Vintage White Tree, White "Mantel", & New Snowman

Today I thought I would share some things that are white in my decor for Christmas.  Here is my little vintage white tree with vintage ornaments & glass garland...
This is my faux mantle, which used to be a shelf, that I had my hubby put up above our sofa in the living room.  He made it several years ago for me & it used to be burgundy.  Several coats of paint later, it is white and a fun mantle.  
The window is another project I did to add something more substantial to my large wall & anchor the shelf/mantle.  It is scrapbooking paper behind the windows!!  I saw a makeover show on HGTV & the hostess did a collage of black framed pieces that looked like fabric & this popped into my head to do instead, since I had the window.  Some of my bottle brush trees are on the mantle, along with some mercury glass candle holders.  The balls below the shelf are mercury glass also that I got for $1.19 each at Craft Warehouse.

Last I will share a white snowman that I got at a craft show last weekend.  It was t the Albany fairgrounds with lots of booths of all different kinds.  I got a couple of items, one being this snowman...
So now I will join White Wednesday this week for my 1st time!
