Christmas Mantle…

Ideas have swirled through my head as to what the Christmas mantle should look like…After several days of playing and rearranging, I think I have finally come to the conclusion to just ‘let it be’!


I love the all the stag heads I’ve been seeing this Christmas season and fell in love with this print that I found on Society6.   So much so, that I also ordered matching pillow covers for my living room.

I’m sure most of you have seen the silver grocery store signs used in several of my holiday posts…beCauSE they are my most FAVORITE way to change décor on my mantle.  I love using vintage postcards for these signs!


With just a week left until Christmas Day, the fresh greenery brings in a beautiful look to the mantle décor as well.


IMG_8258IMG_8288The bleached burlap stockings were sent to me from a girlfriend who knew I was searching for something unique! They originally came with glittery adornments but I took them off to keep the stockings simple.  Although while taking these photo’s I remembered these hammered ornaments I recently made at a local craft night with the kids initials ~ so I hung them in front of each of the stockings. 


After last years great room remodel, we purchased this tall and skinny  faux Christmas tree from Home Depot ~ it seems to be the perfect fit for this room.  I love the tree sitting right next to the mantle, it makes everything so cozy!


Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas from Fishtail Cottage!

I'm loving the stag heads I've seen this year too. In fact, my Christmas cards have an image of one (I used a Graphics Fairy image). And that fresh greenery looks so abundant - usually people don't use enough.
