MANTLE PARTIES

I want to go to some parties and it requires I do a post on my 2012 Christmas mantle.  For those who don't understand, the parties are the linky parties bloggers throw and if you've never been to one just click on one of the blogs listed at the end of this post and a new window will open and you can see thumbnails of other people's mantles.  If you click on the thumbnail photo you will get yet another window opened to another blog.  It really is a fun time for inspiration and general snooping!  Try it.

My mantle isn't too different than last year's with the following exceptions.   I used a garland this year instead of picks and I went a little more luxurious this year with the gold accents and the peace ornament in the middle of the wreath.  The ornaments hanging on the garland are new too (after Christmas sales last year).







Lights On


Lights Off

Thanks for stopping by.  Leave a comment and let me know you've snooped visited--you can do it anonymously, if you're so inclined!  Oh, and go to a party too!
