Blessing #165 - Christmas Fantle

I thought I was done with Christmas decorating, but I guess I had one little bit of Christmas left in me.

Yesterday, the fantle (fake mantle) in my dining room looked empty so I decided to work on the look. Most of the time, I work on a mantle for a few days tweaking and working on it as I walk by, but this fantle didn't take long at all.  I really like the way it looks.  

I like that it's not too Christmasey.  Christmas is just a week away, but I just have to change the chalkboard art to make this unChristmasey.

I layered a gold frame on top of a window and hung this greenery in the middle.  I just went outside and cut some greenery off some bushes we have.  Then I bunched the greenery together with a pony tail elastic and wrapped the ribbon around it.

I used to hate gold, but I'm really starting to warm up to it.  Now, I'm not pulling a Donald Trump and guilding everything, but I am starting to use it more.

Here's how it looks with the rest of the dining room.  I just snapped this picture this morning so yes, those are baby crocs in the floor and a Diet Dr. Pepper on the table.

My living room Christmas look is red and green, but the dining room has a blue vintage feel to it.  I really love it.
