Christmas Mantel 2012

I can hardly believe that it's already December and time to start sharing our holiday decorating. But, alas, it's time...so here we go! As some of you already know, I made a promise to myself, to keep my decor simple this year, and I DID IT!!! I have so much going on right now, with my daughters college graduation, moving her home, and moving Coastal Charm Interiors into a new shop, that left very little time for decking the halls. I am all finished now, and I am really okay with the more simple look, here at Coastal Charm. I am looking forward to seeing what everybody has done this year, so I will be sharing my mantel at some fun Christmas parties, and hopping around visiting while I am there,hope you will join me.
                                                Blessings,
                                                   Linda


                                Christmas Mantel 2012

                               Grapevine tree from Target.


                       You can find these cute ornament hangers
                        at Dollar Tree (I got mine there last year).


                           My garland was found at a local Goodwill.
                           Deer antlers came from a flea market.

                          This monogram ornament was purchased
                                       at Pottery Barn.


                           I really wish I could remember where
                           this little santa came from...isn't he a
                                             CUTIE?
                                       

                          This DIY burlap tree, was made last year.

              This mantel was put together with things that I already had
               on hand. I have not purchased one thing this year, and there
                        will be no shopping for me on the 26th!
                           Mr.CC did really good, when he purchased
                                this Santa for me, many years ago.




Thanks for coming by, and please be sure to
join me at my NIFTY THRIFTY TUESDAY
PARTY, with all your CHRISTMAS decor!
