Merry Christmas 2013

 In one of the previous posts, I was dreaming of a mantle for Christmas see it here.  Well..........
this year my dream came true.  While on a road trip though Ohio, we stopped by an antique mall and there was my dream mantle.  After the expert packing by my husband, we were able to bring it home

When I purchased it, I was thinking of painting it black or white but when I saw it in the room, the quarter-sawed oak gave a richness to the room and complimented the kitchen cabinets across the open room.

My home tour begins here:

The following photos are the ornaments made by my kids when they were 2 and 5 years old.
This is my favorite tree each year.

O Holy Night is what these carolers are singing
