I took close up shots of the mantel because of the mirror. I like mirrors over a fireplace, but I don't care for what they reflect. In my case, you would see an old dusty and country ceiling fan that needs to be taken down. So trust me these close ups are better! Oh and one more thing, I know that I'm missing candles. When I find some, I'll take more pictures so you can see how the mantel (mantle) look then.
Here are a few updated pictures of my living room. I added some peacock blue ornaments with the turquoise (very pretty)
( My branch display had to be moved because it was tempting my 1 year old!)
(see how he is running into the room? that's why I moved the branches!)
(And this is Nick because he take all the presents!)
Now I have to keep these ornaments forever! I purchased those ornaments before my kids were born. I was working at Macy's and they were on clearance. I thought they were cutest ornaments! Now they represent my three boys....thanks to my 5 year old!
