So here is my mantle before: Greenery is up, but nothing fancy is happening here.
Mantle after: Greenery is up and the lights are on!
Stockings are hung with care!
Christmas books and snowflake ornaments are stuck in the greenery.
And I hung a key in the center, don't know why I did it, but I like it!
So this was all stuff I had around the house, except for the stockings. I just bought those last night because we didnt have any! They were $7.99 at Garden Ridge. They are silk dupioni-esk, (or polyester made to look like silk), with little embroidered silvery snowflakes trimming the top. I love them and you can't beat them for $8 each!
Happy Holidays! T-minus 7 days!
