Layla at The Lettered Cottage is having a Mantel Party tomorrow and it looks like I am running late! I haven’t even started decorating the mantel and the tree isn’t even finished yet. Rather than miss the party I am showing you my 2009 mantel.
I must apologize for the poor quality of the photos. I had just started blogging when these were taken with my little point and shoot. I will try to do better this year.
Please visit me starting 12/15 for the Holiday Decor linky Party. I hope you will join me in sharing your holiday decor including Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or any holiday you may celebrate this time of year. Please feel free to link up tablescapes, recipes, trees, wreaths, outdoor decorations. There are really no restrictions as long as it is holiday appropriate and family friendly.
Thanks for visiting and Happy Holidays!

Beautiful Sherry! I am running behind on decorating the mantle too!! I better get going if I want to join in the fun over at Lettered Cottage… I am looking forward to your party too!! 🙂
I am behind too! Your mantle looks wonderful from last year.
I am thinking I love last's year, how could you top this?
Your mantle is very pretty Sherry. I love the lighted garland and ribbon.
This is beautiful! We just moved last Sat., and I have a great new stone fireplace and mantel to decorate. You have given me some great ideas! Would you consider sharing this post over on Vintage Pollyanna? http://vintagepollyanna.blogspot.com/2010/11/tell-me-tuesday-3-sweet-fabric-rosette.html
I am with you , Sherry, haven't decorated a thing yet. Your mantle looks lovely!
Thanks for putting up my button, and I will be at your party.
My friend, The Tablescaper told me McLinky is changing, so that has me a bit nervous!
I think your pictures were great. Your mantel was beautiful too. I got my mantel finished last night for the party but couldn't get good pictures (lighting in a basement family room is not good). Hoping for better lighting today to join the party.
I'll be joining you on the 15th!
Gorgeous! I feel so behind…my living room and dining room are both filled with boxes of Christmas decor that I've yet to really get into! I did get some on the mantle last night!
Very pretty! I love your ribbon, lights, and I love how you used the hyrdangea in your arrangement too. I don't think your behind in your decorating at all it's not even the 1st of December yet, so in my book you are waayyy ahead! LOL!
I just too the faux pumpkin off the mantle yesterday. You are miles ahead of me Sherry, thanks so much for sharing and giving me some inspiration.
Hi Sherry, I am relieved to hear that someone else doesn't have their house decorated to the 9's yet either. As I keep my decorations up until Epiphany (Jan. 6th) I am never in a rush. I have to clean everything first as my mom always said "We can't just throw on some tinsel and hope it covers the dust." 🙂
Thank you from the bottom of my corsage making heart for your kind comments.
Hi, Sherry, I went to Lettered Cottage and could find no reference to a Mantel party. Did I get the info wrong.?Love your mantel and the little angels. I have your party button on my sidebar. Hugs, Ginger
Your mantle is delightful friend & your pictures are lovely!!! Thanks so much for sharing with us!
Beautiful mantle…love that ribbon! Can't wait to see your home all decked out :o)
Last years mantel is beautiful! My mantel last year was under construction. I can't wait to decorate mine this year.
Your mantel was lovely last year and I know it will be gorgeous again this year.
Looks so beautiful and classy Sherry. I love your ribbon and the nice glow of the lights…I am missing some lights…oh boy back to the mantel.
Absolutely gorgeous Sherry! I scrambled to get my pics together today for the party too! 🙂 Your mantel last year was beautiful and I can't wait to see what you do this year!
Oh Sherry — i LOVE the name of your blogsite. Yes, I agree with you especially around Christmas time.
Oops, I don't have a mantle! I am commissioning a mantle shelf and I want dentil molding, so Sherry, your mantle is copied for inspiration. You did a great job. Can't wait to see THIS year's effort!
All I can say is WOW! That mantle is stunning. I adore those prints over the fireplace. Can't wait to join the party later in the month! Take care Sherry!
Your last years mantel is very pretty! I love the lights on it! Can't wait to see what you do this year!
Your last year's mantel looks lovely. I haven't even started on my decorating so I won't be joining in but I will sure be looking at all the pretties.
Your mantel is beautiful. I love the ribbon too! I haven't started decorating because I am still trying to put stuff away from the move. IY YI YI!
Your mantel looks beautiful. Are you gong to change it up this year or are you a traditionalist? Either way it will be wonderful! Mona
Sherry, that is very pretty. Now get to work on decorating this year. I have been doing it for days and still not through.
This is beautiful, Sherry!
I love your linky party idea, too.
Oooh sounds fun Sherry! Your mantle is so pretty.
I just love your mantle!! I am saving pictures of so many to combine somehow into my own!!
How beautiful, Sherry…especially the cherubs! I haven't totally finished anything! Yikes! I need to get it in gear! Hope you are having a great week!…hugs…Debbie
yours is beautiful as I knew it would be! I think I may get to see the 2010 version up close and personal. 🙂 I couldn't do this party as I don't even have a mantle. A very big fireplace with no mantle. xoxo
Beautiful, elegant mantel. Looking forward to what you are doing this year!
