I have finished decorating the mantle in the room I have been "making over". I finally got my drapes made for the large window where the Christmas tree stands. We call this room the piano room for lack of a better name. There is no computer, no television or phone in this room. The piano I played on as a young girl is in this room. My girls played it too. I call it "my" room. :)
The glow of the white lights make the mantel shimmer at night. The stockings I made about sixteen years ago are satin and lace. There is a large gold butterfly hanging down in the middle. I didn't take a pic of it.
White poinsettias and large gold ornaments deck the mantle.
The only thing I added this year are the wooden trees. I bought them after Christmas several years ago for $2 each. They were white and distressed. I repainted them vintage white, added a little gold tinting and sprinkled diamond dust. (I didn't know I was using diamond dust until I cut my finger! I had purchased it at Hobby Lobby thinking it was white glitter.) I love the sparkly look of them now ... much more Christmasy.
I will share pics of my tree soon!
Thank you for all your kind comments in my last post. They mean the world to me! The holidays are very difficult for my family.
My mother-in-law has been very ill too. She has been in and out of the hospital for several weeks now. She has lived a long life ... she is nearly 86 years old. She may be greeted by Amber in Heaven soon...
Thanks for visiting!
