Inspired by a picture that Simply Bungalow posted, I decided on a whim to do our mantel in old bottles and vintage ornaments.
There are a few odds and ends of dishes thrown in too because I discovered that I had sold most of my bottles. A little tinsel here and there is nice too.
And some candle holders.....
I think some vintage mirrors and windows leaning up along the wall in the back would be a perfect addition.
But, this was on a whim and I was out of time and oomph.
If you had some really special ornaments, this would be a great way to display them. Just a few as a small grouping on a shelf or as your table centerpiece would be nice.
Blog posts may be a bit scant for a couple of weeks, making merry and all. But, I have to say that I've been detached from the "busy" in a really good way and am enjoying the season. I pray the same for you.
I also hope I maintain that attitude and detachment at the end of this week, ha!
