We've decided to not get an over mantel mirror until the sales in january so I had to cobble something together as my over mantel last night. I must say that it pays to keep decorative bits and pieces because they can be very useful in this type of situation. Granted I did pick up a few new bits this year but feel that they will be there for years to come. I usually stick to wreaths and trees as my 'things'. Also love things with words on them. I stayed decorating last night until 11 as I decided that while the sitting room was fabulous (if I may say so! - a lot of 'new room pride' going on here) my kitchen, the heart of the home, could do with a bit 'more'. Off to my box of tricks. I'll post a pic later. Baking today.
