Christmas Mantle

I know I say this every year........but,  I think this is my favorite mantle...and I've done a few over the!

  It could be my favorite because I love the theme so much.

The family room is filled with my collection of Nativities.

I like to create my own nativities from bits and pieces that I have found over the years at yard sales and auctions.     

My Christmas banner is Love and Joy......

Next to the baby,  I think my favorite nativities pieces are the sheep......

Pink angel wings are stung across the mantle garland.

I have a large candle on each side of the mantle.
We always need extra seating during the Christmas season,  so I brought in  the chairs that were in front of the lit cabinet in the dining room.   I also have the piano bench nearby for extra seating.

 I have angels scattered throughout the room as well as in the Nativity vignettes.

The Nativity on the mantle is resting in a bed of roses and babies breath and I have  three stars lit  to make sure the wise men can find their way to the stable
  I hope to get the family room tree finished soon      I am very excited about this years tree... it's a little different than I usually have....
