My style for Christmas is more on the rustic side. As you saw from my mantle, I also like a little sparkle! Usually I keep the sparkle in the dining room but since it is going thru some changes, I tried it on the mantle this year. My decorating consists mostly of pine cones, greenery, Santas, deers, nutcrackers and snowmen. This is my "shabby" white cabinet with some of my favorite Holiday decorations.

This deer family I got years ago when my oldest was about the size he is in the above photo, on our way back to NC from visiting the grandparents in GA, we stopped at a outlet mall and he saw them and had to have them, I think the set was around $5.00
My sister got me this for Christmas last year
