Oh I Need A Little Christmas

 Just this very minute
 
 I need a little Christmas....right now!
I didn't think it was going to happen. 
 I questioned if all this would get up.
But it did.
 Christmas Mantel 2019.
I'll share other photos of it at night.
 My sister gave me this tree a few years ago. 
It has yellowed over the years.
Just makes it look more vintage. I think.
I hope.
 
I could not bring myself to take the frames down off my mantel. 
I have had them up for a couple of years and just decorate around them. 
I just like the way they fill out the wall. 

I did manage to finally gold leaf this small vintage frame. 
It's been up here for two years in a dingy brown.
Now it's finally a crusty gold leaf. Much better.
Now it fits right in with the other vintage frames.










I love bottle brush trees. Can you tell?
The tree. 
This little tree I've had for several years and sadly this is 
the first year it's gotten fully decorated. 
I've just done lights for the past three or four years. 

A shame cause I have many beautiful vintage ornaments.
I'll share more tomorrow.

Hi Nita! I have been reading your blog ever since you began again, and it is always nice to see your post in my email. I don't know if this will work, as Google seems to have cut some of us out of the loop. I no longer blog, but if you are on IG, I will follow you there. Your decor is beautiful -- I love your colors!
