Christmas Mantel - Show and Tell Friday

Pin It Now!

 
Welcome to Show and Tell Friday!  I'm so thrilled I finally have a fireplace again! It's been so many years since I've had one. 


I couldn't wait to decorate it! I made the stockings out of some blue linen fabric and vintage lace I already had on hand.  I had the stocking pattern for over 10 years and never used it until now!


I used all the Christmas picks and ribbon that I used to put on my staircase bannister at my old townhouse apartment.  I'm all about using what I already have these days!



The mirror over the mantel was my daughters and it's been sitting in her closet for awhile now. I hung it up for now but I will be taking it down soon to paint it white so it goes with my blue and white décor better.  I plan to paint it before Christmas so I'll have to dismantle some of the mantel to get it down.
 

 I bought these beautiful embellished candles a few years ago at CVS after Christmas and they were 75% off.  I just love them!

Your mantle is completely breathtaking~ well done. I hope you enjoy my French Country Christmas kitchen transformation. It took several gallons of white paint.

Have a lovely weekend.

Your stockings are so pretty! You must have more energy than I do -- I wouldn't be able to take that apart and paint the mirror and then redo it! It really looks very beautiful as it is (till after Christmas!).

Hi Cindy! Oh, your mantel looks so gorgeous and the little stockings are very pretty! You're right, the mirror's frame will be so you painted white! Hope you're enjoying your new space and don't have those old problems any more.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia :)
