Christmas Mantel and Fireplace

Oh my goodness, where has the time gone? I am running sooooo incredibly late it is not even funny. Can you believe I haven't even put up our Christmas tree yet? Certain events, both good and bad have just taken up so much of my time plus my health has been an issue too...Yikes! But God is good and helps me carry on. Anyway, I didn't want to end this year without sharing a least a few more posts.

Today I wanted to share with you this year's Christmas mantel and fireplace...
Keeping it nice and simple but still very festive.
My golden reindeer are a dollar store find from a couple of years ago...cute!
And this beautiful Christmas floral arrangement for my swan was a gift from my sweet Mom-in-law. 

My plans are to put up our tree this Friday once all of our daughter's final exams are out of the way...In the meantime I think I'll get started on our annual "Most Treasured Ornament". Can't wait to finish it and share.

Hope you all are having a very festive, healthy and merry holiday season.

Hugs and Kisses,

Hello dearest Ana, I'm very sorry to hear that your health has been an issue again...or still. I am glad to see you post your beautiful mantel. The reindeer are adorable. How lovely that your mother-in-law would give you a beautiful flower arrangement.
I've missed you my friend.
Love and hugs, Cindy

Mi dulce amiga, espero que usted ha contratado a las cosas más hermosas que los feos. su repisa de la chimenea es muy simple y elegante, me gusta mucho. No puedo esperar para ver su ornamento anual! Te quiero ..

I've been so away from my place that it's almost weird but I saw Gina PIN and had to come here and see what you're up to :).
Don't overdo. You're first and all the rest can come when it comes... besides your touch makes every tiny detail look a grandiose setting.
I know it will perk you up a bit seeing the home decorated for the Holidays and you did choose the right items - not only beautiful pieces but full of meaning.
Enjoy the Holidays, Sweet Ana!
