It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas around my house! Many things I have had for years and some I added as the years went by, including ornaments Santa's and such. I decorate in traditional colors, warm earth tones, rich reds, greens and what ever strikes my fancy. The first pic is my mantle and the second is the mantle and hearth as you can see. Some of the older stockings are "Mia" so they are somewhere, buried I'm sure in the garage that always needs to be re-arranged! This week I'm joining some of the Holiday Blog Parties and today is "Show Your Mantle" over with Pamela at From My Front Porch To Yours ! Thanks Pamela for being such a lovely host, don't forget to visit all the other party participants and have fun taking a peek at all the wonderful decorations!
