November Mantel

We could not wait to bring our holiday goodies out.  Especially since our annual Vintage Holiday Open House is just around the corner (November 9th-12th)!  We usually keep everything under wraps and have one big splash for the Open House, but we wanted to have a holiday mantel to get you inspired!  Most of these items are in our e-'holiday' boutique so be sure to check there.  There are so many fabulous vintage inspired Santas, snowmen, bottle brush trees and paper pulp ornaments that it wasn't easy for us to narrow it down.  We've discovered a wonderful new company called Boxtart that makes precious boxes with vintage pics on them. 'A Christmas Token', to the left, and a deep green box with glittered cherubs stating 'For You' sits on the ornamental pedestal tray.  Cody Foster's 'Snowgent' with his velvet peachy scarf (to the right) is perfect with our peachy beaded garland and Tu-Tu trees.  What a spectacular new color for Christmas this year!  I love it with the soft mellow green in the tree that Santa is holding with his fluffy wooly beard.  The Victorian Santa is standing with a pink tree and girl child in a pretty pink coat holding a song book.  It's always a treat to find new Christmas favorites to meld with our old ones as we look forward to this special time of year.  Lest we forget Thanksgiving, we are very grateful for you all and wish you happy and healthy holidays with your loved ones.
