For the mantel
I'm not decorating for Christmas this year due to the move. I don't want the stress of unpacking a tree and Jonathan's stash of one million ornaments (not kidding, our tree leans because of the number ornaments we have) and then repacking it all up. Even more: I can't even get to the closet where the ornaments are stored. Hello, we're getting prepared to make the biggest move of our lives! So of course I'm already prepared with lots of empty boxes.
But even though I'm not decorating this year doesn't mean I can't day decorate dream for next year. The year I will have a mantel. But I know nothing of decorating, and less of decorating a mantel. But when I saw Pretty Ditty's post on yarn trees, I thought: Well, that's right up my knitted heart alley. Can't you picture it?
