LOVE the mercury glass!
And this is where I started to lose control…I love this mantel!! (I really, really want to take our TV down from above the fireplace after seeing this. Maybe just for the holidays? Wonder what the husband would think of a giant mercury glass pine cone hanging from the front of the TV?)
And this was just the icing. I love the placement of this garland! The cabinet is simple and clean just like the garland. The blue of the cabinet is perfect with the green.
Gilchrist says she adds depth to the tree by lighting “every inch.” I try to do this every year….after I have carefully “coated” about 1/4 of my tree with lights, I’m over it and start tossing them on. This year, this is going to be my motivation to keep stringing!
Every year, Gilchrist chooses a ribbon color as a theme for all her decorations (note the wreath and gift below.) I love this idea and will definitely be doing that! Now I need to think of what color to choose this year…..
