Salty Sister Decorates - Christmas Mantle 2010


Hi everyone.  I hope your Thanksgiving was great.  We had a full house, I fed 10 adults and 7 children.  It was fun and all had a good time.

But, you know there has to be a but, and fortunately with that much family around there wasn't a butt, but there was sickness.  Our two 1 year olds came down with upper respiratory infections, viruses they call um, and four of us adults came down with the stomach flu.  Oh Yea, that was some fun.

All is well now and I'm off to tackle some Christmas decorating.

Linking with Layla at The Lettered Cottage

So here it is I hope you like it and thank you for stopping by.
































Thank you for looking hope you are having a good time looking at all the fabulous mantles.  Please let me know you came by with some comment love, I would love to come visit you as well.

See ya.

Not only is your mantle stunning, but the back drop you had to work with is amazing as well.

I love all of the pictures you took, the ornaments look even more gorgeous up close. Your mantle has a very cozy feel and I'd love to cuddle up in that chair with a good book.
