I have not done as much for Christmas this year-for some reason I just feel like I want things kind of simple. This is my mantel.
I have had some of these pieces for thirty years.
Pretty simple. I always said I would never get too old to do Christmas d├ęcor in a big way-well guess what?  Yeah, I am eating my words. I wonder sometimes if we weren't exposed to all of this Christmas advertising from July onwards, if we would all have a simpler Christmas. I am joining Marty at for Inspire Me Tuesday.

Those pieces are very pretty, and I'm sure they carry many memories. I always say, "I hope I never get too old to decorate seasonally in a big way." So far so good -- at least for this year!

Thanks for popping in and checking out my clothespin tree!

From what I have heard this year lots of folks are going simple with the decorations. I know I am because the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas is so short this year. ALSO,my biggest thing this year is I know what I put out I will have to go back and put away so I am thinking of the ole back. Do not want to get where I cannot walk again. BTW the mantel looks very festive. Peace
