Mantle shelf built by my sweetheart:) Est. saying made by me and added this year. The window was in my growing up home until this last summer when my parents got new windows and I snagged the ones they took out...yes its weathered from being out in my "stash" of stuff I wanna use eventually.
The stars have been gathered thru th elast few years as I LOVE stars and they are my main decor year round. The one in the center tho I must share as it was a BARGAIN! I found it at a thrift shop last weekend for just 50 cents! I couldn't pass that up! I found the sweet goldish ornaments at the $ store . The Angel is from Germany a gift from our cousins. The lil Santa was a wedding gift from my parents and was handmade and personalized just for me and my sweetie! The greenery is just some garland from the $ store and I made the twine/fabric garland a few years ago and this year decided we'd use the shiny stuff on the tree (kids begged), so it was available for my Mantle:) The bows were tied by me with some cute holly printed gold ribbon from the $ store. SO I've spent well lets see probably about $2.50 on this Mantlescape! Gotta love it!
I've been inspired a ton by Beth over at The Stories of A2Z and that is how I found out about the link up party shown below. Thanks Beth!
