I'm late as usual!


I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date! Well I like to think of myself as not late but saving the best for last! Ha, ya right seriously not! I'm usually the one who is late and makes that loud noise while trying to be ever so quiet, that everyone in the room turns around at the same time and then I do the courtesy like I am an actress on stage and it was all planned.

Ok, I digress, seriously head on over please to the Holiday Home Linky Party at
Layla of the Lettered Cottage! If you are struggling to find out what to do with your mantle for Christmas, well fret no more. There are like a bajillion ideas and I think it might just take me until Friday to go through them all. I linked up too because I love a good party! This was my mantle last year, dun dun dun dun......


And this is me taking it up a notch! Well I don't know about that, but I wanted to do something a little different this year!


Well what are you doing still hanging around here for? I love it of course, but get outta here and head to Layla's!

ADORABLE!! I love the feather boa. I have a chartreuse feather wreath hanging above my mantle for the holidays. It will be repurposed to my girly's room after.

Your mantle is so pretty! That feather would be "poof" on our mantle because of how hot the fires get!!! I also had to laugh at your next post with the guy hanging from the gutter! That was just too creative!!

Jane said...

I love both, but I personally think this year trumps last! Simply because of that fabulous white feather boa draped across the mantle! I'm in serious love.....

Brook said...
