Where the idea came from...

 Happy Monday friends!
 I'm joining Debbie's Holiday Knockoff Decor Party today. I'm sharing where I got the inspiration to do this years Christmas mantel.
Here's the image I found over at BHG, I loved this look!
In mine I used a real wreath and I wanted to add a few pops of red.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a super week!

Well, well, well. How sneaky of you. LOL! I didn't know you copied that idea! I love it. I copy things ALL the time. Why else do we look at all this inspiration, right? I love yours with the red color for your living room.

Great inspirational photo, Martina! I like how you added some red on your mantel. Love the idea of the wreath inside a picture frame. I'll have to tuck that one away for next year.

Love your wreath hung inside the gorgeous frame - what a unique idea. I hung my peppermint wreath inside a vintage window frame, but I think I like yours much better.

Martina, I can't believe I didn't recognize this connection when I saw your mantel. This inspiration photo is one of my all time favorite mantels and that's probably why I loved yours too. You did a fantastic job.

I'm not just saying this but I do think I like yours better. BHG's is a little to formal for me, yours is so very pretty, a very nice looking mantel. Who knows, now you are the inspiration for someone else!
