Working on the Mantle....

Hi Bloggerettes!  I worked on my mantle over the weekend.  I'm still not sure if it's the look I want.  Who knows, by next week it might look entirely different.

Just lovin my new mirror.  I haven't hung it yet, it's just leaning and I might just leave it that way.

Just added a few more things to the mantle here.  Beaded stands, bulbs.....

I love these sweet little houses.  I just plopped them on a tray, added some fake snow and instant snow village.....
Okay, that's it for today.
Now get out there and create, write, sew, paint, photograph, craft, knit, crochet, repurpose or find something wonderful and share it with all of us.


I'm linking with Nifty Thrifty Tuesdays at Coastal Charm! and Wow Us Wednesdays! and No Minimalist Here Open House Party

It's like Mantel Monday today, Sissie! It seems everyone is doing theirs and I did mine a little bit, but will be redoing it. My mantel in the new place is smaller so I need to regroup! Love the houses on the tray ~ it is an instant vignette!

Cindy said...

The mantel is breathtaking! It just sparkles with the mirror and the silver and the green ornaments. ( i almost said green balls, but it just sounded so wrong)anyway....
I love the statuesque look of the candlesticks, just beautiful... and the green, who knew green and silver was the best combination ever!
