Festive Fun


I took these pictures before the tree topper was up, so don't look there ok.  I figured I should just post them before Christmas is over already, it's coming up so fast!

I did'nt have the energy with all the wedding planning I've been doing to think about going nuts- so with the DIY paper garland and a few extra tree branches my mantle was dressed up for the holiday in no time.


I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas season so far!

what a great fireplace scenario you have going on. Love that you can put a tall mirror on the mantel and still love your handmade garland.

beautiful! I love those sconces - I remember my mom had them when I was little (but your gold paint job was a great way to update them!). I think they were a home interiors item. Love it all!
