Christmas Mantel 2012

It's so nice to have most of our decorations up and in place.
The mantel is one of my favorite places to decorate.
This year's mantel is pretty similar to last year's with it's red and white color scheme.  
I did get one new piece-the Santa subway art- that I found on this trip.  I have it propped up with a cookbook stand.
The rest of the pieces are things that I had and have collected and used over the years.
I added my thrifted Skotch Kooler and thermos to the hearth that I got for my daughter's graduation party decor.

The decorations on the garland are all from Ikea

The puffy fabric stars are new this year (also Ikea).
I think it's finally done.
 I've been tweaking it here and there but at some point I need to stop and just enjoy it.
Did you check out my Starbucks Cup Angels?

I am loving the new blog look! (Please tell me its new and I'm not just that bad at observing!)

I love the mantle. The red and white and silver look great together. And the Santa subway art is really cool!

The re-use of the cooler is great! It matches really well with the Christmas decor!

It looks wonderful. I really want that Santa Subway Art. My mantel is still in starting stages, but on it's way. Might have to hit up Target for some inexpensive additions.

(Love the Ikea decorations too, but my Ikea store is an hour plus away and just not up to making the drive.)

I like the strict color restriction - so very red and white. Nice job.
