~ Christmas Mantel 2009 White & Black with Silver & Lime Green

I'm looking back at some of the Christmas Decorating 
from the last few years. So I'm going to re-post
a few pictures. I hope you all enjoy them, too. 
I use so many of these same things each year and
it's always fun to see how they looked in previous years.  
Christmas Mantel 2009
White & Silver
with a touch
of Black & Lime Green

There were no new purchases of ornaments and decorations this year. (Except for my oldest Nativity set got a few "new" pieces.) The only reason was that I had boxes and boxes of decorations that I didn't even use. This was after I gave boxes of things to Sweet Daughter. It amused her when she called and said that she was thinking of doing purple and red this year. Hey I've got a whole box of purple ( and another one of all red) goodies I told her! Of course you do was her answer. Her tree was beautiful and I loved seeing one in purple again.

I do not know exactly how this stuff accumulates!
It must multiple in the boxes stowed away from year to year. Hopefully it will be a total clean out after the Holdiays.

It will be quite a while before I get tired of the little lime green acorns. I've been using them for a few years now, and I still love the color they bring to the decorating. This is my favorite string of beads.

I would probably buy a few more of the large lime green acorns if I found them. Simply because 3 of them have broken, and they are so pretty! So you have seen most of the elements before. But I hope it is more simple this year though.

See Y'all Soon~

  1. Sometimes simple is the way to go, Donna! I threw out a bunch of stuff last year, replenished a little bit from the dollar store this year, but need to get a few new things. I'll hit the sales after Christmas and see what I can find.

  2. I too get very attached to my decorations...I love that color green Donna, if I see any acorns at the sales after Xmas I will let you know....

    Thanks for the peek into your pretty house..

    Kathy :)

  3. My om my! You had me at the first picture. You have dressed the house so beautifully this year. I love the femininity, and yet the simplicity of all the neutral embellishments. It is absolutley stunning, ,especially that mantle.
    Happy holidays!

  4. I love the touch of the lime green...looks great with the silver and black. Something about that little pop of green that is so very pretty. I use this color quite often in my mostly white home when I feel a need for a little color!
    Merry Christmas,

  5. I've grown so fond of lime green in the past year and I love the use of it on your mantle. I think your home is beautifully decorated and it looks very peaceful ~

  6. Donna, it's all beautiful, as I come to expect from you! Simple or not, it's gorgeous. I still love those lime green acorns too & will probably have to do a little after Christmas shopping for more lime green. Hope you have a Merry Christmas!!

  7. What a delightful blog you have, honey. Just found you, but how could I have missed you for so long? Hmmmm, I'm here now though. Just darling. Nice to meet you, Donna. Drop by and see my Christmas tree if you have a minute. I'm adding you to my Google Reader so I won't miss another post...
    Merry Christmas,

  8. What a great post, I love the mantels just beautiful The fireplace alone is gorgeous.
