I remember Christmases long ago…well about 20+ years ago, haha… my mom decorating our mantle with stockings and little knick knacks around Christmas time, my dad keeping a toasty fire going in the fireplace. To me nothing says cozy Christmas quite like a warm fire to snuggle around, amiright!!? Now as an adult I carry those sweet memories with me and they truly influence how I do things in my own home, particularly around the holidays. I take those special moments and use them as inspiration to create a home where my little family will create moments and memories of our own.
When I first saw this house my initial thoughts were, “it has a fireplace!! I can’t wait to deck it out for Christmas!” And here we are Christmas time has finally come! It’s officially December and if I’m being honest I’ve already decorated my mantle 3 different ways…but, I think I finally have it perfectly situated to my liking, so I thought I’d share it with you today! Everything I used were items I already had and with a quick can of spray paint I transformed some old rusty bells that I think add the perfect finishing touch.
Thanks so much for stopping by today, friends!
