~ Winter Mantel ~



For me, this time of the year always moves at a snails pace...It is a transition period when everything looks dull and bland but you begin to hear the little birds chirping outside... I hear little wrens in the woods and the blue jay family has returned to eat up my cat food on the deck...

or, I should say, "yard kitty's" food...the sweet outside cat that came with our house... We have adopted her into our family and love her dearly...I worry about her constantly, but that's another blog...soon!

The mantel is still decked out for winter and I finally have the picture that I have been waiting patiently to purchase for years...It is now my winter mantel decoration and fills in for Mr. Washington who usually holds that very spot.

Take Care,

Tina

I love the simplicity of your mantel display. Unfortunately in our neck of the woods winter is just settling in and there aren't any birds chirping! ~Ann

Your birds must have come down here to NC for vacation. :0)

We are having a milder winter here too...I like that!

The simplicity of your mantel holds the potential for what is to come. It doesn't scream 'Christmas',it says 'Winter', a time of rest and renewal.

What a beautiful change!

Lovely display ... It has a simplistic traditional feel to it. We just dismantled our Christmas decorations. For us Christmas begins Christmas Eve, and ends when He is baptized. We did start decorating right after T.G., just could not and did not want to take it down before the 9th of January.

Warm Blessings,
