~~~A Winter Mantle~~~

I have never really done "winter decor" after the holidays. I usually just put back the everyday things. However I have been INSPIRED by several bloggers to create somne winter vignettes here and there. So, I showed you the winter vignette on the coffe table here: Now I will share the mantle. It was fun putting it together! I had everything so this cost me nothing! I love this little Hummel piece. I forget what it is called, Riding into something, maybe Christmas? But since he is on a sled I decided it was a wintery piece.
 I had this tree, mounted on a piece of wood and lightly sprayed it with faux snow.
 This pinecone tree is sitting on a little stand so I placed some snowflakes in front of it.
 This is the right side of the mantle.
 On the left is this cute little owl made from pine cones!
 I made this arrangement before I started putting the mantle together. I knew I wanted something with height on each end of the mantle. The vase usually sits on my dresser but I think the color and design are perfect here. I filled it with snowy greens, snowy pinecones, snowy owls and some snowflakes:)
 I LOVE these snowy owls. Shirley, from Housepitality Designs has a whole tree full and I fell in love with them when I sawe hers! The pinecone owl is sitting on a little pedestal and I added a twig ball to bring that color and texture here.
 This snowflake candle was a gift a few years ago, along with the beaded candle ring.
 They are sitting on a little pedestal too, along with some greens and pinecones.
 I don't haver a winter scene piece of artwork for here so that was another reason I chose the vase that I did.

 Aren't they just the cutest?

 Here it is at night with the overhead lights on.
 I decided to add a few antlers too, to make it a little more "woodsy".

Thanks so much for your visit. Hope you are staying warm!!! It is bitterly cold all over, I know, very hard to get just from the car into the grocery store:)

  1. Looks great Pinky! My mom use to collect Hummels.

  2. Love the mantel have such a beautiful collection of Hummels....and you know what is my favorite...those cute owls perched on the gorgeous arrangement that you created....So glad that you were able to find all of the great textures of the mantelscape!....Happy Monday Pinky!!!

  3. Your mantel is wintery and pretty. I love to see your Hummels. Both my grandmothers collected Hummels and I sometimes wish I had not gotten rid of them. They look so cute incorporated into a vingette!

    1. We got alot of our hummels from Joe's parents. He was a pilot and bought them IN Germany for very inexpensive prices!!!!

  4. I love how you styled your mantel! It's very rustic and wintry. Your owls reminded me of Shirley's too. I love the pinecones and antlers you added as well.

  5. That looks nice, Pinky. You have the same cute owls that Shirley has.

    1. Thanks, Kim!!! Shirley was my inspiration for the owls!

  6. I love those snowy owls as well! I too thought Shirley's tree was gorgeous. The pinecone owl is so unique. Love what you have done! I always keep out anything snow themed after Christmas. Just seems right when you live in a place that has a cold and snowy winter. The little Hummel guy is just perfect! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  7. Your mantel looks great Pinky. The snowy owls are the show stopper of course (I just love their (fluffiness) and everything is spot on for a winter theme. Pinecones and antlers are perfect!

  8. Me too, love those fluffy owls. Your mantle looks wonderful!
    Thanks so much for sharing at AMAZE ME MONDAY.
