Christmas is almost here!

A heartfelt thank you to all of you who left sweet messages of encouragement yesterday.....you are simply lovely friends.

Today I'll be busy filling orders from my webstore..........Here are some pics of my mantel decor for Christmas - I'm still adding to it, for it seems to need some more "stuff." Hope to get some painting done sometime this coming year, a neutral shade as a good backdrop for my whites. The wall color looks okay in the pics, but it is more yellow than shown - I'd like a faint taupe color, or varied shade of white.

Have a blessed day, all of you....

I just love the scrabble pieces, and the jewelry on the white ironstone pitchers. It looks just great. I wish I had a mantle. Hugs, Kathleen

Loving it, M! My walls were once about the color you have shown. I changed to white and then to a soft taupe and I LOVE IT NOW! Had I not brought the color cards home with me I'd NEVER have chosen what I did. Strange how some things work out.

Anyway, love your pretties. Sooo fabulous.

Love to you~

Pretty mantle Melissa!! I have those same mercury glass candleholders. We must shop at the same place. :)

So sorry you are missing your mother, but that is a testament to how special she was to you and that is a good thing.
