Merry Mantels

By Kate Riley November 23, 2015

Greetings friends! Yesterday was an epic day, we spent it at the Australia Zoo and I got to do this! We only have four more days left in Australia before we’re headed home on Saturday, our next stop is Sydney and I’m crazy excited to see that city. We’re celebrating Thanksgiving there too – there are restaurants that host it for us Americans down under so we will have our turkey and pumpkin pie. :)

How about a little mantel inspiration to get you in the mood for Christmas? Yes yes I know it’s Thanksgiving this week, but I’ve never been one to wait to decorate and I’m looking forward to adding a few more holiday touches to our home when I get back to California. I spied some lovely holiday décor in catalogs and online from some favorite retailers and magazines this season, thought I’d share.
