  3. Good Morning Traci... Beginning to look a lot like Christmas. I love the mantel it so warm and inviting.. I do miss having a mantel to decorate so when I see someone create a warm mantle gathering it makes me fell all warm and fuzzy inside..

    Thanks for letting me sit by your cozy mantle for a minute...and enjoy all my past memories of my cozy mantles.

    Have a great Day!

    Holiday Blessings

  10. What a breath of inspiration you are! Who'd have thought a white enamel pan hanging above your mantel with some goat bells could be so positively charming and festive?! I LOVE it!!! Me, I sort of get into a rut - same stuff goes in the same place year after year until I need to rearrange to accommodate a new treasure....Guess I was born without that creative gene.... ;o) Hope your week is off to an awesome start! Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
