A Quiet Place

My Christmas mantel this year isn't much different than last year.  I used the same garland, but added a large container of pears and pomegranates to the center.  

The candlesticks are elevated on stacks of old books that add charm and age to the vignette.

The mantel is anchored on one side with the clock ~

and on the other end is the mantel lamp decked out in it's red shade just for Christmas.

But next to the mantel is a different chair this year.  I sold my old wing back chair at the store and in it's place is my daughter's club chair from when 
she moved back home this summer.  It is a comfortable and quiet place to sit.

Tucked behind the chair is a sled I'm working on to sell at the store, but I kind of like it there and may end up keeping it.

There's nothing like white twinkle lights to create a Christmas atmosphere in the evenings.

I told you this is a quiet and comfortable place to sit and one usually has to fight Charley for the chair.

Very pretty and I love how it snows in your house. So waiting on snow to happen.

How pretty! Your falling snowflakes are charming too. I think you should keep the sled, it is just too special to part with.
