Revisiting Past Year's Christmas Mantels



Beth at the Stories of A to Z is hostessing an impromptu year's past Christmas Mantel Party to help inspire all of us in our decorating for the upcoming holiday season.

I think this is a terrific idea and can't wait to visit all of last year's mantels for inspiration!

I'm in a bit of a time crunch (expecting new little grandson's arrival any day now), so these pics are the first ones I found and are of my mantel year before last.

 Enjoy!

Please take a peek here & let me know what you think. I'll be adding more pictures as soon as I get more decorating done. Mainly pictures, not much text. Lots of closeup pictures, some from past year's decorating. I just adore all things Christmas & want to share my collections with you. Santas, reindeer, bottle brush trees, snowmen, angels, vintage ornaments, the list goes on and on ~ just ask my DH!!



If you know of others who have Christmas blogs, please email me & I will be happy to add their links to my Christmas blog!


And remember......

 Hugs,

Your mantel was absolutely beautiful! You decorated it in the most gorgeous colours.

Thanks for letting me know about the linky party. I don't have a mantel but would love to look at the way people decorated last year for some inspiration.

Best wishes,
Natasha.

I remember a pink Christmas I did at home when I was a girl. Your pretty mantel pictures bring back happy memories.
Good luck with the arrival of the new grandson.

I came for Pink Saturday and enjoyed this as well. Mega congrats on all your fun family doings - wonderful memories in the works!

Loved the cute Christmas mantel decorations. I have a wood stove this year instead of a mantel but can get ideas for future. Thank you :)
