Are you getting sick of my mantle yet? I have lived in this house for 4 years, and I never really decorated for the seasons or holiday's. I don't know what my problem was. I think I was intimidated or something. But now I get inspired by so many girls blogs that I want to cute up my house too!
You know the girls out there right? I look at some blogs and want to reach through my computer and onto theirs and punch them in the neck because I am so angry and jealous of their beautiful houses. If my camera zoomed out enough , you would see the rest of my family room, and if you had any envy now, you would only have sympathy and want to come help me clean it up. PROMISE!
I am still switching out my fillers in my apothecary jars. EASY. And who knew to use epsom salt for snow? (All those fabulous girls with the fabulous houses and blogs knew.)
Most of the other fillers were a clearance garland cut up. Cheapo. The large empty frame was a frame I had a plan for but never did. It looked cute empty. Then I just put in some snowflake garland.
Did you all know that Joanne's does 70% off christmas clearance, before it is christmas? And they send out a 20% additional coupon too. So I got lots of this stuff for over 80% off before christmas!
Like this cute deer friend. I know he looks a little arrogant and acts like he is too good for us all. But he is really sweet. He only acts like this because all his bud's were purchased full price. And he was the only one left at such a good clearance price of $6. I love him and bought him. He is still ashamed, but we are working on our relationship. He is coming around.
There will not be a valentines mantle. Too short a holiday. Plus winter goes until march ish right? So we will go strait to spring.
