Staying true to my love of decorating with blue, I have decorated the mantel in blue and silver with white lights in the garland.
I have kept my blue lanterns in place and put sparkly silver candles in them.
Two shades of blue ornaments are tucked in the garland.
In the middle is the word Believe with an ornament dotting the eye. I love the color of this, but also the meaning of the word.
Dictionary.com defines the word believe as:
(verb) 1. to have confidence in the truth, the existence or the reliability of something.
(verb) 2. to have confidence or faith in the truth of a story.
I BELIEVE in CHRISTmas - the birth of Jesus!
A silver snowman.
A sparkly silver tree.
The MERRY CHRISTMAS banner is new this year. It has the words MERRY CHRISTMAS wrote in glitter on alternating ornament shapes made out of sheet music.
Look to the left...see the tree on the plant ledge peeking above.
On the hearth are two snowmen. One is a snowman bucket filled with pine cones. On the other side is a tall snowman with a crackle finish. Once all the Christmas decor is put away, I will most likely leave these snowmen out and add a few more here and there for the Winter season. I have a collection of snowmen ;-)
