Our Christmas Mantle

Here are a few pictures of our Christmas Mantle. I had tried to decorate our mantle every which way you can imagine. Finally it came to me, I was making it far to complicated, just like life can be sometimes. So, I stepped back and decided simplicity was in store. My Honey had built me a manger out of old barn wood from the house my mom was born in to compliment his mom"s nativity figurines. I decided to leave our you are loved always sign up as a reminder that we are loved! The stockings I cut out of old cedar board we had laying around, thinking it would give me that simple rustic touch!

    Beautiful, one of the best I've seen! I would put a fabulous star of some kind above the manger next to the great looking sign. Well done!
