Perfectly chippy...
Also fun year-round to feature artwork or mirrors in place of the wreaths.
I layered these wood pieces under-neeth, just because.  I love the layered look...clothes and junk ;)
And of course she needed her accessories...
And here you see one of the lovelies in a place of honor next to my Christmas tree.  I think Im almost done decorating...no, Im done.  I need to just stop or Ill be decorating until the big day! 
I love to see what everyone else is doing at their house for Christmas. 
I love to see what everyone else is doing at their house for Christmas so I added a few more pictures of what Ive got going, just incase youre interested...
The mantel...
We have fake trees...as per my hubbys request.  So I sneak in real greens wherever I can.  These are actually little potted trees...and they are still alive, thats a Christmas miracle for sure!

I found these chippy old handrail brackets a couple of weeks back.  It was "love at first sight".  My first thought was to use them as they were intended...just because they would look much cooler than the boring hardware we have holding our handrail now.  But then I decided they would be better featured as handy hooks for a couple of wreaths in my livingroom.

Guess we'll have to start that support group next year ladies, sounds like we all blew it for this year...haha! I did finally clean the pile of decorating supplies off my dining room table though. I'm thinking maybe that will stop the "madness". Merry Christmas everyone! Laurel Posted: 4:09 pm on December 20th
