SIMPLICITY (or My Boring Christmas Mantel)

I don't have a real
honest-to-goodness mantel,
 but what I do have is this
 fake fireplace heater thing. 

It is usually in the tv room,
but we moved it
so we could put up our tree.


I put my fake old-fashioned record player on top. 
I put it here because it is the best location in the house to hear the Christmas music that I listen to from the day after Thanksgiving until midnight on Christmas night.
On top of the record player, I plunk my
red toy pick-up truck.

I add a couple of painted wood Christmas trees.
And call it a day.

It is not much of a mantel. 
In fact, she will be the plain Jane at the party.
But I've missed enough parties because I didn't have the right outfit. 
 This is one party I'm not gonna miss,
 so I'm heading over to
 The Lettered Cottage
 for the Christmas mantel decorating party. 
Come on over,
Come as you are!
