Wonderland...Our Mantel Reveal

I want to begin by saying that I am, so, thankful that my husband and I have our comfortable home and the things that we love and cherish to share with you, in my posts, on my blog and thank you for following me!
But, before I begin, I am feeling the need to dedicate this Holiday post by sending thoughts and prayers to all of those not fortunate enough to be celebrating their normal festivities, in their own homes, this Holiday season. Specifically, those who lost their homes from the devesatations of hurricane Sandy, the train de-railment in New Jersey, those who are hospitalized for whatever reason and our brave men and women in the armed forces. I wish, all, a fast return to homes and loved ones and a new start to carry on and be surrounded with love!

Happy Holidays

May God Bless 


   Now, if you saw the "little peeks" in my Pearl and Gold Candlescape post  then you kinda know what my mantel theme is for this year, so-o-o...

Let it Snow....Let it Snow...Let it Snow!

It snowed on our mantle and even in my pics.....I had a lot of fun with Pic Monkey's winter editing tool.

 

Here's an evening shot w/out the falling snow... 'though I did add more fake snow to the greenery.


 You'll notice more snow in some pics...look closely!

My wonderfully, detailed snowmen are cherished gifts, handed down, from my dad...I just adore them!




Jolly santas, from my mom, stand in place on the hearth.

Stay tuned for lots more upcoming posts of our tree...entry...chandeliers...vignettes and more!

Til then...enjoy the Holiday's to the Max!

Love, Hugs and Kisses,

So cute! I love the little snowmen especially. Thanks for reminding me about picmonkey. For some reason I always forget that tool. Thanks for joining us at 'it's beginning to look a lot like christmas'. We're so happy to have you!

What a pretty mantel--the stockings are so beautiful! So nice to hear from you today, and I'm glad that you liked my little red ice skates project! Thank you for the pin, and I pinned your mantel as well! Have a lovely weekend.

Very nice! Love the snowmen and that box! I like how it's lit and partly open like things are flowing out of it! Great pictures! I never thought to put a snow blanket on the hearth. That looks good!
