Golden Mantel

I am decorating...woo hoo!  I am not going to decorate as much as last year.
The  fireplace mantel is done, along with the family and dining rooms.

Here's my husband's stocking.....Elf toe....LOL

And mine...of course, a high heel

We have lots to do.  Christmas is creeping  up on us.
Stay tuned for the kitchen reveal.
Happy holidays my friends.....XO
Stay nice and warm.
