My Christmas Mantle Setup.

Hello everyone! First of all, I’d like to thank those of you that responded to my previous post.  I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  Like my mother in law says, we are taking it day by day.  We all agree that God has the last word on when our lives end.  The dr gave a prognosis but we know that the prognosis that counts is God’s.  So we are just going to be there for mama (mother in law) and love a lot to both of them.  Pops (father in law) may not know who we are, but I’m sure he can feel that we love him.  So with that said…..I want to share my mantle.  Oh my goodness! I worked on this on a weekend nonstop! 
This year I added the color chartreuse to my red and gold theme.  Chartreuse seems to be very popular! I love it!

A close-up. Loooove it!!! The green color gives it that pop!

You better watch out, you better not cry, you better not pout, I’m telling you why. Santa Claus is coming to town. :)  I'd like to add that I found this Santa picture at Kirklands on Black Friday of this year!  Isn't he grand and beautiful?

I read your note about Spam at the top of the post. I am getting inundated with spam all day, everyday. It is driving me nuts! Especially the "type" of spam, lets just say, it is quite disgusting. Don't know how to stop it though.

I've seen the Christmas pictures in the store and liked them, but couldn't really see what to do with them. However yours works really well on your mantel with all the Christmas decorations around it. Thanks for showing me how these pictures can be practical. Your mantel is beautiful.
