Thinking about what the fireplace mantel should be like this Christmas

I have started to think about the Christmas fireplace mantel and will soon get out a few things to start decorating.   I really liked the simple "woodland" feel that I went with last year...so I don't know if I will change it up a whole lot.  There are so many wonderful ornaments and things in the stores now and it is hard to remind myself that I really don't need another thing!!!  Does that happen to you too?

I enjoy this cozy corner of our open concept kitchen/dining room area.  For anyone new to my blog, I thought I would show you some before n afters and some of the ways I have decorated for the seasons.


This is how the room looked when we first looked at the house




 Lots of work removing all those tiles!!
So glad that job is behind us!


 Removing the window and getting a visual for the fireplace



 Here are some pictures of ways I have decorated in the past

So glad there is Pinterest and wonderful blogs to get inspiration from!

Have a wonderful week end!

I do like that woodsy look that you did last year. In fact, I pinned it as inspiration for my own mantel this year. I like reusing the stuff I already have rather than purchase new all the time. But if I find something I like, I'll definitely get it. Will look forward to seeing what you come up with this year.

You wouldn't know it was the same house Dawna! It is gorgeous now and your fireplace is so beautiful. I like that the mantel and surround is ample in size. Your mantle-scapes are beautiful. Can't wait to see what you do for Christmas! Enjoy the weekend.
