Hi everyone! I am linking this post to Susan @ http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com for Met Monday
and The Nester @ http://www.thenester.com/2009/12/christmas-tour.html
Please visit these two wonderful blogs to view what other participants are sharing with us.
And here are my “after” pictures. If you’d like to see photos of my Christmas tree, you can see them here.
Ok, let’s take a closer look at the mantle! :) This year I decided to decorate this area in cream, gold, and green, with an accent of red. I used two of those plain garlands and added clear lights to it. I found these lovely magnolia flowers at Michael’s. I love how they go with my pictures above the mantle. I also placed gold ornaments and gold Christmas picks I found at Hobby Lobby. I spray painted the pinecones in a gold color. The finials were from a sale at Hobby Lobby during the summer. They used to be a gold color and I decided to paint them an ivory color. The angel is my red accent.
And that is my tour of my fireplace. I hope you enjoyed looking at the photos as much as I enjoyed showing them to you. :) Have a wonderful day.
