Good Wednesday, friends! I hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s and President’s Day weekend! We’re on winter break this week… well, my high school senior is on winter break. 🙂 It’s business as usual for the rest of us! We’re weathering the winter chill so I thought I’d share my winter mantel with you today.
After I took down my Christmas mantel, I was craving something very simple and natural. And that’s exactly where my mantel ended up…
You’ll notice I kept the tin bulb cups from my Christmas mantel… I just love their texture! And would you believe that is the SAME greenery from two months ago. I added water for about a month, but have just left them alone and they’ve dried without losing their gorgeous green.
You might also notice I added a family photo… I don’t usually display family pics on the mantel, but the kids gave me that sweet frame for Christmas and I love the wood tone, not to mention the sweet message. 🙂
I originally had a few more pine cones scattered along, but gradually removed all but one and I love the simplicity now. It will stay this way until I’m craving a touch of spring, which is probably a few weeks away, but who knows??
