Christmas Mantel

My fireplace is awesome! It must be the best thing about our home.  It is big and beautiful and it is the one saving grace of this cold, snowy season.  I look forward to using it throughout the year and now it is TIME!  I realized the other day that I still had fall decorations on the mantel and quickly came up with an idea for the Christmas holiday.  I am loving the result:

Love that chippy old shutter!
And the antique frame really pops!
Can’t wait until my new living room furniture comes- it will look so pretty together!
If this is a taste of what is to come, I can’t
wait to see how it all comes out!
