At Least The Mantle Is Done


 
 
I am so behind in decorating for Christmas!  I finally finished the mantle and now
I am working on the tree. 
 
This year I went with a natural look for the mantle and the only thing purchased were
the large pinecones.  The trees in a nearby park supplied the smaller pinecones.
 
Hopefully,  I'll be back soon to show you the decorated tree.
 
I apologize for the poor quality pictures.   My camera broke and I had to use the
point and shoot.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
If you missed the two post about our early Christmas Vacation you can find them Here 
and Here.
 
 
 
Thanks for visiting!
 
xx,
Sherry

Your mantle looks wonderful - love all the natural items.
I think with Thanksgiving coming so late this year it threw everyone off with their decorating. I just finished today - have a few little minor things to finish, but I am DONE.
Have a great evening.
