~mantles and mercury glass~

i started off the season with the mantle all decked out with greenery like this





it looked great.....for a while

but then it dried out and started dropping needles everywhere.....

and because i am lazy/busy/don't like vacuuming efficient

i decided to change it up

Target had the best tinsel this year, thick and luxurious

so i added white tinsel, which i love with the white frames and silver accessories





mercury glass candlesticks



cute glittered bird - how do you like her unusual perch!



and shimmery silver ornaments tucked in



simple and maintenance free!


and here's a peek at my other mantle



the nativity in all its simplicity and truth

Hi Tracey, I like the look of real nature, and since I have a real fire place it does dry out way to fast, so your tinsel is a excellent choice. HUGS MARY

oh girl! when it comes to maintenance and simplicity...they go hand in hand for me! I love keeping things pretty and tidy!

like milk and cookies
or popcorn and butter

great job!

Love your mantels. Both of them...

I love the nativity stocking holder. So sweet.

Have a merry Christmas, my friend.

Your silver and tinsel looks wonderful. I don't think I would have been brave enough to use real pine ;) Like your nativity as well.
