Hey y’all…I’m so glad you’re here! I have been happily preparing my house for Christmas…and houseguests, parties and entertaining. For me this really is the most wonderful time of the year.
This week we have joined 27 of our blogging friends to share Christmas Ideas with you for Mantels, Tablescapes, Wreaths and Thrifty Crafts. Today I am excited to share my Rustic Christmas Mantel!
I have been very inspired this Christmas season by all things woodland and moss.
I balanced the look with my favorite vintage trophies and mercury glass trees.
You may remember the other day when I confessed to y’all that I collect twigs and branches. This is just part of my collection displayed in a glass vessel.
This Woodland Wreath was truly the cornerstone for my mantel decor. I think the antique tin art piece is the perfect backdrop.
This sweet milking stool has the perfectly aged patina…
I’ve had these moss balls for a very long time. Every once in a while I mist them with water to keep them a little more fresh. The pinecones are another freebie from my own back yard.
These metal deer are super cute. I bought them many years ago at Tuesday Morning (are you familiar with this store) after Christmas one year for $1 each!
This driftwood tree was another serendipitous purchase. I love when that happens.
I am definitely a sentimental soul. A couple of years ago we purchased the largest Christmas tree…ever in our lives. It was a beautiful 14 foot blue spruce. This large wood slice was cut from the stump of that tree.
I hope you like my mantel as much as I liked decorating it! Don’t forget to visit my friends this week. You can click the links below to see more Christmas Mantels today.
