SIMPLE...

If you've been reading this blog for awhile you know that the word that best describes my holiday decorating style is

SIMPLE.

My Christmas mantle is no exception.











Tinsel and bottle brush trees in antique containers like brown transferware and tarnished silver as well as mercury glass candle holders mingled with my ever present wasp nests ( check out the huge wasp nest from my friend Euna)  and a teeny bird nest. 

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you who left a sweet and much appreciated comment on my last two posts TRANSFORMATION and SHABBY CHIC ON FRIDAY. 

I love you all and have the best intentions to thank each of you personally. Life just gets in the way sometimes.

Hope you understand....
