The stockings were hung by the chimney with care…
A little mix of old and new on the mantle:
Vintage papier mache Santa courtesy of my grandmother’s attic.
Vintage Danish Modern Candleholders (for sale here.) Hey, until they’ve sold I might as well enjoy them myself!
The Construction of the Eiffel Tower print courtesy of Whitney’s trip to Paris several years ago. (Thanks, Whitney!) I considered taking it down for the holiday season and finding something more festive but “E” said, “Why? It’s Christmas in Paris too.” I thought that was a good point so I left it where it was.
Handcrafted Letter Ornaments from West Elm. Now on sale for $2! These ornaments can be used for so many different things this season! I like West Elm’s suggestions of personalizing a gift or spelling out a meaningful word. So many wonderful possibilities! I’ve used them to designate stockings. Afterall, I don’t want Santa getting confused and putting coal in the wrong one. 😉
How’s your mantle shaping up this season?
