My newly decorated fireplace mantel.

I've been admiring some lovely blogs in blogland.
Sigh.
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!

Hi Loretta
Your blog is great - I can't imagine why you think others are better. I look forward to reading yours and look every day for new posts.
Love the new look mantle shelf. Those candle sticks look just like my mother's that have been passed down for generations and I'm trying hard not to envy that clock! I just can't find one small enough for our little house but big enough to see without going up to squint at the dial.
