Winter Mantle and Hearth 2018

Good morning! I hope you are all warm and cozy. It has been COLD here in Pa.  We had one day in the 50's and we managed to get the outside decorations put away that day, thank goodness as it is back to the teens and 20's now. I am SLOWLY getting Christmas away. I got the living room done so I did a winter mantle and hearth. I didn't do a lot of winter decor as I have in past years. I usually use all of my snowy owls and make a winter arrangement but this year wanted something simpler.

 I love, love these 2 bamboo pieces. I got them at the place where I worked several years ago. I added the greenery when I got them. They haven't been on the mantle for awhile so I brought them back.

 2 blue and white pots with boxwood balls are next to them.
 On the hearth I used my white basket with a snowflake place mat that fits perfectly and surrounded that with
 this beautiful candle holder. I filled the candle holder because the carved wooden lanterns are on the hearth so didn't need a candle here.
 and a snowy owl on a silver pillar holder. I also placed a pinecone garland around the basket and added some pinecones in that.

 It is warm and cozy here at night. I noticed the other day that it was 5:20 and still light outside so the days ARE getting longer! THAT makes me happy!






 I added some snowy picks to the cypress greens just for a simple touch of winter.





 Thanks so much for your visit! I am still taking down Christmas and should be done soon! I need Joe to help with a couple of things so that is my hold up. he has been busy:)

Frosty's Top Hat

I haven't taken my Christmas down yet. Not because I didn't want to but my Joe wants me to leave it for awhile. So...it is still up:) I am going to slowly replace some Christmas with some winter decor and hopefully that will make him happy:) I did set a new table though. It is COLD, (as it is everywhere right now) and we have snow on the ground and yesterday got freezing rain. So, a "frosty" table seems appropriate. So we begin with Frosty's top hat!
 Which sits on a Frosty cake plate.

I gathered 2 napkins in a ring of jingle bells, berries and pine and added a snowflake.
 I also used my snowman flatware
 mixed in with my black handled flatware. I love the checked tablecloth as a background for this table.
 These little top hats are ornaments that I found at Cracker Barrel years ago.
 Love how they are decorated.
 I added a snowman runner
 and surrounded the snowy candle holders with a white and a red berry ring



 Here we are at night.
 These salad plates are some of my favorites.
 The stack is my plaid chargers, an embellished white dinner plate and the snowman salad plates.





 These snow ball votives light up the cake plate.








 I wasn't sure if I had showed you this snowman that I got this year from CTS. I love him!



Thanks for stopping by.
