A Very Merry Mantle....

Well I actually accomplished something today... 
My goal was to find the rest of decorations in the attic
but, that didn't happen...
So I thew on some fresh garland...
Hung the stockings...
Found some really cool vintage snowflake garland at 
Country Roads today...
And Tah Dah...


 Since some of my Xmas decor is MIA,
I bought these white doves,
and my son made some snowflakes we framed.



 I have to say these have been my favorite thing
I made my boys grainsack stockings about 4 years ago
and embroidered their names on them.
I lined them with blue ticking,
and some have jute trim, while this one has vintage crochet..


Have a very Merry Holiday...
We are 22 days away and counting..

Its fun for me to see what you bought at "the store" today that I wrapped up for you. Then, I come home and get to see what you did with everything. Looks great! I've done nothing yet, need to get on it.

Take care, Sue

HI Loretta,
I absolutely love your mantle, it's just beautiful!
The stockings you made are great!! I've been looking for some this year and haven't been able to find them. This is one of those times I wish my sewing machine wasn't broken!
Thanks so much for yesterday,it was such a pleasure to meet you!
Have a great weekend.

Melinda

I love, love, love the mantle! I have wanted to go white with my home, but I just don't have the confidence to do it. I love all your things, so chick and elegant. Thanks for sharing, perhaps I can get my nerve up to try a few things. I will check back often, blessings....Marla
