After Landon and I put up our Christmas tree a few days ago, I spent a couple of hours today getting the last few boxes of Christmas decor from the attic and decorated the mantel and our living room.
Here is just a little tease of what the mantel looks like — yes, that hunk of stone is the top of our mantel. I’m dreaming of encasing that in a beautiful wood beam one of these days.
I do love how the mantel decor turned out and will reveal more in a Christmas Home Tour post soon. I could have gone for a rustic look but decided I wanted a gold and silver theme.
Remember the pillows Target sold last year with the picture of a truck with a tree? That inspired the toy truck with the bottle brush tree on our mantel.
My brother Oliver had just gifted this vintage Tonka truck to L for his birthday. Perfect timing!
I have been busy writing many more guides for eBay. Take a look at these unique items I found for Christmas tree decor:
