My Christmas mantel

So here we go!  The Christmas mantle.  I can’t have anything really hanging off the mantel because it would tempt the cats and one cat in particular, Walter. Out of the woods he came, skinny and meowing to beat the band.  At first I thought it was one of our cats but the meowing was coming from outside and all of our cats are strictly indoor felines.  I spotted him and put out some food and he ran over, I grabbed him, put him in our garage and the rest is history.  He’s young and looking for trouble at every turn!  So we have to be careful about decorations this year for sure!

I’m really enjoying decorating for Christmas and will have lots more to show as long as Walter doesn’t get to it first!

  1. I love the decorating you’ve done on your mantel. I have to admit that Walter is about as cute as he can be.

  2. My daughter got very excited when she saw the picture of Walter. She’s a cat girl. He’s so handsome! The mantel is beautiful too. ;)

  3. I love the tea cups and ornaments – the white, cream and gold is perfection!

  4. Love your photos! Cute cat :)

    Loved your post. The little kitty knew somewhere out there was a good home waiting for him.You blessed him.

  6. You’re so talented! I love what you’ve done with your mantel… very artfully done.

  7. Love your mantel, so charming and inspiring! I love your tea cups with ornaments in them and I’m going to see if I have any books that will sit on our narrow mantel.

    Walter is adorable! We adopted two senior doggies recently and one of them is Miss Naughty Pants so I can sure relate. :)

    Happy holidays!

  8. Beautiful pictures !!

  9. I’m loving Mr. Naughty Pants – I have a new kitten, but luckily, she is outside!
