Christmas Mantel

I just finished decorating my mantel for Christmas and thought I'd share it. 

Mercury glass candles ... I didn't have the easiest time finding mercury glass this year so this was a challenge to pull together.

I picked up this print of Notre Dame in Paris.  They have these all over for tourists (like me) who like worthless things that are probably made in China.  I love anyway.  Love my glittery birds too.  

Tree number two ...

I'm thinking about doing three trees next year and moving my new white tree to my dining room.  I think it would make the house look magical.  Just don't tell my husband.  He isn't always as enthusiastic about my brilliant ideas as I am.  

Linking to the Mantel Party on The Lettered Cottage.
P.S.  Sorry the pics aren't so sharp.  Black hole basement + non-fancy-pants camera + lack of photography skills = not so hot pictures.


  1. Very pretty! Love the white tree. It would look pretty anywhere. I love the Paris print too. Just beautiful.

  2. It is very beautiful! It's a White Christmas! :)
