It's beginning to look a lot like...

CHRISTMAS!!!! 

My favorite time of the year!!!!  I LOVE Christmas.  I love decorating for Christmas.  I love everything about it.  The more the merrier... ornaments and decorations that is.  Glitter, sparkling things, scented pine cones, ribbon, feathers, I LOVE IT ALL!  This year, I changed my mantel up and hung the garland, instead of shoving it in the "hole" above the fireplace.  And I love it!  I loaded it with a few of my favorite things!  Now I just hope and pray that the command hooks do their job and keep it up, instead of shattering my hopes and dreams ornaments.  Here's a few pics!  Thanks for stopping by if you are coming over from Layla's Holiday Home Mantel Linky Party!  I'll post again by Dec 9th to show off my pride and joy Christmas Tree!

Your mantle looks great! I bet the command hooks will hold. My kids put their super heavy backpacks on them and they are still going strong.

Oh what FUN!! I especially love your garland... the colors are GREAT!! :) It just makes me smile to look at it! I bet you have a lot of fun with that opening above your mantle... a merchandiser's dream!! ;)

I LOVE your garland and I was so hoping that you would say you had bought it somewhere, because I know how to shop, but I do NOT know how to creat gorgeous garland!

Pretty please, where did you find your reindeer stocking holders?

Melissa- The garland is just a strand from Michaels, loaded with ornaments, ribbons, and those $.59 picks from craft stores! You can totally do it! The stocking holders were from Target around 4-5 years ago!

Thanks everyone for the compliments. It's def. my most favorite time of the year!
