A Vintage Christmas Mantle

Hi friends!  Is it just me or is time flying by at record speed?!

I finally got around to getting our stockings out of the attic and decorating the mantle.  Y'all know I'm not a big seasonal decorator, but I enjoyed added some vintage charm to our mantle this year.













I have these two old jars and it just so happens that one has a green lid and one has a red lid!



I love these two vintage-inspired ornaments.  I got them a couple of years ago for 75% off after Christmas.

I even used my antique bread pan and added a couple of vintage Christmas prints with magnets.

I also used my two old spools because I have a red one and green one.

Our stocking holders spell out "PEACE".  I splurged on our stockings and holders (Pottery Barn) ten years ago but I always put them back in the plastic and they still look brand new.

Our tree is yet to come - we always buy a live one.

I hope you are all enjoying bringing a little Christmas cheer into your homes!
