Signs of Christmas Mantel

This is my mantel this year , in years past it has been covered in nutcrackers, and all sorts of other things. this year I wanted to be more simple, although I always tend to keep adding things , so what starts out simple doesn't stay simple. There will also be 6 more stockings hung when I finish trimming them with lace for the girls and fringe for the boys.

This little Eskimo Legend was sent to me from a friend who is also a widow.
I thought it was sweet and saved it.

I tried to keep a neutral theme throughout the living room this year. Just shades of white with touches of pink and green , gold and silver
I'm having fun decorating this year cause I'm doing it totally differently than I have in the past. I didn't pull out any of my old stuff.
Are you having fun with yours ?

Linking to Faded Charm White Wednesday.


  1. Love your mantel
    What a great idea to use the old windows
    Very pretty

  2. Sharon, this is so pretty. I love the way you used the windows and displayed the NOEL.
    Leave it to you to do an "over the top," mantel.


  3. I love your mantle! Using the windows and lighting are a fabulous idea!!! The Indian saying is really touching... Have you posted the mantle in other (non Christmas!) pictures? I just had mine painted and am looking for ideas!


  4. I love what you did with the doilies! Your mantle is so pretty.

  5. So glad you found my blog & that you like it. I just posted a friend's house that you'll love. It's so funny because I have the K-Mart dishes (a little different from yours) & I use them every day since I purchased them (very durable). My husband died 2 yrs. ago in Jan. so also, unforunately, have that in common. I'm only at Leola's on Mon. but usually in & out on weekends so if you're coming, let me know & I'll try to be there. Thanks, again. Jan

  6. I really like the mantel done up this way! I love old windows! The the NOEL is so cute!
