First up... The mantle
|Do you see Santa's boot? So cute!|
Here is my card holder. I love Christmas cards. We never really sent them out as a family, so its all kind of new to me.
This is a frame without the glass. I wrapped the cardboard backing with wrapping paper and I hot glued ribbon. I use the cutest little clothes pins to hang my cards with.
This is the first Christmas since my mom passed. It also makes this the 19th Christmas without my dad. After mom passed away I went through my childhood decorations and took the most important ones to me. The first was the angel tree topper.
Another thing I took were two of my mom's Christmas bears... er mouses.
I made those pillows last year and the blanket a few years ago.
I also set up a small tree in our kitchen with these other decorations.
I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas/holiday. This year is going to be a tough one, but having my mom's decorations up makes me smile.
