Doesn't that sound like a country music song title?
My mantel was in a decorating dilemma.
I had an idea in mind, but it wasn't coming together.
So, as usual, I popped into GW on Senior Day...but at 4 pm.I really didn't expect to find anything, since things are usually picked over by then...but there she was...a thrift store angel...and only two dollars! Whoo Hoo!
She's just the right size for the center of the mantel; and I already had some things I could use...
...snowy pinecones, flameless candles...
...a bird's nest...
...faux and real greenery, and white twigs.
The vintage-look ornament wreath is my "go to" wreath for our Christmas mantel. So, I used it again, this year.
"She's just a thrift store angel"... and now she's mine.
No, I don't plan on giving up my day job and going on tour with that song. :D
Guess I'd better get busy...it's, just 20 days till Christmas, and the tree is still in it's storage bag, on the living room floor.
I do have the nativity scene set up in the entry though.
I'll show you that next time.
* In case you're thinking I haven't been posting much lately, my thumbnails have stopped updating.
I know some other bloggers are having the same problem. If anyone knows how to fix it, I'd be eternally grateful.
