My Christmas Mantel and Vignettes

Welcome everyone.  It's time to show some table tops and a mantel.  I know there were parties to show off my mantel and vignettes...but I just couldn't get my DUCKS lined up in time.  Now with the holiday season I have been working the late evening hours at Tuesday Morning.  I love to work from 4 to 9 pm because I can PLAY all day...This year I bought a lighted wreath at Walmart. I really like the lights next to the mirror.  The reflection of the little lights at Christmas is so wonderful and the small nativity I found on clearance.

This year I have two nativity sets on the mantel.  Last year I had the angels on the mantel Here.  The swag is lit and the stockings are hung for Santa to fill. With the Christmas Tree lights and the lights on the mantel the living room is very Cozy in the evening.

The Old Homco Bisque vintage 9pc Christmas set I bought is the early 70's Here.   My children loved to set it up at Christmas time.  I was wondering the other day is there a proper place to put Mary and Joesph?  

Last year I had this nativity on our Christmas dinner table as the centerpiece Here.  I bought the 11 piece nativity at an Estate Sale for $5.00. 

We all love ribbon candy!

I was reading a decorating book awhile ago and saw a photo of Christmas decorations in a box on a table.  The Copy Cat that I am ~This is my interpretation of the 'Christmas Box'.
