Christmas Mantel 2011

I love sitting by the fireplace.

It’s the one thing about winter that I do like.

Especially right now.

When everything’s all a glow and

there’s glitter everywhere.

Christmas lights make me smile and

they’re calming.

I hope you’re finding ways to relax and enjoy the glow of the Christmas season.

      A florist in town was having a yard sale several years ago and I got it for $1…it’s one of the most talked about things in my Christmas decor. It’s also made of paper mache, very light and perfect for hanging! Thanks!
