lookit! my mantel! it is quite pretty in person. and the buckets are a viable alternative to the stocking. but i am going to get some tags and make some numbers or something like this.

peace on earth fuckers:

i also went on a hunt for some fake snow so that i could fill the fireplace with it and create a gay village like martha did under her fake tree. you know the one with the little deer and bottle brush trees? anyway, i went to michael's and pottery barn. no snow. so right now there is a white hydrangea plant in there. it works. but i am still looking for the snow.
