~Getting in the Mood & A Winner~

Finally getting inspired to work on some Christmas decorating.  I thought I'd share with Donna over at Funky Junk for her SNS feature of "mantels & stockings" tonight.  I like to keep my mantel simple with glass items and candles to reflect the light.  I might add some greens as it gets closer to Christmas since they dry out so fast.

I also made new stockings this year and am happy with how these turned out.  The burlap adds warmth to this area.  Hope you are enjoying your holiday season and are having fun decorating.  Enjoy! xoxo K.

I'd also like to announce the winner of my giveaway.  My daughter drew #26 who happened to be Trisha @ Glass Slippers and all Sorts of Stuff.  I hope she likes her goodies and thanks to everyone who commented:-)
