Favorite, favorite. I could just copy and paste that word into every post this month since nearly every THING in December is my favorite. Ever since I was blessed with a fireplace, decorating it has become a holiday favorite of mine. Fireplace mantels go with Christmas just like peanut butter goes with jelly.
I used the same star that Chris and I made of scrap sticks last year for this year's decor.
However, this year my mantel decor was focused around my most adorable new sign. It's a smile-everytime-you-read-it type of sign. The sign is beautifully made by Barn Owl Primitives. (I've shared my other sign from them in a past fitness post.) I just adore their work.
I really thought the colors were fun. That rubbed green is just a tiny bit rebellious as it's not quite the traditional holiday green.
The garland is little clusters of dried sage from the high desert.
This baby jar holds a cluster of matchsticks and the green is the same as the sign. perfect.
Our stockings are paired together, all super snuggly of course.
It's a cheerful little display
for our merry little Christmas.
And we all need a little
So, grab a handful of your favorite holiday treasures
and get to work on those mantels or shelves.
Because even just a tiny bit of Christmas spruce-n'
makes life just sweet enough.
