Mantle decor for 2010

I was trying to get my mantle done so I can join the Holiday Home Linky Party. So here's my mantle for this year.
I startred with greenry that I had , wound two of the lenghts together so its nice and thick, and fluffed then added my lights, that I had also. Then came new red shiny poinsettas, along with a brown and gold ones that I had from last year. Then added my bow for the middle, and beads ( shhh those are mardi gras beads) LOL.... added ormanents from walmart $1.00 ,( Total $6.00.) Also some from pottery barn that I got 3 years ago for 25cents.
Then added chocolate brown stocking and intals for my Hubbs and me. Two gold dears for TJMaxx. Over the mantel is Santa and his favorite team, framed in a $2.00 frame, and ornaments hung on red and gold ribbon. Below is a snow scene , feather trees I got a yard sale for $4.00, added ormanets as tree toppers, and Santa also a yard sale $4.00. sitting a wrought iron bench , (Ross $ 9.00), add some fake blanket snow , last years 75% sale at Garden Ridge.$1.00....and a pillow I got as a gift. And so there it is all pretty and beautiful for ths year.
Now I have 999 other things to do before I get the rest done. Thanks for looking!!!!
