Stepping into Christmas

Saturday, I decided to decorate our mantle. Even though I did want to hold off until I could do everything all at once. I bought a few bunches of Christmas greenery and a garland at Jo Ann's on Friday. Everything was 60% off. I am not that big on Christmas decorating. I hate taking it down later!!! I just put up a few things. I love a nice tree and lots of poinsettias and mini twinkle lights. Oh, snow outside is a must. After Christmas the temperatures can rise into the 80's, but I love a white Christmas.

The little bird stays up all year. He looks happy to have a new resting place.

The glass jars have candles in them. They are light once in a while. They look pretty at night when the lights are low.

The holiday look for your mantel is really pretty. It's funny, I'm taking a short internet break from doing the same thing.

Have a great Sunday.
