December Mantel of the Month

     Teal seemed to dominate my holiday theme this year so I just allowed it to carry me away!   The mercury and stone grey candle holders, Putti and dome base have an earthy feel while the silver glittered renaissance church and vintage style bottle brush trees add the much desired holiday sentiment.    

The teal and moss green panels were romantically draped on the mantel and then I began the layering process with a mix of vintage and new items.  A pretty mirrored tray with chunky candles, hydrangea, mercury votives and my new favorite item of the season, the victorious paper clay angel.  She has a wonderful ivory iridescent glow and I've secretly stuck a pin in the candle to display her wonderful details.

I adore the glittered beeswax tapers and use them everywhere!  These make irresistible hostess gifts too.   This new soft sage candle is fabulous with the teal and green color pallette.  I hope you have enjoyed our monthly visit and I wish you peace and happiness this holiday season.
