Christmas mantel

Here's my easy decorating Christmas mantel.  I mostly used what I already had, the only new things are the green star ($5 from Big Lots) and the garland and green berries (Dollar tree).

We have a tree and some more Christmas decorating around here too, but I haven't taken pictures yet of the tree all decorated yet.
We went to a Christmas tree farm and cut our own tree for the first time:

San Antonio 1/2 marathon

We were in San Antonio again last weekend, this time Chris ran the 1/2 marathon instead of the full like last year.  The weather was cooler and running 13.1 miles was a lot more enjoyable for him than 26.2.

We even got to do some antique shopping here:

Mirror mirror on the wall


I found this mirror a few weeks ago at an antique store, I don't think it is any kind of "antique" but I liked the look of it, and it was only $10.  The outer frame is plastic but it looks like metal from a distance.

I like the way it looks in here, now our "formal dining room", with some other white and cream things.

I got this little lamp (below) for $2.99 from Goodwill and the burlap shade from Target.

I'm looking forward to decorating this room for Christmas!  I did not decorate much for fall, only some white pumpkins here and there and some Halloween decor on my sewing table.
