I Think My Mantle Won The Gaudy Award

I think my mantle could win the gaudy award if there were one! It has all my favorite colors...
aqua, pink, green...and lots of glitter.
These are all things I have collected over the years.

I just manage to make it a little gaudier each year.
The glitter snowflakes were an impulse buy from the dollar store. O.K. pink, green and aqua snowflakes...can't help myself...I love them.
...Most of the other glittery stuff I bought years ago for literally pennies after Christmas....
...Yes, I know...not very traditional...but delightful and Christmasy to me any way....
My nephew said he liked my Mardi Gras display....Thanks Gene...See if I invite you over again.
But all the birds!!! I love birds...I need to find a glittery owl to add to the mixture....
there is an owl who lives in my side yard. Each night we hear him hooting....
....it's a very lonesome sound...The cardinals are back for the winter and I ofter hear them calling in the morning...
The blue flocked birds are back as well. They don't say much.
Hope your Christmas decorating makes you smile.

I must say my decorations are quite boring compared to yours! Please come decorate my mantle - it has two candle holders on each end and that's it! BORING!!

To quote a certain customer of yours, "I like big and I like gaudy." LOL
Really though....I love your mantle, because it forces the eye to explore.
