Christmas on the mantel

I thought I would show you some Christmas accents I have added to the mantel:

Byers Choice Williamsburg Carolers in the midst of permanent garlands and fruit sprays:

A bit of brass accent – you can sort of see the Colonial Apple Cone stocking hanger (on the lower right) and a Florentine brass candelabra:

Speaking of stockings, I added a blown glass stocking ornament to each of the stocking this year. I thought the ornaments added a bit of whimsical charm to things. The stockings are from Bucks County, Pennsylvania. I love the look of satin mixed with patterned velvet:

Thanks for visiting me. I hope you enjoyed my Christmas display with a bit of Colonial flavor on the mantel. Till next time!
