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 lucky...so 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?
They also screamed,
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,
Otherwise, enjoy your nice weather!
