I wish I could slow time and freeze these magical days spent with a little baby-turning-toddler running around. I know I cannot, so I try to savor every moment and soak it all in. I try not to cram too much into our already busy lives and I try to give him my full attention although I know I often fall short. But I love each new day and we are really enjoying the holidays over here. I hope you are too, as imperfect and wonderful as each day may be:)
Today our Christmas Cheer Holiday Link Party is showcasing mantles at Ten June. Can’t wait to see your mantles!
Many of you know we don’t have a true “mantle” in our home, but that doesn’t stop me from creating “mantlescapes” on a console table or, this year, on a counter in our butler’s pantry. I continued with the metallic theme we’ve got going on in the stairs and tree and used fresh garland from Lynch Creek Farms after reading the recommendation from Centsational Girl. I like the addition of real greenery, especially since our tree isn’t real.
