{Christmas Mantle}

I've been giving some thought to my Christmas mantlepiece. At the moment it's not very festive... I have two red candle holders that come out each year, and I have a few other candles that are present all year round (True Grace, Library being one of them).

So, I headed to Pinterest to see if I could find some inspiration. Here's what I found:

Pine cones on a string - love the simplicity of this and I think some gold cones would work really well.

Ivy, fairy lights and letters... I have the letters for NOEL in gold so I could do something similar I think (I cleverly bought the letter V too, so during the year I can change the letters to spell LOVE)


Red, white & green... Love the idea of filling glassware with baubles, and I particularly like this wreath.

More baubles in glassware, and I love the silver candlesticks and votive holders which could be used all year round.

Twigs and greenery add height in this mantlepiece, and I hadn't considered hanging a wreath over a mirror (there's a large mirror above my mantle).

Twigs feature again in this layout. I love the stags that are on the floor... where can I find some??

  6. naturally like your website however you need to take a look at the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    A number of them are rife with

    spelling issues and I to find it very bothersome to inform the
    reality then again I’ll definitely come

    back again.

  14. I have been browsing on-line greater than 3 hours today, yet I never
    discovered any interesting article like yours. It is
    pretty worth sufficient for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made just right content as you did, the net will be
    much more useful than ever before.
