Christmas Mantel

I always start holiday decorating with the mantel.

It seems to get me focused.

Some things, like these small church birdhouses and Sants, are a staple.

This year I found some items I haven't used in years,
 like this stocking hanger I made in the 1980s!

And this reindeer candle holder from the 1990s.
 Lots of stockings this year, everyone will be home!

Now, if only I can get focused on the rest of the house!

 Happy Holiday Decorating!


  1. Your mantel turned out wonderful. I love old window with the banner layered over the top all those pretty stockings. Did you make them all?

    1. Thanks, Robin! Yes, I did make all those stockings a couple of years ago!
