Christmas on My Mind

Are you crazy like me and already ready to start decorating for the holiday season? Do you change the look of your holiday mantel completely year-to-year? Please say yes to both and make me feel better! Wonder what I'll come up with this time ....
For a few years, vibrant seasonal colors, huge satin bows, gold beaded garland and nutcrackers galore graced our holiday fireplace.
Traditional holiday nuts served as the perfect perch in a glass vase for our shorter nutcrackers to stand guard a little easier.
Traditional reds, gold and greens fancied up faux green garland.
Last year, I softened it up a bit and went with muted reds, green and white ... dedicating it to Santa (per my then 5 year old son's request).
I'll have a find a spot for our "Believe" blocks again this year! Hmmmmm.
What we do without string lights to add soft ambiance?
