looked OK.....
I have tried Christmas-y Mary Engelbreit boxes.......
they looked OK.....
I have tried ribbon all twisted with red beads......
it looked OK.....
You get the picture, Glitterinas, don't you?
Nothing looked so good that I loved it!
This year I am trying the collection of
nutcrackers my Mom spent several vacations
and shopping trips collecting.
The nutcrackers always had a special
place....as their numbers grew they moved from
a little table in the den to a larger table and finally
all the way across the piano!
As I unpacked them and arranged them
I felt giddy about how good
they looked on the mantel.
Why hadn't I thought of this before?!?
I stacked some books along the length of the
mantel to give some of the shorter, handsome guys
a little height....
So, what do you think, Glitterinas, do
these guys look good standing proudly on the mantel?
Next, came the snowflake stocking hangers and the
Four on one end.....
.....and four on the other!
A space in the middle for something
I'll share next time.
Oh hooray.....I like it!
Not crowded....or too busy....
.....plenty of room for all these Christmas pretties!
Can you see the lace draped
over the window frame at the bottom
of the picture?
This is an idea I have for my little green trunk.
As the pumpkins rolled to be put away, I wanted
to continue to use my green trunk
I'll share more next time, Glitterinas!
Until next time....
