Bella's Mantle ~~ featuring the candle stick Christmas Trees

How much do you guys love FREE decorating? How much???
There are not many things I love more than making new things from things I already have. 
Not spending any money is awesome, even if you have it to spend, I don't believe in spending just because. 
In the spirit, of ALWAYS making do, I created this Christmas mantle, of course with all things I already own. I bought some red candle sticks from goodwill, last year, and they have sadly been stuffed into a corner, and been forgotten about. I've had these little Christmas tree for years, and hardly ever put them out. I got them, with the pearls, and pipe cleaner, and that's how they've stayed since, UNTIL now. 

Check out my NEW Chritmas Mantle, and I didn't spend a dime.

In my spare time I enjoy cooking, and baking. In fact my mother and I have been making cakes for over 30 years. I also love gardening, traveling, and all things crafty. I struggle daily to keep my like organized, along with my never ending battle to keep the house clean. I adore my three kids MOST of the time, and can usually be found doing the mom thing from morning till night. I try to catch a few mommy moments, but those are hard to find in this wonderful life of mine. I am blessed and happy, and am thrilled you stopped by today :)
