yeah yeah yeah…as much as i LOVE valentine's day i'm not ready to put up pink and red just yet.
i modified our christmas mantel to make it more fitting for a new year's eve/winter theme.
first i took off anything red or green, anything that said "christmas" on it, and got rid of the stockings.
i took a gold and silver jewel/pine cone garland and hung it through the stocking hooks:
next i embellished the ornament wreath with a glitter feather and a "six".
i flanked the mantel on either side with arrangements of peacock feathers, silver/gold feathers, pearls, silver pinwheels (found locally), and other shimmery goodies.
and last but not least, i gathered all of the glittered accents from the christmas decor (reindeer, snowflakes, angels, "joy",etc) and scattered them across the mantel:
so there you have it! ready for 2012! happy friday! xxo
