A new mantle for the new year 2012

I'll admit it was nice to finally put up the tree and box away all of the creepy santas and annoying caroler trinkets. I love playing with the mantle. I probably think of a new idea for it every month but I resist the urge to change it that often as much as I can.

i'm almost over the feather wreathe but i can't figure out what else to replace it with right now

blue ball (hehehe) mason jars found at Savers one extemely lucky night, they had never been used either, they weren't cheap either but I could not walk away from them, the gorgeous postcard was made by my talented friend Anika 

my Merry always did want to be a unicorn painting by my other talented friend Erin next to our framed day after wedding photo

 vintage russian nesting dolls

 pictures taken by me, the one on the left is from a small corner on an alteration shop's sign which is owned by the sweetest guy named abraham
 picture of Tyrone taken at a show by our friend uglysheep

another lovely painting from Erin if you look closely you can almost make me out, i couldn't get it with out getting a reflection of myself
