December Mantel

Happy Holidays Friends! Our December Mantel is all about the sparkle of the season. And, all that glitters is not always gold. Sometimes it's silver and glass, and in these parts, that is in the chilly northeast, it seems that silver and glass are all the rage this year. Not sure who we have to thank for that, but I've taken my grandmother's beautiful etched platters and cut glass bowls down from the trunk in the attic and am proudly using them in my decorating this year. And of course everything has sparkling glitter on it so we're in decorating heaven! Our favorite discovery this season are the glittered candles in the palest pink/coral and ivory/butter. These instantly add elegance to any candle holder and are especially wonderful in our silver set. The pedestal bowl is filled to the brim with iridescent balls and draped with pearly garland. We love to wrap and drape this around just about everything as you can see! It adds a wispy look and rewards with instant gratification. So, our last mantel of the year is complete and we are so happy and blessed to be able to do what we love. Our warmest holiday wishes to you all.

Blessings, Martha & Roberta
