Happy holiday season to you all. Pictured above is our Christmas mantelscape for 2016. This is the first Christmas since the redo of this original 1947’s fireplace/mantel. Mother’s favorite flower is the poinsettia. Have you decorated for the holidays? Does your house have a mantel?

Hoping that all of you are having a wonderful autumn. This is my favorite season of all. Well, Autumn and Spring. Pictured above is our refinished antique mantel. It is original to the house, built in 1947. We recently had the living room, bathrooms, bedrooms and kitchen repaired/refinished. The candelabras and vase are crystal, and are also antiques. They match the living room and dining rooms’ crystal chandeliers. ‘Will share that in a future post. ‘Some of my DIY decorating here, lol. Do you decorate for the seasons or holidays? DIY or store-bought decorations?
