Our 2012 Christmas Mantle

This won't be a very detailed post, but here are a few quick shots of the great room mantle this year.

Just fresh greenery, feathers, berries, snow covered pine cones, a few magnolia leaves, and a pheasant.

I promise I had not been drinking when I snapped these pics, but it sure looks like it, doesn't it? They are all so crooked.



I will do my very best to do a more detailed, close up of everything next week.

Linking up to FMFPTY 2nd Annual Holiday Mantel Party with Pamela.

So Pretty!!!! Like the pheasant tucked in with the greenery.
I am good at taking crooked pics. :D
I take a lot of one thing in hopes of getting one decent one out of the bunch.
Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

It's so pretty, Teresa, and the red buffalo check chairs are so perfect in the setting. But, come on and admit it, you were tipping back a bit of eggnog, right?

Just gorgeous. My kind of mantel, and don't tell anyone but I have a pheasant fetish. LOL

I also love your checked chairs, and b/c I am on the hunt for an old table to cut down for a coffee table, I could not help but admire yours. :)

Merry Christmas.

Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous!!
The magnolias, the feathers, the colors all add to the festive look of the Santa picture and the chairs, Teresa. Did you get my e-mail? I think I sent it to the Yahoo address. I received my magnolia branches on Thursday. Thank you oh so much!! I love them! I've yet to take photos, but will get them done soon.

Traci said...

It's so pretty! One year I want to do fresh greenery. I've never used it. Does it stay fresh for awhile?
