Silver and gold

It took me three days but I am finally finished with the Christmas decorating indoors and out . I just need to concentrate on my gift list now. 
We are loving our champagne gold vegas tree. I am keeping things very simple, only using white, silver and gold on the tree, it is very calm and pretty. We have not a single bit of green inside and I'm loving it. Change is fun. I didn't even buy a single ornament, I had all the ones I used and my Mom gave me a box of white frosty balls, nice!

 This is my very first real mantel to decorate for the holidays. That can be a daunting task.I started with two gold and silver garlands that I found at Homesense , I attached them with white strings to the mantel with 3M removable hooks. I added the little white Christmas trees and bought a couple of mercury glass accessories like the two candle sticks and a large owl and a simple little bowl. A few silver mesh bows and lots of silver and white balls strung from more white strings I just wrapped around the garland.

 This adorable owl was only $12.99 at Winners, such a sweet touch.
The gorgeous candle sticks were $14.99 also from Winners. The nice thing about the mercury glass is that it's not " Christmas" so I can use them all year round if I like.
 I bought these sweater stockings way before we even had kids, back in the 90's... I know I'm ancient! I thought they would be cute on the stairs , why not , right. I have a fourth one somewhere but can't find it !
 I had two tinsel wreaths from long ago so I added them to the hall doors. I hung them from string, duh like you can't see it , and 3M hooks.
