Welcome to Fox Hollow at Christmas
I’m really excited to share our
Cottage Christmas Holiday Mantel with you.

It’s a little different this year.
We’ve got snowmen, a frosty garland,
candy canes and lots of ornaments.

Come See!

This frosty head Qt is the star of the show.
I just love him!

He got left in the box last year.
(I’m hope he doesn’t hold that against me?)

I went a little crazy with the ornaments..
I can’t help it.
I love the sparkle & shine!
I mixed my most treasured, vintage Shiny Brites in with the not so vintage ones and added them all over.

My tea stained rag doll has her very own little tree
and the newest seat in the house.

I bought this sweet little chair in Bandon, Oregon
a few months ago and I’ve been saving it for Christmas.
I just love the vintage, ticking stripe fabric.

This is our first Christmas since the
Fireplace Makeover and it’s a real treat
to get to decorate the hearth!

I might have went a little overboard?
Oh well!

I’ve actually been holding on to
a few things since Summer
and the vintage, RC Cola Crates
are also making their debut ;)

Jim and I picked the crates up at the city wide sale that was held in Myrtle Point over the Summer. Jim got some scaffolding, so we
were both very satisfied with our prizes!

It’s fun finally getting to use them.
I just knew they needed to be filled with ornaments.

    No way! I am in love with your mantel! I don’t even have words to express how cute it is! I love that snowman, that chair, the colors. You knocked it out of the park. I tried to work my Coke crate into my mantel, but no such luck. I should just copy what you did! Lol
