This is day two of the Blogger Block Christmas Party and Kristin at
My Uncommon Slice Of Suburbia is hosting Christmas Mantels.
Some of you may remember my mantel disaster last year where most of my
mercury glass ended up in the trash. Thank you Command Hooks! I was
not about to make that mistake again so you will not find any glass on the
mantel this year.
My fifty cent Santos take center stage on the mantel. I temporarily added the wings to
them taken from other decorations. I love these little guys and they have to be one of my favorite
thrifting finds ever.
The mantel is decked with faux and real greenery. I always add the real greenery for the
wonderful fragrance. The altar candlesticks are the ones transformed last year
using Spackle and the candles were painted silver and then glittered.
A special Thank You to Vanessa and Heather for organizing the Blogger Block Christmas Party and to Kristin for hosting the Mantel Party.
If you missed day one of the party you can still check out Copy Cat decor at Debbiedoo’s.
Below is my Copy Cat project.
*Please join me starting the evening of 12/7 for the Holiday Dining Linky Party. I’ll be having a great GIVEAWAY starting that evening for all my followers. Here is a little hint….
The giveaway item was inspired by our recent trip to Italy and Greece.
