The start to my 2012 mantle

I like to consider myself extremely frugal. When I put up all of the Christmas *stuff* from the mantle, I decided to do something new. I went rummaging from the rest of the house. The flower painting is one of my favorites. I bought it from the New Beginnings
Shelter. They are sort of like Goodwill. I was shocked at the $2.95 price tag. It's beautiful!
The Egyptian looking water jar was free. My church was cleaning out & throwing it away.
This vintage candy jar I found on ebay for $3.00 plus shipping. For now, it has wine corks in it. The small red jars I also bought on ebay thinking they were *wine glasses* turns out the joke was on me when I received them. They are avon - and way too small
for wine glasses, but I love them anyway!
Hubbies' guitars make great decoration pieces.
A few Christmas decorations from outdoors still need to be put up. This pineapple candle holder is also a Goodwill find & one of my favs! Happy 2012 all, let's make it a good one!
