My Christmas Mantel
Christmas is a time of peace and therefore I have decorated very simply this year. It's been such a busy time and I have spent the fall getting everything placed just so in our new home, that to change it all to decorate wasn't a priority. I do love to decorate the mantel however and was very grateful to have one this year.
A wreath hung on a jutting stone...
A bit of candle light
And family treasure give it warmth and meaning.
Natural fresh flowers
and a bit of whimsy finish it off. Stockings will be hung elsewhere this year.
A gift of a scented candle and fresh evergreens scent the foyer and set a mood
And simple touches here and there hung on knobs evoke the simplicity I wanted
