The Sunroom Mantle

I usually decorate with all traditional Christmas décor and I still do but took a slight variation with the mantle in the sunroom this year. I am not a neutral kind of girl. I love color. However, I did throw in a neutral vintage chalkboard this year.

I purchased the faux greenery this year at Hobby Lobby because it is so real looking.I have had everything else for many years.

The chalkboard also covers an oil painting of my great grandparents house. The painting stays on this mantle all of the time. I usually drape a piece of red toile fabric over the painting and then I just sat the chalkboard in front of it.

The pair of cherubs on each end also stay here year round. They were gifts from a dear family friend who has gifted us with wonderful accessories for the past 30 years! One of the cherubs got broken but I glued it back together and I still love it!

The gold glass ornaments were purchased at the Pottery Barn Outlet many years ago.

The gold cherub ornaments came from Michael’s many years ago.

You can see my den mantle here.

I’ll be linking to the mantle party at the Lettered Cottage. Click over to see the party!

Also, there’s still time to order Bethlehem Christmas Dinnerware by clicking here.

Don’t forget to savor the season!

Merry Christmas!

I've been trying to figure out what to write on my big chalkboard in my kitchen - you just inspired me! Gorgeous. Visiting from TLC today! :)

Hi, Pat! Love the idea of placing the chalkboard over the existing artwork for the holidays. Great idea! And love what you wrote as well!
