I can’t help myself. I love to decorate for the seasons. I find myself wanting mostly white for Winter and the month of January. I think it helps brighten my mood and I don’t focus so much on the dreary weather outside. Luckily I just happen to have a few snowmen, snowflakes and white and silver accessories laying around. Okay, they’re not actually laying around, they’re really in totes marked Winter. I haven’t put them all out yet , but I thought I’d start with showing you my fireplace mantel. Ahhh, so white and cheery.
I bought these snowflake tea light holders for 80% off at Hobby Lobby. Which means I spent a whopping $1.80 for each one. They look kind of silver in the picture but they’re really brown.
I think snowflakes should be white not brown, so I painted them heirloom white. I like them much better and they match the sleigh now.
I’ve had the sleigh for years and love it. All the faux mercury glass was at Hobby Lobby for 80% off also. They were such a deal that I couldn’t pass them up, plus they’re just beautiful.
I’ve had the wreath for years. Chunks of glitter are starting to fall off of it because it’s so old but I love how it looks over the fireplace. Don’t worry, the picture of Christ is still in the living room, I just moved him to a different wall.
Remember, these letter cards I bought at Joann’s and used to spell out Give Thanks? They’re back, spelling Winter now. I love that I can keep reusing them. Just slide the cards between the binding tape and use clothespins to hold them in place.
Ta-Da! That’s the mantel. There’s more Winter decor coming tomorrow.
And stay tuned for an awesome giveaway guaranteed to keep you warm.
