Christmasing On The Mantel

 Hello, Dear Ones!
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving.
We certainly did and now it's time for the Christmasing!

Some of you saw my little truck I found! Isn't he the cutest thing?
He just had to be the centerpiece on my mantel.
He just needs his headlights to light up but alas they don't.
I'll get over it. :)

 There you go! I even lit the fire for you as our temps have dropped and it actually feels like wintertime. The 40s here on the island feels like the 30s! Brrrr...

 I found these two glitter houses at Marshalls for $9.99 a piece!
 Yay! Aren't they sweet and they have a little light inside so all the windows light up! 
Perfect, I think!
I kinda wanted an old fashioned looking mantel this year and used my ornament wreath.
I have to tell you that I made that thing over 6 or 7 years ago!
Do you remember when HGTV was really great with wonderful decorating shows and do it yourself shows? Remember Room By Room with Matt and Shari? Well, Shari made an ornie wreath and I just had to make one too. Last year or so I poked it on top of a fake pine wreath to make it look bigger.
I'm so talented as I sprayed it lightly with white paint to make it look like snow!
 Wish I had put colored lights on my garland but shoot it already the little clear ones and I just didn't want to change them. 

Oh, my goodness! My little angel is totally bored with all of this and slightly embarrassed 
as I poked a little candle ring on top of her head! 
I just wanted to make her look festive.

I'll leave you with a little Note Song ~

I'll Be Home For Christmas

I'll be home for Christmas
I'll be home for Christmas
you can plan on me
please have snow and mistletoe
and presents on the tree
Christmas eve will find me
where the lovelight gleams
I'll be home for Christmas
if only in my dreams
