Mantel Scape Tuesday....Just Kidding!

So, I FINALLY got my mantel idea completed....
and what banner could be more appropriate????
(I am working on many more....ideas! ideas! ideas!)

What other kind of Christmas is there?????
(Oh, & sunny...but out here in LA-LA LAND
we are very good at pretending!! Shouldn't complain
since all of you Down Under actually have to have
Christmas during the summer!! )

There was just no way I could leave CHINTZ or
GLITTERY SHELLS out of my theme!!!

I added in all my "vintage-y" cottages....

And this ornament garland was an "other centered" gift
from Kae (other centered is our little joke for "there was only
two of them, so I couldn't get one for myself! Dang it!)

Still working on more.............. :)

  8. OH so pretty....a white Christmas would be wonderful, we have white sand and white clouds and white summery dresses but nothing as beautiful as your mantley White Christmas!! Love your decorations! We went Merry and Bright this year and it is sort of fun, but I do lust after White and Vintage!
