Hankie Christmas Mantle

Silver, Sage and White are my colors this year. It's so "out of the box" for me.






I have been on a search for YEARS to find the letters on hankies to do this mantle! I saw one like MINE in a decorating magazine a few years ago and KNEW that I wanted to DO that!

SO, with the help from Carol, I was able to Finally have my Hankie Christmas Mantle!!! Thank you Carol!!! I couldn't find the letter's I and Y and with Carol's help...ta-da!!!

I think it's just lovely.

I'll show my Christmas tree in the next post! Looking forward to seeing your Christmas Decor!

Warmly,

deb :)

Deb,

What a darling idea!!

I may have to steal this idea, Uhmm, borrow, this idea. I don't have a mantel, it will have to go on a sideboard.
