After getting all the Christmas away I did the mantle for the winter. I really enjoy doing this. I had never done "winter décor" til I moved here. Those who follow me, can you believe it has been 4 years already!!?? Hope you like the mantle and hearth! Isn't this little guy cute!? I sat him on a silver candlestick.
His friend sits up higher on a glass candlestick. Candlesticks are not just for candles my friends!!! The LED candles are on timers and have a remote too!
I placed a snowy pine tree on a candle holder too along with a tiny owl.
Another pinecone owl sits on an overturned silver bowl. Icy branches and pinecones add more texture to the area.
This snowy mini wreath surrounds another owl.
At night the candles cast a soft glow.
I had a pine tree on the right side then remembered I had 2 of these snowy white trees!
So the other went on the hearth.
Pine cones fill some spaces too.
The trees have burlap on the bases.
The one on the hearth has 2 tiny owls perched among the branches.
I have some snowflake placemats and they fit perfectly into my white basket/tray!
The 2 carved wooden lanterns are from India. They usually sit on the floor beside the fireplace. I LOVE them ON the fireplace. I think they have found a new home!
I placed a green wreath around the base of one,
and some greens around the other one.
Not sure why the light of the lantern isn't showing well.
I am really enjoying this look for winter! It is very warm and cozy looking to me.
I thought I might keep the snowmen in the breakfast room, but decided to get EVERYTHING put away and have a clean slate. So I got busy and brought out some pottery, greens and baskets for the breakfast room. The baskets stay on the wall all the time.
The black lantern is on a timer so comes on every evening. I added the black iron sphere, the garland and the demijohn.
I found this cement piece last week, at a favorite store. I have been searching for one and was thrilled to get this. Simply added a wicker ball. The bottle is made from recycled glass.
My little wire cloche stays in this spot all the time. I added some green (faux) apples.
The lamp is also on a timer. The lamp is wood and I love the burlap shade.
The tin bucket was filled with some greens.
On the bottom shelf a wicker tray adds even more texture.
My little bicycle planter is one the very bottom. I am liking this clean, look for the winter.
The birds have been all around outside. I love seeing them, just not cleaning up after them:)
Thanks again for your visit. I will be sharing my winter mantle next so stay tunes!
Good Morning! I hope you are thawing out wherever you are from this deep freeze so many of us are in.. It is UP to 23 right now, we have ben stuck in the 20's for days now. But it is supposed to be 60 by Thurs. so here's hoping!
I set a table in the dining room for Winter. I keep a table set as it is the first room you see as you enter our home. Hope you like it! I kept the basic dishes but added these wintery branch salad plates I found at Home Goods.
I kept the leopard votives on the table for just a touch of leopard that I love. Still in love with my beaded place mats!
The plates are simple but do say Winter to me.
I found the dimensional snowflake napkin rings at Hobby Lobby before Christmas.
A snowflake in the wine glasses and at the base of the candle holders.
Joe gave me this gorgeous vase for Christmas so I made a wintery arrangement for the centerpiece. It is filled with snowy branches and pinecones.
I LOVE this vase!
The glow of the candles is so pretty and cozy at night.
I got this pretty runner years ago. The black and gold is perfect with my dishes.
A snowball candle and a gold candle rest in the glass holders.
And mercury glass votives sit on the ends of the runner.
Thanks for stopping. My computer gave me issues last night and wouldn't upload my pictures so that is why I am late. Have a beautiful day. I am finally just about finished putting my Christmas decorations away. Joe and I got the tree undecorated and back downstairs yesterday.
