Christmas Mantel

We had some sunshine today so I could take some pictures of my mantel. I know I'm a little slow. I tried to decorate more wintry since I like to keep it up until after the new year. I am not the person who rips down the tree the day after opening gifts.

I have these two curved mirror that have been sitting in my closet. I remember grabbing them on the last day at an antique market.  It was one of those "I have to get one more thing" moments. So, I paired them up with my old window and hung my little starfish up. Almost like a coastal snow flake.

The greens were plopped in my champagne bucket along with some pine cones that I found out back still on the branches. I just tipped them with some with paint to match the ones on the wreath.

It seems blogger is feeling a bit fussy tonight and not letting me upload any of my other pictures. So, I will have to leave you with just this for now. Have no fear, I will try again in the morning. Hopefully I will have better luck tomorrow.

see ya later,


  1. It looks very pretty, Anita. I love your wreath! I keep my tree up until New Year's Day. That's how we always did it growing up. It takes a lot of work putting it up and I like to enjoy it for awhile.

  2. your startfish are perfect costal snowflakes. Your wreath is beautiful and I love the idea of using paint on the pinecones.
    I totally love your candleholder, perfectly rusty and beautiful.
    I think your Christmas decorations are lovely. Colorful and perfect for the season, but nice and simple, not overdone and fussy.

  3. Very wintery! I really like your wreath, and the mirrors next to the window.

    Blogger started acting funny with the pictures for me, too. Then they told me I had to buy more space. I just found out that if you have clickable pictures, they store each picture twice!

  4. It looks beautiful Anita! I love the mirrors and the trees plopped in the buckets are perfect!!

  5. pretty mantel! I love the mirrors paired with the old window!

  6. Great looking mantel! The starfish hanging from the mirrors is very fun! Love to decorate with old windows, tins and mirrors. Looks pretty and calm!

    Merry Christmas!

  7. that is so you- it's perfect! the starfish are my fave touch!

    Blogger has been fussy lately. It's been driving me crazy! Good luck with the picture loading.

  9. Your mantel looks so festive! I love the mirrors with the starfish accents.

    Can you send some sun and warm my way. Baby it's cold outside!!

  10. Love your mantle, Anita! Those mirrors look great flanking the window, such a neat idea! And I love your pinecones, and you are so right, the starfish do look like snowflakes!!

  11. Phew. I had to load your page like four times for this box to work. Weird. :/

    Anyways, I LOVE your mantle! It looks great! I love the coloring and design taste you have! Beautiful!

    I am so glad I came across your blog. The "going a little coastal" made me chuckle out loud. Way cute!

  12. Your mantel looks great! I love the starfish dangling down!! I read where the wood was gone now... FUNNY!! I bet you don't get to use that fireplace often! I heard Florida got that blast of cold, too. Very pretty mantel Anita!

    Merry Christmas!
