santa's entry way...

I am so happy you came back for another peek at my holiday nest!  Today I am sharing my fireplace for White Wednesday...

I am loving the old mirror!  I usually use fake greenery since Jake and I have a lot of allergies and I do not have to worry about them drying out!  I found these little picks years ago...
The greens are a softer color with blue berries.  I got the pearl like fillers from Pottery Barn after Christmas one year and instead of candles I rolled some sheet music...


One of my favorite pieces for the mantel is the Santa stocking holder I found at Homegoods ~ wish they had 3 more...


I love the little tree in his sack...
Some jingle bells and one of my favorite ornaments dress up my chippy white sled...

I fell in love with this arrangement at the shop that was in Jeannie's booth and knew I had the perfect spot for it...

What are the holidays without a few little bears...
We usually hang our stockings by the chimney with care on Christmas Eve.  I would love some vintage white ones but my kids are very traditional and would not like the change.  The ones we have are pretty velvet stockings in hunter green and cranberry with little jingle bells.  So, what do you think of Santa's entry way?  I love how it came out!  Thank you for hosting Kathleen ~ I am off to Faded Charm to see all the wonderful whites!  Thank you for visiting!!

I wish you had been able to get more stocking holders too...He is fantastic! 'Course one makes such a great statement.
Santa will have stars in his eyes when he makes his entrance...and not from hitting his head on the little fence, but from all the beauty on your mantle!

Thanks for the "welcome back" Sandi! Love all the little Christmas vignettes in your home. I haven't even started yet, which is not like me. :( I wanted to add that the mirror looks lovely on your mantel. Very sweet! Looking forward to the shop Christmas party...hope I can make it.

Hi Sandi
It is so fun to go around and see everyones decorating tastes. Love the whites you used but I know what you mean about changing things up. Some things you just get tied into and you have to keep with it. I have the vintage wool stockings I found and tack those up for affect but have the traditional stockings I fill
Many Blessings
Rebecca
