I love the elegant look of cut-glass and crystal pieces during the holiday season. They almost create an enchanting, icy aura throughout the space. My collection has been slowly growing with collectible pieces I find at thrift shops. I'd have to say this year is by far the best the mantel, table and dining room has ever looked. All the crystal pieces create a spectacular display of simplicity and refinement. The miniature lights from the tree add a twinkling brilliance across the pieces as well.
Crystal glass is combined with fresh cuts of White Pine and Leyland Cypress. Silver ornaments combined with grapevine spheres are strategically placed throughout the greens. Clear glass gems, also used to make some custom, homemade ornaments, are tastefully scattered among the mantel as well.

What unique elements have you placed upon your mantel this year?
