holiday mantel 2012...

I kept my mantel simple this year...


Mixing some of my old favorites...


With a few new purchases like these cute mini white pine cones from Michael's...


Breaking out my faux mercury glass pieces and tucking my faux greens in...



Adding classic colors of the season with some vintage books...


Just look at this sweet one I found treasure hunting in New Hampshire...




I hung my Pottery Barn sparkly wreath over my vintage mirror...


Then I added one of my favorite ornaments I picked up at HomeGoods quite a few years ago...



All blending together for a simple holiday mantel.
Thanks for stopping by!

I love your mantel. It just proves that beauty doesn't have to be over the top. The book of Xmas Sketches is so sweet, it looks like a chalkboard. Your mercury glass is gorgeous with all the white and the greenery.
