I've been admiring some lovely blogs in blogland.
I took down the nativity scene and wished to put something different in its place.
After looking at quite a few beautiful blogs, I decided I needed a "new look" for the mantel and not something too extravagant or fancy.
I headed to my local Winner's store, and found the silver candlesticks for $15 and $13 each, and the clock for $23. I already had the lights, and simply added the white tulle, bought from the dollar store.
I also bought the pretty silver runner from the dollar store, and the large silver frame. The small frame was only $5 (also from Winner's) so I think I did very well with my New Look!
