Mantel Mania Turns Berry Glitzy

True to my promise last month when beginning my Blog, 
 I have been doing
 far more Blog Reading than Blogging.  
 As a result,  someone is behind the
 curve in a number of areas,
especially   laundry, dusting  Holiday Decorating. 

And the pictures:  OH the AGONY.   My living room
 has lots ofwindows, thus lots a light which is nice
except when it is reflecting
off mirrors,  shiny paneled walls,  glitter, and even
 the limestone floors in part of the room.
 Using old elements the Mantel has turned 

Berry Florals
Double sided Burgundy and reflective (of course) Gold Ribbon

holiday mantel 010

holiday mantel 014
And two new Reindeer (50% off from Hobby Lobby)
Candlesticks with Glitter covered   Candles
(reflective and standing out like a sore thumb)

Of course it is my thought that all these reflections
 may mean that
Santa should bring me a new, more difficult to operate camera!
Or, perhaps I should open my Photoshop program and
learn some helpful techniques.
See  the Fall Mantle.

I plan to be a PARTY GIRL this week.  Hope you will visit the following  gracious ladies’ Blogs.

...until next time, Honey

    I'm totally bowled over by your outstanding decorations - WOW!!!
    I'm still sitting at my sewing machine flat out making little gold and white Christmas decorations for my Christmas tree AND for my daughters tree in France!!!
    Sew, sew, sew - I'm wondering where those elves have got to - I thought they were meant to come in overnight and make everything OK!!!!
