January Mantel

While my sister was here last week she helped me do a little January decorating.  It's always fun working with her, she has so many great ideas.  Both of my sisters have an eye for design.
Today I'll show you the mantel.
Grandma Ruby's skiers.
Luminara Candles from QVC.  The faux flame looks so real.
Vintage book & long ago pictures of me in the snow.
Candles glowing, always make a cold January day cozy.
We're setting record lows here in Oklahoma this morning.  So thankful I'm at home staying warm.

Ruby's skier people look right at home with the freezing temps and snow outside. Stay warm.

The comment above was really me not Mike. Guess I used his sign in first. Oops, sorry about that.

Be a sweetie,

I love the idea with the vintage book and old photos. I have most all our older family photos and am looking for ways to display them. Blessings

Hi Carol-
Happy New Year!

Mine looks a little bare after Christmas.

Enjoyed visiting,

First off, your wood surround fireplace and mantel are gorgeous, Carol! Those are such sweet little figurines, and I adore the idea of the old pics clipped to a vintage book -- I just may have to borrow that idea!

Looks great. I love the way y'all clipped the photos in the book.
