Greetings! We’re already half way through December… how did that happen?!

Due to the fast approaching big deadline, I’m super grateful to get this year’s Christmas mantel up on the blog!

Nature-Inspired Christmas mantel with lantern

This Christmas mantel design all came about thanks to a gifted reproduction lantern that I just HAD to use! In this post, I take you through how I pull a story together… for absolutely free! Gotta love those local wind storms knocking down branches along country roads…

I also got my Christmas tree fully finished, so I’ll be sharing that next week!

So onto you! Here’s some last minute fab features on how to get ready for the holidays, thanks to last week’s party

  1. thank you so much for including my gingerbread themed Christmas tree in your feature, Miss Donna! (i’m still laughing that i just *happened* to hit on a popular trend this year – gingerbread – without even knowing it!!!)

    Merry Christmas, my friend… may your holiday be wonderful. thank you for all of the inspiration and encouragement you give all year long to so many creative people!

  2. Your mantel is absolutely beautiful! It’s so warm and rustic, the perfect spot to enjoy the holidays. Thank you so much for hosting, Donna. Have a Merry Christmas!
