Holiday Mantel....

Hi all..,, I am starting to decorate for the Holidays. I began with the mantel in my living room. I am now in a crazy White phase , so this year my theme is White Farmhouse Vintage Cottage!!!! Who says we can't have it all !!!! LOL I started with a huge Joy sign I ordered from a sweet gal on Etsy. When I flipped it over I was delighted to see a chippy White barnyard door!!!! Score !!!!!! I also strung a beautiful vintage cloth decorated with old Christmas cards...Etsy purchase too!!!! I then added simple White flowers and two Luminara candles. These candles are awesome!!! Looks like a real flame....purchased these at QVC. So my mantel is done..,.simple and sweet...oh and WHITE!!!! LOL Now for mantel # 2......

My sign flipped over... from ShoreWoodBay on Etsy...,.

Looks pretty standing up with wreath as well....

Lemon leaf wreath......

 

Luminara candles vintage card garland from thegirlsmom on Etsy

Pretty and simple......

It's beginning to look a lot like....,..,

  5. You mean I wouldnt have had to paint Joy on the sign! LOL I am so jealous of your white. I cant change this year and live to tell about it:) My cabin was built to look like a barn with the loft and all. I may be able to find more of the doors when we go back"home" or should I say my old home. I have one that is well worn sitting outside the cabin right now as I ponder what to do with it! If you keep all these great ideas coming I am going to loose my mind in envy..LOL
    Happy Thanksgiving!
