Santa's Tree Farm Chalkboard Mantel



 Good morning! The Christmasing of the house continues!
Yesterday I drew the new chalkboard for the mantel in the family room .. and it is all about Santa's Tree Farm! Santa is welcoming you to come cut your own tree!~
 There are a couple reindeer out there  helping.. of course the old fashioned truck with a tree in the back..and I have to admit I was a little lazy and left the barn and the truck from the fall chalkboard :)
 To add to the chalkboard there are 3 trucks with trees in the back .. the one in the middle was my father in laws.. the 2 on the ends my neighbor ( Thank you Cassie)gave me for the grandsons.. I used Styrofoam to add height under the trucks and the chalkboard ..lights are wrapped all around the trucks and the chalkboard..
 all the stockings were stitched by me .. still working on Hunters new one :)
 see the chicken in the back of this truck ? and there is a cow I found at Goodwill last week in the dump truck..The mantel is layered with a white flocked garland, a light green frosted garland.. buffalo check ribbon woven in .. cotton branches and white lights.. I made floral toppers for the 2 lanterns on the ends..Ronnie definitely approves!
If you would  like to see what I am up to everyday join me on Instagram and my Facebook page ! I do post on both almost everyday ..Links to my Facebook page , Instagram and Pinterest are in the sidebar .. Hope to see you there ! :)

I have a lot of Christmas to put up and usually I start the weekend before Thanksgiving but this year you have inspired me that it is ok to start NOW!! My daughter and I have started and I don't feel nearly as stressed as I do every year! Love all of your lovely decorations! You have also helped me to not feel so guilty about all the Christmas décor that I have! Decorating each year makes my heart sing! Thanks for your inspiration!
