2013 Christmas Mantel

As many of us bloggers do, every year I try to switch up our Christmas mantel. (God forbid I have the same mantelscape 2 years in a row!) So out came a few of my old special addition holiday magazines...I can't bare to toss them out...just to peruse once more through some of their beautifully decorated rooms. This year I found myself drawn to more earthy or woodsy Christmas images and thus was born our 2013 Christmas mantel.

How is your holiday decorating going?

Sharing this post over at these wonderful blog link parties...


  1. Hi Barbara,

    I feel like I've just been walking in THE winter wonderland of the famous Christmas carol! Your mantel, will I'm sure, now be an inspiration for all who see IT! You've incorporated all of my favourite colours, so anything you would have done with that would have been pleasing to me. But, it's your amazing attention to detail in this gorgeous scene, that has me glued to the screen!

    Thanks for sharing the loveliness, (and keeping those pretty magazines)!

    Merry Christmas!


  2. I could sit in front of your fire,for hours on end,admiring your beautiful tree and mantel.....

  5. Lost my comment- darn it! Anyway, I said that I LOVE this mantle. I think it is my favorite I have seen anywhere. I love the whimsical little houses and your tree is gorgeous, too! Beautiful, Barbara, Beautiful!!!! xo Diana

  6. How pretty, I miss having a mantel. In this home we have a fire place for which I am grateful(I love fires) but no mantel.

  7. Gorgeous....I love what you did. I am so jealous....I'd love to have a fireplace to decorate. You did a wonderful job!

  8. Your mantel is lovely, certainly worthy of a magazine. My decorating has been minimal this year. I finally got the tree up, and have one, count-em...one, other decoration. This morning I got up to find that the lights on the tree do not work. They worked when I went to bed last night but not this morning. It's starting to look a lot like a minimal Christmas. ;)

  9. Oh how gorgeous! I really love that little stone house, what a great idea!
    Beautifully done!

  10. Barbara your last picture looks just like a Christmas card. Beautiful!

  12. I could use you to come decorate my house. I just do not have that much energy. But it sure looks like it was worth it.

  13. OMG Barbara...that last shot is STUNNING!!!! I love it all!

  14. well, my decorating was going pretty well until I saw yours!!!! I have no imagination, so mine tends to look pretty much the same year after year :^(
    I do have lots and lots of lights and ribbon and greenery and MUSIC!! so I guess it will do for this year!!
    Thank you so much for sharing your lovely pictures!
    Blessings to you this beautiful season, may He give you the desires of your heart.

  15. Barbara, Your mantle is beautiful and I appreciate you sharing it at the Open House party. Happy Holidays!
