Christmas Mantel

It's finally beginning to look like
Christmas around here!

Usually the decorations start to go up the day after

This year I started a bit late because the weather was so warm.
I wasn't feeling very Christmas-y!
Even though the stores have been selling Christmas since 

So far the tree is up and the mantel is done.
Well, I may add an ornament to the tree 
a few more candles to the mantel, 
but for the most part they're done.

Now for the front door, banister, dining room, etc., etc!

Happy decorating!

I love your stunning photos, Lynn! Your mantle is beautiful. I also wanted to tell you how yummy that pork tenderloin looks with those roasted potatoes. What a quick, but fabulous meal. I need to look for some of that blood orange olive oil...mmmmm!!!

Hi Lynn,

Your mantel is so pretty!
Love the red star and candles...
Have a great week!
All the Best,

Your mantle is lovely, Poppi! I love the way you have put it together. I am wondering how you got such wonderful photos, did you take them during the day when you had lots of light? That is probably what I did wrong, taking photos at night, that is.
Hugs, Cindy

Your photos are beautiful, Lynn. I can't imagine preparing for Christmas when the weather is warm. Here in the Pacific NW December is usually our wettest month and sometimes the coldest. Thank you so much for visiting my blog. It's a pleasure to meet you. I'm off now to read more of your posts.
