To the untrained eye (wink, wink) this mantle may appear to be a Christmas mantle... but...
IT IS NOT... oh, no...no...no!
This is my THANKSGIVING mantle. Both Thanksgiving and Christmas have shared custody of pinecones!
This mantle... this THANKSGIVING mantle... with just a few tweaks and tiny changes of green, will easily transform into my Christmas mantle this weekend...
But for now... it is all about Thanksgiving...
The pumpkins that nested on my mantle all fall were beginning to get a little soft around the edges... so they got tossed and replaced with mercury glass, silver and pinecones... THANKSGIVING mercury glass, silver and pinecones!
Some of the pinecones are really candles from Pottery Barn... but they won't be lit until Christmas Eve... when the mantle will be decked in Christmas pinecones!
Pinecones and silver are a pair made for eachother... rustic and luxe!
Votives in mercury glass candle holders and white lanterns make puddles of soft golden light on the mantle.
Next week I'll show you my Christmas mantle!
