Heirloom Christmas Mantle

My Christmas decoration is almost finished, but as a tardition I started by decorating my mantle, even before my tree is up...oh well, this is me :)

I love to change it from year to year, but for some years now, reardless of the stye I use, I try to incorporate a bit of history, so I use my grandmothers beautiful english china bowl.  passed to my mom and she passed it to me. For those who follow my blog,  you  know how much I love all things old and vintage. 
Lots of my inspiration to use vintage pieces  come from Chairish and their absolutely beautiful and unique pieces. Worth checking them out, their "vinatge furniture" is pure eye candy!

I love the colour and the clean lines.
All i do is fill it with shiny ornaments.

 And because I live so far away from my family, this touch certainly brings me closer to them this special time of the year, love it!
Merry Christmas to one and all!
