After showing you some sneak peeks of my Christmas decor, I wanted to share the finished mantel for my formal living room. Even though it's a new house, I only purchased a few items for all my Christmas decorating, including the boxwood wreath. I've always wanted one and I figure I can use it all year around in different places around the house.
All my greenery throughout the house was free from a local tree farm. I stopped by to see if they had fresh garlands...which they didn't, but I got a truckload of free trimmings that they were about to haul away. Score!
The mirror is antique and my husband gave it to me for my birthday the first year we were married. The glass jars are from TJ Maxx and are usually around $10. I always have a few of those around to swap out seasonal decor. The chippy urn, saint statue, glitter "wish", and mercury glass votives were all picked up for under $5 each.
Still trying to decide if I like the fireplace screen there or not?
