A Snowy Mantle....

This was so pretty, I just had to show it to you. It's Joy's mantle.
She has a lovely blog called Joys of Home.
I too find myself reluctant to take down all of my Christmas things. I have two poinsettias that are still big and beautiful. I'll keep them out. I'll also leave out my snowmen for awhile. Since I'm planning to make some snowmen ornaments this month to prepare for a fall craft sale and for my shop, I may leave the tree up and replace the decorations with the snowmen I make. I'll have to give it some thought. We still have one more "Christmas" with my mother-in-love on Sunday. Then it will be time for my "final answer".
Blessings to you!

May I suggest?
This is What it's All About


  1. Beautiful mantle. I wish you a very Happy New Year!

  2. Why Not!!!! who says you can't keep your decorations up as long as you desire..... there are no "decoration police".... :0)


  3. I'm a fan of Joys of Home too! I almost left my Alpine tree up so I could decorate it for the other seasons and holidays but wasn't sure? Maybe next year! Looking forward to seeing your snowmen.


Hello! I love it when you all talk back!
Your comments have helped me through the hardest time of my life.
Thank you!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, or you need a response, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments. I will try to answer each question and request. It just may take me some time.

Be blessed!
