Christmas Mantles-Past

Happy Black Friday!

Yes, I braved the crowds, got pushed around a little, but managed to come home with everything that I intended to. (And a few things I didn't plan on).

I did hear about somebody getting backhanded over a $1.30 towel at the Wal-Mart that I was shopping in.

Craziness, I tell you.

Now that the holiday season is officially upon us, I am working on my getting my house decked out.

Until the house is company ready, here is a look at the past 2 Christmases in this house (at least where the mantles are concerned.)

The look this year is already different from the last 2 but you'll have to wait a little bit longer for those pictures. In the meantime, let's get in the time machine and go back to 2009.

Remember, this was before the fireplace went white. And the backs of the built-ins went blue, then went darker blue. And the walls went blue. Lots of changes in 2 years people.

I'm nothing if not consisent in my indecisivness.

Downstairs mantle before it went white.

Oh, that's right. You haven't seen that finished product yet

I'm slacking on you people. Sorry.

Then we move on to 2010. Here's the upstairs mantle, which I really loved.

And the downstairs mantle.

New stuff in the works for the 2010 holiday. Come back for ideas (good or bad :) ) or just to be nosy!
