Red and White Christmas Mantel

Hi friends,
It's hard to believe December is here, where has this year gone?!
The hardest part of time passing by is when I look at my kids.
One day they're little...
The next day, they don't need my help that much...
And then, they're almost getting out of school and going their own way!

Anyways, that's life. :'(

With the arrival of December, the Christmas season has begun at RLC.
I worked on the Wooden Snowflake Art last week, and during the weekend I got the mantel together. Unlike last year's mantel, this one I wanted it simple and with lots of red. ;)

polka dot and striped stalkings

I think those two parts were achieved.

The same fabrics I used to make the heart ornaments were used one more time to make these stockings. So far, these are my all time favorites. I'm loving all the red.

Ha, and those ruffled cuffs. :)

I might write another post about them.

This might also be called a snowflake mantel, those flakes are falling everywhere.

Mr. RLC's old red sweaters got new life as pillow cases, of course they had to have a snowflake.

Finally, some candles giving all that snowy scenery some warmth. ;)

  3. So fun, Cristina! Love your little pleated cuffs! And, I feel exactly the same about my little guy being so big! :(

  4. What creative touches you have added. The stockings are too cute with their mixed patterns. I'm so envious of you who actually have a mantle that can be decorated. Mine is too narrow to do anything other than hang stockings.

  5. This is gorgeous! My standard Christmas colors are blue and silver but I think red and white will make a debut next year!


  6. I love the red and white! Great pillows too.

  7. This mantel is so cute. I love the red and white and snowflakes. Your stockings are fabulous.
