Colorful Christmas Mantel
After years of having all my snowmen on the mantel -- I wanted something different this year. A few of the items I had, but most of it is new this year and very affordable, too. The candles are battery operated and are from Sam's Club -
The wreath I had and it was from Pier One many years ago -
The presents, large green ornaments, and both the white and burgundy poinsettia garlands were new from Menards this year -
The bottle brush trees I have had and the white tree fillers I thought would be nice here since I hadn't used them yet -
I really like this look and am glad that I switched things up this year -
Love these candles - there is a 6 hour timer on them, too --
Little shelf next to the mantel -
The extended look with my Mittens & Skates tree in the corner -
I hope that you have enjoyed this year's mantel -
Lucy is enjoying the decorating this year. She has discovered great uses for the totes that appear for a couple days to unpack in our home -

I have been loving reading other blogs for a while. I thought that maybe if I was accountable by posting on a blog that I might accomplish more. We will see! Here are some of my current "loves" (besides blogs): decorating for all holidays, crafting, cooking and baking, traveling, shopping, some reality shows, Dancing with the Stars, Real Housewives, getting together with my "YaYa" girlfriends,and most of all My Family!!
