Christmas Mantels


The Christmas Blogger Party over at http://www.atthepicketfence.com/ is going strong. Today is the Christmas mantel party being hosted by Kristin of
http://www.myuncommonsliceofsuburbia.com/ and Pamela of http://frommyfrontporchtoyours.blogspot.com/. So hop on over there and join the party! When I heard all about these Christmas parties going on in Blogland, I felt some sadness because I thought I wouldn't be able to join since I have decided not to put up my usual Christmas decorations. Our floors are being worked on and I have stuff and boxes all over so there is no room to put up a tree, and no time to do it.


I am also linking with Marty's Tabletop Tuesday at http://astrollthrulife.blogspot.com/


But then I thought I could post my old mantels, couldn't I? And so, I started looking at old photo files and pulled out our mantel pics from past christmasses and here they are.


We have 3 fireplaces in the house. This one is in the family room and it was from 2008.





Same fireplace in 2009


I usually put up a smaller white tree here but not this year.




Same fireplace last year, 2010





Kitchen in 2008. This was even before the TV was installed above the mantel.



Same kitchen mantel in 2009. You can see the white tree in the family room through the wet bar window on the left.



The formal living room mantel in 2008



Same living room mantel in 2009





Same living room mantel last year, 2010




The photo below of the living room mantel from last year concludes the Christmas mantel tour.
I hope you enjoyed seeing them.




Thanks to all our hosts and thank you all for taking a tour of our past Christmas mantels.
