Decorating my mantle for every holiday and season is one of my most favorite things to do. But for some reason this year, I just couldn't get anything put together for it.
Then I saw my mini silver tree and knew it would look perfect on one side. I have a pretty nice collection of Shiny Brites and I gathered the small red and green ones for this tree. I even have a topper for it that goes with my Christmas color theme.
I couldn't find my vintage spaghetti Santa Claus bank no matter where I looked and I think missing him was the reason I couldn't get my mantle done. But this morning I went out to the shed and looked one more time and I found him! And then my mantle just came together!
I found the vintage Thermos with the blue lid this week at my favorite thrift store and now I have a nice little collection that works for Christmas decorating. My vintage Santa mugs are always a favorite decoration with the bottle brush trees.
I made the little deer print this year specifically for my mantle. I love little deer of any kind and would love to add more to my collection.
I am so happy with how my mantle finally came together. I wish I would have gotten it done sooner so I can savor it a little longer!
I wanted to share a few more of my Christmas vignettes around the house. These vintage children's ice skates are darling with my favorite color adorning them. I hung them on a wreath holder and they look great in the living room.
I decorated my dining room in reds and blacks this year. I am going to do a fun tablescape that I will share next week, but here is the hutch all decorated.
I filled my trough box with some greenery and stained my triangle Christmas trees with some vinegar/steel wool stain.
My favorite white cabinet features this pretty vintage white vignette. Bleached bottle brush trees are the star of this show!
My vintage gate got a dose of Christmas too. A garland of red poinsettias, a rolled paper wreath and another one of my vintage ceramic trees helps make my living room feel festive.
And my coffee table has a reindeer decked out in Christmas reds and greens. It may have taken me awhile, but I finally got all of my Christmas decorating done and I love it all!
