Winter Mantle



So here is my WiNtEr MaNtLe!!

I went with mainly WHITE and accented with bare twigs and wreaths....


...used some gray material as well!!

Lurve this white plate, and use it OFTEN!!  I bought this little frame at a resale shop because it had a beautiful letter "A" in it!!  I like that letter for some random reason!  :)  I reuse it each season with fun festive paper!!

I decided something was missing from my mantlescape....and remembered these CA-UTE little wreaths in my garage...thank you Goodwill!!  Trying to keep with the neutral colors, I chose the gray material to hang them from the white open frames. 



 I "stole" these twigs from my parents back yard...I don't think they minded much!!  ;)

And my precious family!!!  Ain't they sweet?!
I hope you've enjoyed this little tour of my mantle!!  And I hope that all of ya'll that get snow this winter, have fun...I'll be a little jealous when we don't get any this season!!

  1. Great job. I love the wreath tied in the open frame. I always struggle with decorating the mantel in non holiday decor.
