Winter/Valentine Mantel

I redecorated my mantel this week while we were snowed in.  I really like how it turned out.  See what you think. To me it feels so light and airy.  (Not that we need airy in this weather). 

 My former boss knew I collected angels and bought me all of these for different occasions.  These are Lenox, and some of my favorites.
 This plaque is glass or ceramic (not sure),  and reads "Angels Gather Here".  I've had it for 8 or 9 years.  It has hung on the wall, rested on easels, stood in the china cabinet, on the bookcase, and ALL kinds of places, so now it is leaning on the mantel.

I've had the red roses garland for several years.  It was on top of one of the kitchen cabinets in a vignette.  I was taking everything down and cleaning it last week and decided to use this on the mantle. 
The glasses are clear depression glass.

  Hope you like this as much as I do.
