This is the mantle in our sitting room decorated for Christmas.
This year I decided to showcase the cute carolers that usually sit out on our front porch,
along with the lanterns (a garage sale find that Courtney scored). I guess this puts a new take on the phrase "bringing the outdoors, in", huh?! :-D
I wove in 'sheet music' ribbon in amongst the garland..
and attached vintage musical horns..heirlooms from my mother. I remember when I was a little girl, blowing into the horns..they actually make a sound!
And the three carolers remind me of my own children when they were young. So I guess this mantle could be called "Nostalgic Christmas!"
