|This year I chose Nutcrackers. Can't you just hear the Nutcracker ballet music playing?|
|I have a lighted garland on the bottom with a berry, pine and cypress garland woven into it. I added gold picks with greenery and pinecones along the front and topped it with ornaments. The mantel is wide, so it takes multiple garlands to fill it.|
|This was the inspiration to hang ornaments on the front of the mantel. I thought he was cute.|
|Christopher Radko captured my heart with his ornaments years ago. These are finales and ornaments from his Circus collection.|
|A skinny tree with more Radko ornaments, gold branches, etc.|
|This was my Mother's nativity, that was always in a place of honor at Christmas. I smile every time I put this out because the box shows she paid $19 for it in 1960. It has a music box too.|
To me, it's the most important reason for the season, the birth of our Lord!
May your Christmas season be filled with many wonderful blessings!
