Christmas 2021

Christmas has come and gone again! I just finished taking it all down and packed it away until next year. I made this collage of some of my favorite decor pics and wanted to share it with you. I’m going to miss the lights! I will be starting Valentine lantern swags this weekend if you are ready for the next holiday!

Christmas Mantel 2021

Hello! I hope you are all having a wonderful start to the Christmas season. I’m still decorating, but wanted to share my mantel with you. I used the same garland I’ve used for the last few years, but changed the ribbon and added gold ornaments. I also made the wreath in the middle. I love that “Merry and Bright” sign I found at Walmart. This mantel is definitely one of my favorites! I will share more decorating pics with you soon!!
