This clock, which sits on our mantel, belonged to my maternal grandmother. We've used lots of red and gold this year, to decorate the mantel.
Of course, I'm a dish-a-holic, and a Christmas mantel would not be complete without a few dishes. :) The large brass candlesticks belonged to my mother.
This small framed piece of needlework was a thrift store find.
More dishes, of course. ;)
It's been raining cats and dogs for two days now, and I'm beginning to get cabin fever. But at least it is forcing me to get out the Christmas decorations. If we ever get some sunshine, I'll take a decent wide angle picture of the entire mantel... In the meantime, back to the decorations.
