CHRISTMAS MANTEL

Tuesday, December 6, 2011

Dwellings
Mr. Heart loves nutcrackers and our den mantel is full of them at Christmas time.  Here in the great room we have two large nutcrackers and a vintage mirror on the mantel.









The wreath is bittersweet berries tied to the mirror with raffia.










The stockings are handmade from homespun fabric and vintage lace.
































It's cold outside so I am heading to the kitchen to make us some hot chocolate and will then curl up in front of the fire.

Hope your decorating is coming along well.

  6. There must be something about men enjoying those nutcrackers. My brother has a collection of them on his mantel as well as some smaller ones on the Christmas tree.

    I like how you added the berry wreath and the lace stockings to balance the look. You have a very pretty home, and it looks wonderful with the extra red at Christmas time.

  20. Love the wreath over the mirror. How did you get your sideboard (on the right in the almost last picture) to look like it was on fire in the picture? Cool effect!
