Christmas Mantle........

My mantle is finally decorated for Christmas!  I did it a little different this year and I like it but I'm kind of missing my more rustic look with my reindeer and woodland Santa.  I'm going to leave it this way this year and try to get used to the change.  Change is good right?  It's not that I don't like it, I do, it's you know, just different!  Here are the photos.































The 2 white snowmen, I made.  I've made a lot for gifts and to sell.  They are fun and easy, and  if you know me, you know I can't sew! They are put together with a simple blanket stitch and the rest is all hot glue.
The white curved shutter is a find from one of our old dealers that I got for $5.00 and painted.
The gray pallet behind it is a Watertown find that I got for $5.00. It wasn't for sale, just leaning against the wall, I talked the guy into selling it to me, minus the huge spider that was living on the back!  The little snow house in the middle, I won at the Gathering Show a couple of years ago.  They always have drawings through out the day and I actually won something!  The candlesticks I got on sale at Marshall's for $10.00 each and the garland was on sale after Xmas for 75%  off.  The reindeer are from Target, after Xmas on sale of course!  Well, that's my Christmas mantle for this year, hope you all like it!

Till next time.....
Rebecca
