winter mantel

We're off to a fresh start of 2016!

The new year finally brought cold temperatures to TN.
(It was 75 degrees on Christmas day- not very Christmasy!!)
So now that it feels wintery, even if we have no snow, I decorated my mantel for Winter!

Here is my winter mantel.

It all started when I couldn't bear to put away my DIY snowglobes.
These were in my Christmas decor in the living room.

Those little golden deer are just precious.

I also couldn't part with this glittery garland from my Christmas mantel.
So I decided to keep it for my winter mantel.
I just love it!!

I added the famous wooden skis from Target.

I kept the black and white stripe art and tobacco stick star, also from my Christmas mantel.
I added some little, battery operated tea lights on the side.

On the other side is a fuzzy snowflake, hanging from a chalkboard.

Do you decorate your house for winter?
