Merry Mantel

This weekend I finally got to decorate our mantel for the holidays!

Introducing our 'merry mantel'.

** read this post to the tune of "White Christmas" ** Why? 'cause it's fun that's why ;)


I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
I'm dreaming of a black mantel...















































Just like the ones I used to know
That we recently painted as you may know...

Where the tree tops glisten and children listen
The autum look is has been erased, sparkle now sits in its place...





















To hear sleigh bells in the snow
This large art print is the new star of the show...

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
I dreamt of creating a 'look for less'...

With every Christmas card I write
So enter this frame that was so wrong it was right...

























May your days be merry and bright
To get sprayed a nice and shiny white












































And may all your Christmases be white
And this amazing print from eighteen25 was so right...





































I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
I tweeked the colour a bit I confess... (green to silver)

Just like the ones I used to know
And a scrapbook paper matt for show...












































So may your days be merry and bright
May your mantel be merry and bright...





















And may all your Christmases be white
And may your decorations be festive and light...
*** sidenote, I made that topiary ball at a past "Christmas Craft Night". What's a Craft Night? Read about a past one here. Now back to the music ***

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
I'm dreaming of a sparkly garland... 





















Just like the ones I used to know
draping under an adorable reindeer...












































May your days be merry and bright
Christmas isn't right unless you have a dove...

























And may all your Christmases be white
perched above the stocking of a little boy that you love...












































Merry Chrismtas Everyone :)

Update: The mantel got a new addition since this post - Head on over and meet Sparkle the Reindeer and read about how he came to join the mantle here :)
