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.
