I wanted to share my Christmas decor with you today. I don't have a mantel in this house but I do have a white sofa table that I like to set vignettes on for each season, and here is my Christmas 2012 "mantel." One of my favorite things to do is collect home decor items from thrifting that "work" well together, so I've listed where I was lucky enough to get or make each item.
The LED candle in the glass and metal lantern was a Salvation Army find for like $2.00 (I know, I was pretty stoked about it too!) Worked great and nothing was broken or missing - it's about a foot or more tall too. The little red glass and glitter tree was also a thrifting find, I think it was .25 cents and it was new in box.
here for free! Thank you AKA Designs. It's in black/grey and white too, which makes it awesome for black and white only printers.
The frame was a TJ Maxx throw-a-way - I got it for .30 cents because it was scratched to high heaven but it still had it's glass and a beautiful black velvet flocked back... so I took a little bit of black spray paint and sprayed and rubbed off the excess to get the weathered look. The glitter star was a thrifting find on a thrifting adventure with Mama LOC, I think it's supposed to be a massive ornament but I like to set it places for some geometric interest. The glass candlestick is an antique and it was given to me during a set up for a garage sale. It's sitting on Dolly Parton's biography with the cover off and facing down. lol! :) The gold and ivory scarf was a Marshall's find from when I was in college.
And finally, this picture: I thought my mantel needed some dramatic flair. ;)
I do love how you can see my Christmas tree in the background of the print. Thank you for following along and I hope you had fun looking! :)
