This year I decided to change things up a bit and go for a simple mantle. I love the bottle brush trees I bought on sale from Target last year. The mercury glass candelabras are from Home Decorators. They are large and really nice, and the best part was they were on clearance. The Dept. 56 Snowbabies were all purchased from the thrifts for a few dollars each. Here's a few pics of my tree. First without bubble lights and then with. It looks so different with the bubble lights on! This year I decided to add tinsel that I bought from the Goodwill. I do like the look of it, if only my two dogs would leave it alone! One of my favorite tree ornaments is the cute kneehugger elf. I only have one, and I would love to have more, but this is the only one I've ever found while junking. I'm too thrifty to pay the prices on Ebay or in the antique shops. Another of my favorite types of ornaments are the indented mercury glass ornaments. I have several of those, bought at yard sales and estate sales for pennies.
