Frosty's new digs.

The votes have been tallied and
the winner of the Mirror Mirror contest is
  number 7.

For those of you who don't remember 
which mirror that was, good recall!
There was no number 7.    :o)

I was more confused than ever,
after reading your comments so clever,
when what to my wandering eyes did appear,
but a mirror forgotten which I love so dear!

I'm brushing up on my 5th grade poetry lessons.  hehe
Mrs. Bispala would be so proud!

Here it is.

I bought this old church window way back in '99
and replaced the lovely amber textured plastic panes
 with mirrors.  It's been hanging above a dresser in the
 master bedroom collecting dust, so I thought I'd attack it with a
Swiffer and try it out on the mantel.

Frosty is shivering with delight in his new location!

A slight tilt of his head and he can view our
sparkly textured ceiling that looks like snow to him, too.
High five, Frosty!

My Martha Stewart wreath is front and center, 
and I filled up our shallow mantel with red pillar candles on mismatched candlesticks.

The Happy Holidays banner is accented with a cute little red sweater
crocheted for me last year by the talented Tracy of Crow's Feet Chic.
It's wearing my Baba's Christmas pin.

I've covered my wingback chair with a vintage
 corduroy quilt in bright happy colors.

My mother doesn't always know what kind of old junk
I'm scavenging for, but when she bought these red wood clogs
for a few dollars at a rummage sale, she nailed it!

A poinsettia on the hearth and child's rocking chair ready for bedtime stories
with a vintage copy of "Night Before Christmas" and the mantel is complete.

As for the rest of the house.....
be careful where you step.  There's Christmas stuff

I've finished decorating the living room and Mother Nature is
taking care of the outdoor decorating with 6 inches of new snow and more on the way!

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!!!

  24. Your whole fireplace vignette is wonderful. My favorite is the sweater with your Baba's pin.

  25. Vickie,
    great pick, that window looks wonderful up there with the candles and banner! My favorite things are the little sweater and the shoes. Don't know why I like the shoes, but a few years ago someone brought a pair into my store and I kept looking at them till I finally had to bring them home, they too are decorated in red. Frosty should be quite happy surrounded by all your Christmas finery!

  26. I think you definitely made the right choice. I love this little church window with the mirrors. I'm sure Frosty loves his new view too. When you finish your holiday decorating, you are welcome to come visit. I haven't started a single thing. Shame on me.

  27. I love the whole cozy scene. The window frame looks great. My favorite thing is that cute little red sweater with your Babas Christmas pin. I could just sit in the chair and enjoy the season.

  28. That mirror is perfect! Love all the bright touches of red and that patchwork quilt is gorgeous. Another great touch I love - the little red sweater on your banner. Zing! :-)

  29. It all looks so festive! Love the little snowman, the red sweater, and the vintage quilt. We woke up to about 6" also. Been snowing all day and it is absolutely gorgeous! Best way to get in the Christmas spirit, right?

  30. Oh my gosh!! That tiny red sweater is adorable!!! Love it!

  31. Love your mantel. Actually you could switch out the mirrors because they all worked. A fun Christmas fireplace and mantel!

  32. I love arched windows-great mirror.

  33. Awww, isn't that the cutest little red sweater ever! It's the perfect spot of warmth for that banner! And man that's a gorgeous rocking chair. I thought of you the other day when I saw a little child's piano in the pics from an estate sale. Didn't make it to the sale, but your little child instruments have been permanently engraved in my brain.

  34. Love this mirror! Such a cute mantel!
