Winter Vignettes

Hello friends!

Winter is in full swing.  
We were lucky this time though, the big storm passed us by.  
What a nice change! 
We always get hit by the big snowstorms.

I'm sharing some winter vignettes from around my house.  
I'll keep the chit chat to a minimum. 
Grab something warm to drink & enjoy!

Winter Mantel 2016

Happy New Year, friends!

We are bracing for "a significant Winter event,"
as they like to say on the news.
I know this best as a BIG SNOW STORM!
We shall see what develops.

Honestly, up until right now,
we really haven't had much in the way of typical
New York winter weather.
I guess we've been far.

Now that all the excess of the holidays has been
stored away until November,
I took the opportunity to get my Winter on
with a very simple mantel.  

It all started with the wreath from Lowe's.
I found it after Christmas and I thought I heard it scream, 

 "Buy Me! I'm not just for Christmas, I'm for Winter, too!"

Obviously, I listened.  I'm glad I did, 
because I love it.

See the white metal houses?
Guess what?
They also screamed,

 "Buy me!" 

Again, I listened.

Lowe's needs to tell its merchandise to quiet down.
Perhaps I should get my hearing checked? 

 I do love how they look lit up at night...kind of magical, actually.
I should have taken a photo for you.

I added some mercury glass votives & pinecones to break
up some of the white, but overall, it was the simple, pared down,
Winter look I was going for.  

Do you decorate for Winter?


If it is Winter-like where you live,
stay warm!
Otherwise, enjoy your nice weather!
