Christmas Mantel

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!

  1. 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!

  2. 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!

  3. 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!


  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. 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

  7. 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.

  8. 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!

  9. 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!

  10. 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!

  11. Hi Sherry,
    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.


  12. 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!

  13. 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
