Merry Mantel

It's all coming together which is about time since Christmas is only 2 weeks away!
 All the decorating is pretty much done except for the tree which we will get Saturday.
Today I thought I would share our mantel with you guys while I clean up the mess of boxes that need to be put back out in the garage.



I went with sort of a vintage theme with the bottle brush trees and my vintage Santa mugs.








This year the stockings are not hanging from the mantel again because of the holders being so heavy I am afraid that Ms. Brooklyn would pull a stocking down and it would fall on her head so until I know she will stay away from the stockings they will stay up high on our bookshelf.






I brought out my moss covered wreath and hung it from my vintage window and added a Peace ornament for a little Christmas sparkle.  




I love the simplicity of the mantel with all of the decorations everywhere I need some simplicity  here and there.





Don't forget to enter my Christmas Giveaway here, I will be back on Sunday with the Winner
Now get out and shop everyone, we only have 2 more weeks to go!!!
