I’m super excited to share our Christmas mantel with you today! Don’t let the mantel fool you, this is the only thing in our home that is decorated for the holidays at this point. I was about ready to pull out of the blog hop today but I needed to bring a little joy into our home.
My mom is not well and my days have been spent at her bedside in the hospital. It’s a new season in life and it is so damn hard. As I get the courage to share a little more I will. If I can help others that are traveling down the long road with parents diagnosed with Parkinsons and dementia I will. Thank you to all my incredible readers and friends! Many of you have been with me from the very beginning and I am so thankful for you and wish you a wonderful Thanksgiving. Even when the road gets rough, I am constantly reminded of how grateful I truly am on a daily basis.
We are in the fourth week of the Seasonal Simplicity Christmas Series! Today, we are sharing our Holiday Mantels and a few vignettes decorating ideas, to help inspire you for the upcoming holidays. At the bottom of the post, you will find all the links to bring you to all the gorgeous ideas!
The little white houses I found at Target in the “dollar section” that really isn’t a dollar. LOL I think they were $3 a piece.
On top of the mantel, I layered pom pom’s, lambs ear garland and some wintery white stems. I found the Christmas trees at the dollar store last year, I haven’t seen them yet this year or they flew off the shelves really fast.
I’m hoping I can get a tutorial up soon on how I made this chunky knit wreath, It was super easy! I’m hoping I can carve in a little time to start decorating the rest of the house over the weekend, how about you, have you started decorating?
