Hey! Did everyone enjoy Thanksgiving? Hard to believe it’s over and Christmas will be here soon, then the first of the year. Time is going way to fast for me. I did manage over the long weekend to get my mantel decorated for today’s Christmas Ideas Tour.
There are 10 of us showing off our mantels today. Woohoo! I can’t wait to hop on the tour.
For my Christmas display I went with rustic mantel decor. I bet you guys didn’t see that coming. I was gaga over the mantels in our Fall Ideas Tour. Several of my favorite bloggers included amber glass in their Fall displays. I borrowed the idea.
Notice how I have a clash of holidays here. The pumpkins have made it through Halloween and Thanksgiving and are still hanging out for Christmas. However, they will be gone this week. This angle of the fireplace is what I see when I’m sitting in my favorite comfy spot on the couch (country word for sofa, I’m a little bit country as the song says).
Another angle from the sofa with the zoom lens.
I found the vintage amber glass oil lamp bases at My Favorite Junk Shop and I got them for a song. The star baskets, the amber Purex bottle, and the warped gold frame came from the same junk shop.
I found the “cork” poinsettias at Old Time Pottery in Nashville. I love the natural look and they go well with my rustic theme.
The Merry Christmas sign is a DIY from a few years ago.
I got the grapevine wreath and all the goodies to put it together at Old Time Pottery. Wreath tutorial coming later this week.
