Good morning! Isn't it funny how sometimes we know exactly how we want something to look...lets say a mantle and it just goes together with the greatest of ease, and yet other times we can do nothing right. Well this is my mantle in the sunroom and honestly I think I had the last mercury ball in place and the candles lit within half and hour and that was that.On the other hand my mantle in the living room took a wee bit longer, like oh maybe ALL morning !! I think part of it was because I had used alot of my Christmas things in the sunroom and also I did not want them to look the same, although I did want the same sort of feel for both of them. Anyway, blah blah blah... enough said..... hope you like No.1.... I will post No.2 in a bit......P.S. If you "click" on the photos you will be able to see them better, it is a very dull day here again and the light was not the best, I got rid of my stubby candles after I took the first photo as well.

Well, darling girl...I had NO idea you were doing a blog now. We need some sort of thingy that flashes on our own blogs, telling of new "kids on the block"!
Many thanks for coming over and leaving a message so I could find you. I will add you to my blog roll so I won't lose you...
You know I have ALWAYS loved your decorating style, Sea Cliff...
Now, i gotta run look at the rest of your blog...

This mantle is perfect! Natural, shimmery and vintage, love how you are able to tie all the elements together for a stunning display. Just about finished my Christmas shopping yesterday, but will be awhile before I start decorating! Have a great day!

Hey Chrissy!
This is all so beautiful...you have a style that's your very own girl...I think you could market it as Chrissy's style and make a fortune! It looks like something out of a magazine...perfect. I feel like sometimes my vignettes are so easy to throw together and sometimes I can work on an area all day and still not get my eye satisfied! LOL! So I understand how you felt about the other area you talked about. It all looks wonderful! Hope you have a great day....please stop back over...I posted something today, that I want every blogger friend and then some to read...
xoxo,
Queenie
