The mantle

I fretted over the decor of the mantle this year.  I wanted to make use of things I already had - I wasn't about to go out buying all new stuff.  My goal is to get rid of stuff we have too much of, not add to! 
Red berry sprays, glass jars made from Dollar General vases and candle holders, pine cones, 
gold wire tree topper, evergreen garland - all stuff I already had
 Shabby chic paper mache angel I've had forever with new mirror I hung last month
I added  ribbon ($3) and new curlique thingies ($1.20) to the garland and I bought a small package of gold pine cones ($1.50) and a  "Merry Christmas sign" ($1).  I already had the candles.  So I guess I spent about $6 something...and my daughter said  "it looks good mom, stop fussing over it".
So...I did!
