Rustic Sign that Inspired Me to Update the Mantel for Christmas

When I woke up this morning, I got the bright idea to change the Christmas decor on my mantel…

Before today, the mantel consisted of my usual black and white photo grouping with a few Christmas additions.  You can see it in the background here…

Kind of plain, but totally fine…

Suddenly today, I felt like trying something new so I pulled out the Snow Day artwork that I recently bought at Michael’s Craft Store.  Originally, I had planned to bring this to our place in Vermont next time we go up.

But it works in here for Christmas too!  It kind of brings a fun, festive vibe to the family room.

I also brought in my skiing Santa that I used on my kitchen stove mantel last year.  My boys are really into skiing so the artwork and the Santa made sense in here.  Let’s see how they like the new look when they get home from school.

Although, I am not thrilled with how the silver stocking hangers look in the mix, I think I will keep the mantel like this through Christmas.

    It's very pretty this way. I'm completely guilty of messing with my decorations right up until Christmas!

    The layout of your kitchen/family room is similar to mine. Those are the rooms we used the most. I like to change my mantel with the season, we all enjoy the change. I love your pretty sign and the Santa. I'm sure your kids love the new decor.
