Christmas Mantels 2 - Green Desk Top

Linking with Sisters of the Wild West Sunday Link Party
Welcome to Anne of Marmalade and Catnip
and Janice of Gypsy FarmGirl
and Ashley of A to Being Creations
Learning from hundreds of inventive, artistic, prolific, interesting fellow bloggers has been a highlight of my year. Definitely on my Thankful list. The vintage Santa picture is from Graphics Fairy (very thankful for Graphics Fairy blog).
Today a very small mantel on the top of my small green desk (in the kitchen). Its been fun making little vignettes on this 'new to me' surface (herehere and here) this fall.
Christmas themed, using 'found around the house' pretties. Played, tried things out, had fun. Makes me smile every time I walk past.
This is the 'finished' desktop 'mantel.

Below the 'process' - used a tripod, all pictures taken at night, some with flash, some with 'room' light.

and the final vignette again...


  1. What a pretty display. I cant wait to start on our home decorating for christmas. We will wait until next week though because we need to buy a tree.

  2. I enjoyed the process! I guess we all do the same kind of thing when we're decorating, but it was fun to follow your thought process through this one.

  3. Joy! I am so happy you found me. I'm your newest follower. I can't wait to catch up on your posts!

  4. I love the colors of Santa. I just found you on Sisters of the Wild West link party. I hope you will follow me back over at


Thanks for visiting. I read and appreciate all your comments. Joy
