My Storybook Christmas Mantle...

As I said last week,
I am shaking it up a bit for Christmas...

using fresh greenery..


so...
over the weekend I made this fresh swag
with Laurel from the garden...

and today decked out my mantle...


fresh pine saplings tucked in urns
bookend the mantle vignette...


I wanted my vignette
 to have a Christmas Storybook feel...


 a warmly lit cottage in the wood
felt like a good place to start...


this sweet reproduction Victorian scrap ornament
is my favorite...

a whimsical delight...


do you believe in storybook magic?
I do...



sailing silently...



lights out...


and goodnight,
sweet dreams my lovely friends...

isn't that is how all happy stories end?

Tonight I am linking to...
and

Thanks for stopping by today!
