It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas
'round here !
Usually I struggle with our mantle.
It is WAY too long, among other things. But this year it came together really well.
Even Big Daddy loves it.
And his stocking!
I'm here to tell y'all after almost 30 years together he is still my Santa Clause and we still stuff each other's stockings on Christmas Eve.
It all started this year with this big wreath.
And I mean REALLY BIG.
Like, too big for my living room but they frown on returning live wreaths at BB Barnes.
Plus, I just love it.
You can smell this thing all over our house.
I really feel bad for folks who can't have live evergreens inside there house.
This feather tree I found this past weekend while I was on the Biltmore Estate with my two Mamas, my Aunt Wanda and Aunt Carolyn. All of their Christmas decor was 50% off :) I wanted to add a bit more height to it though so I sat it on top of an antique silver pedistal dish,
And just added a few more sliver pieces from my collection, as well as a feather or two.
Sliver seemed the logical choice since our sticking holders are little silver trees.
Emmitt approves :)
