Christmas mantle Simple and Understated

I love Christmas!!!!  I love the decorations, the lights, music, the spirit of caring, giving and love.  It seems to bring out the best in most people.  Oh and did I say the smells of Christmas, yummmm.......   This year I went with  simple and a bit of sophistication.  I love how it turned out.  I wish I could have each of you over so you could see it in person with all the lights on!

All the candles are battery operated with a timer.  What will they think of next!
Last Christmas I found these candle holders at Goodwill, they were brown pottery looking things.  Spray paint can do wonders!
some mercury glass mark down from last year.
I use to put these red bead on my tree.  I have had them for 25 years!

Merry Christmas!
