Christmas has come and gone…so why am I posting a holiday mantel display? As I was going through things in our basement (initial packing for our move) I came across these ornaments. And I just had to do a quick arrangement for my series before putting them in a box.
Fireplace Mantel #25- Christmas Village
1. Use Ikea fabrics- wood plank (for the walls) and logs (for the firebox). The mantel remains Benjamin Moore’s China White.

…and a Happy New Year!
Note– Last Christmas I took photographs of some of the gifts I received as a visual record. I’ve decided to do this every year. I just wish I had started the project earlier…especially taking pictures of what my son Curtis got growing up.
