~Christmas Mantel~

Staying with my theme of adding greenery around my home this year for Christmas, the mantel in my bedroom got dressed up a bit lately.  I still can't believe I had this beauty in our storage shed for two years before I was able to finish my bedroom remodel.  I knew it would be a great addition at Christmas time.  Enjoy!  xoxo K.

I also added a cedar garland on the ceiling tile above my bed and we have a tree in here as well, but I haven't had time to decorate either of my trees yet, so I will be sharing those as soon as that gets done.

These are a couple stockings I made last year out of burlap.

My hope, when I'm finished with all my decorating, is to share with all of you a tour of our home all decked out and I will be adding a linky party for any of you who would like to share yours as well.  I don't have a definite day set yet when this will be taking place, but hopefully at the beginning of next week, so I will keep you posted.  I hope you are all enjoying the holiday season:-)

Sharing with Becky for Blissful Whites.

  3. Hi Kathleen,
    I remember seeing your little mantel before, and so love it. The size is perfect for a bedroom. I love this time of year, except for all the running around, parties, its Katie's birthday (my middle child) on Monday, and never ending. It would be great to share all of our homes.

    Take care my friend,
    Sue

  18. Kathleen, your beauty is inside out, thank you for taking time to come visit me and all the excitement of a Romantic Country Magazine feature. I was like that's me, I think it's me, is it me? You just have this out of mind and body experience when you see the magazine for the first time, and you go back to it now and then to make sure your still there :)

    Thank you dearly for your beautiful comment that is just as exciting as
    THe feature itself.
    Keep inspiring your rooms that rustically inspire, with Oooh and awwww's
