Formal Living Room Christmas Mantel 2011

Our formal living room mantel is a little more dressed up
than the family room mantel that I shared yesterday.


Here are a few close up shots of the mantel.








Another Russian Santa...one of my favorites.


 And our Russian Nativity. 
A little different than the other ones we have...we loved the tree.

Would love to know what you think!

Everything is so beautiful. I know I'm not supposed to be, but I'm jealous. And, seriously, how do you keep your house so clean with 4 kids!?!?!?

I have the SAME Russian nativity! Bought it on Old Arbat (because I just couldn't find one I liked in Ismailovski Park). Paid out the nose for it, but absolutely LOVE it! It was my birthday present! ;o) Love your Russian Santa, too. May have to try to find one online!
