Christmas Mantel and Tabletop~ Victoria Style!

I've been so busy having fun doing my Christmas decorating
that the time has just slipped away from me.

This month is just going by way too fast!

I still have lots of photos to share with you,
...and I can hear the clock ticking... tick tock, tick tock,

Christmas is just about here and I'm running out of time!


So without further ado....

Here's the photos of the mantel in my Living room.

The wreath was a T/S treasure.
I added a beaded butterfly an hung it with ribbon.

Velvety burgandy Poinsettias, frosty grape floral pick,
and pine greenery from my backyard.

Gold leafed sleigh filled with backyard pine and pinecone's

I'm so lucky to have alot of great trees and bushes in my yard that I can use their foilage to add to my Christmas displays.

I painted this papier mache deer gold, and antiqued it.

Then added grapevine wreath around it's neck
with floral pick and more greenery.

I hung some gold beaded bling from the

This is my favorite Chistmas angel!
I just love her adorable Victorian looks!

See her darling little button up boots!

An antiqued lace table runner to add to that Victorian look.

More pine greenery and Poinsettias!

Also a scrolly green candleholder and Terrarium
with pretty burgandy ornaments and greenery inside.

Well, I hope you enjoyed this little Christmas tour around my Living room!
I'll try to get the rest of my goodies posted asap!

I hope all of you are enjoying the holiday hustle and bustle!!
and celebration as well!

Warmest Wishes!!

Hi Sherri,
It looks gorgeous at your house! I love the mantel decor sooo much.
Your angel is so pretty and your vignette you've done with her is just beautiful. I am sure loving the scrolly iron pieces you have with her in the vignette! I will be excited to see more of your holiday home.

Love the colors that you chose to decorate with...burgandy and gold are my favorite and the colors that I usually use at Christmas! Your hurricane candle holders are sooo beautiful! My friend, I am going to look for one of those paper mache did a beautiful job with yours!!! And...adding that pretty wreath around his neck was like icing on the cake!!! Did you use just regular acrylic paints on him? He's a beautiful addition to your Christmas mantel!!!
