Yikes...I haven't posted anything since October 7th!!
Truth be told, this whole working full-time thing is getting in the way of keeping my blog up to date. Well, actually....this whole working full-time thing is keeping me from completing projects to add to my blog.
At any rate, I have new visions. I am on a mission.
I want a non-traditional Christmas mantel this year. I'm thinking colorful...something along the lines of this:
I envision chartreuse, magenta, turquoise. I told you...colorful!
However, I also want some simplicity to this mantel in the means of ceramic figurines spray painted an heirloom white. And well, where do you find such things? Thrift stores, of course.
I started in on my mission today and was able to gather these items:
All my mantels have to include the Big Man and this one holds a tea light candle.
These will look adorable painted white and placed on a round mirror with some snow sprinkled around them.
Building a small village
I think I was able to get all of these things for about $18.00.
It's a start. I still need to find a Christmas tree and maybe a snowman. I'll keep you posted as I make some progress.
