‘Tis the season to decorate all surfaces of your house. Fa la la la la, la la la la.
First up. The mantel.
I went with a woodsy snowflake motif this year. I also embraced the television. Who wants a beautiful mirror with a ton of snowflakes on it over their mantel? Not this girl. Nope. (That’s a lie.) Even so, I’m still happy with how it turned out.
I tried out the ol’ Epsom salt in a Mason jar (a blogger holiday favorite). The pharmacist in me enjoyed the fact that I was using medicine to decorate. It’s hard being me.
I made the stockings that are hanging by the
lack of chimney with care. Turns out I’m allergic to burlap. (Tutorial on Friday. Get. Excited. Because my sinuses aren’t.)
This is the point where Nate asked me how many photos one could have of a tiny area. I had to give him that one.
Fa la la la la, la la la la

You can see our 2011 mantel here. I definitely think my mantel eye is improving.
Are you done decking the halls? Just started? What’s your mantel motif this year?
