Hi friends, well the Holiday season is upon us and it’s about that time to start decorating for the Holidays!  Every year I love adding a few new items to my current collection of Christmas decor.  And this year I’m super excited because we’ve since given our dark red brick fireplace a Diy makeover with paint.

Here’s the Before pic…

We are loving this new cleaner look, so much so that I wanted the decor on our mantle to be lighter and brighter this year.  So I visited Old Time Pottery in search of a few fresh finds to give our mantle a new look!

I found two simple items…sparkly gold branches vase filler and faux poinsettias.  And all for less than $40, I love that!

Here’s the sparkly/gold vase filler below.  I am loving gold in home decor these days and this metallic hue is perfect for easily adding glamorous style to any Holiday space!


I even found this cool red plate at OTP last year for less than $10.  I love using this vibrant red throughout my home during the Holidays!


And one final look at our new fireplace mantle all decked out for Christmas!



So two simple purchases from Old Time Pottery gave our fireplace mantle a fresh new festive look!  And for less than $40. That my friends is what I love about Old Time Pottery.  With OTP you can easily create a chic Holiday home that you, your friends and family will love!
