I have been decorating the house and wrapping presents the past two days. I have taken the mantle decorations down three times and am still not satisfied with the results. Plan to work on it again in the morning. Not quite sure what the problem is, but I am pouring over magazines feverishly to get new ideas. I have bought some new mercury candlesticks and a silver ball tree to use. I also have a lighted garland across the mantle. There is a mantle clock in the middle and I think that is what is throwing me off. I plan to completely remove everything and start over in the morning. I will post some pictures of the results. Wish me luck!!
