Today I want to share my decorated mantle piece. In the past I have usually decorated it with a garland and cream chunky candles.
This year I bought the gold letters spelling NOEL, and as I did not wanted them to be hidden by the garland we have had a change this year.
I have gathered together any little gold trees and we hung the kids stockings up too.
Another new addition is this wee fireplace (with a tea light candle behind it – but shhhh..my 4 year old does not know about that bit yet!) which had 5 hooks. I bought the mini stockings for the family, then saw another stocking with the name of our cat (George!) so it had to be purchased too.
Do you have a fireplace? How do you decorate your mantle piece?
The fire is not real, but a gas fire, which we don’t light often, but it will definitely be lit on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. In our last house we had an open fire (we used coal, logs or peat) and I don’t miss the dirt and dust, but I do miss the crackling sound and the smell of a real fire – nothing beats it!
Today’s digital scrapbooking item to share is another card for J M Digital Designs. The family gave permission to share the card on my blog, so here you are!
Leave a comment if you can, and come back for even more Christmas stuff tomorrow.
