A Repurposed Christmas Mantel

As time goes by I decorate less and less for Christmas. 

Simple neutral Christmas Mantel
At one time I had quite a large Santa collection, over 100 of them!

Now I decorate using only my very favorite things and my Christmas mantel this year is the perfect example of that. 

The wooden Santa on the end is my last surviving Santa, he was a special gift from my brother.

The adorable family of vintage deer came across my path when I worked in a local antique store. I could not let them go by!

The K vintage block with the bottle brush is a quick craft project, all my girls begin with the letter K. 

The Scrabble sign can be found in my Etsy Shop.

My very favorite decoration is the vintage funnel tree I made, it actually looks quite wonky in this photo but it isn't. 

I use battery powered fairy lights to light up the mantel and below it hangs my newest felted garland from Hobby Lobby.

It is neutral, simple, beautiful and just makes me happy!

Let the holidays begin!
