I'm seeing beautiful Christmas mantels everywhere in Blog-land, so I may as well join the party, so to speak.
I should be at my sewing machine making Christmas gifts, but I don't have what it takes today... so here I am, showing you my mantel.
It's a very basic, natural one this year. No sparkly lights, only candlesand lamp light to brighten the manger scene.
Simple vintage turquoise ornaments, old bottles, and spruce branches.
Norman Rockwell prints and fuzzy stockings, pinecones and antlers and my dear father-in-laws tiny tree that my husband inherited when he passed away.
These truly are a few of my favourite things.
I found the antlers in this charming little town on the I-90.
Wallace, Idaho, is a Silver mining town and is lovingly preserved for visitors and residents alike, to enjoy today.
It's surrounded by beautiful mountains, and as you can see in the photos below, they are right at the peoples doorstep.
The people were very friendly and welcoming.
My husband and I spent a couple of very enjoyable hours there.
We found several antique stores. Some carried truly antique items and some carried vintage items that I had not seen anywhere else. We will definitely visit Wallace the next time we are in that vicinity. It was lots of fun!
I hope you're enjoying your week!
