A Christmas Mantel

 Decorating our fireplace mantel for Christmas
Collections and handmade treasures
My passion is shabby French
 Religious treasures, created and found
 Mixing shabby whites with reds and neutrals
Antique booties, as if time stood still
Adorned candles 
French wrapped
Candlesticks and crosses
Merry Christmas to all
and to all
 a beautiful holiday wish. 

xo Rhonda

Simple but full of passion is what I see! I spied the tiny little cloche in such a unique shape... one of my passions! And the handmade cloth cross resting on the velvet book is so very charming. Thanks for sharing and have a very merry Christmas, Rhonda!
