I thought I'd get around to sewing ultra-chic stockings this year, but that (along with a bazillion other things) hasn't happened yet. Is it just me, or does mothering get in the way of decorating? So, I picked up a couple of stockings for the boys this year, with nary a thought of whether they'd match the grown-up stockings. They don't, and so far I can't seem to muster up enough energy to be bothered about it. Go Mommy! For once I have defeated the Type-A crazy woman in my head.
I do love the snow-anchored branches. The mixed greenery and pinecones. The occasional snowflake peeking out of the greenery.
And my favorite thing is showing off our Christmas cards from years past--held up by snowflake place card-holders.
Now that I have had this put together for three hours, I am thinking about spraying snow on the branches--yea or nay? If you've posted about your mantel I would love to see it!
P.S. Lovin' the Linkys:
