Mantel Friday


 
 Although I've posted these pics in a previous post with my winter decor, I really wanted to link up to Beth's great meme of Mantel Fridays at her blog Stories from A to Z  I apologize to those of you who might have already seen these.


This is how I decorated the mantel for winter after I took down the Christmas decor.




 

I laid icy branches over white LED mini-lights, added snowflakes and two pillar candle holders on each side.  I am always a fan of using Battenburg lace as part of my winter decorations.  It has a "snowy" look to me. (I'm not sure why the lights look blue in the pic but IRL they are a very white colour)
  





Real pine cones were sprayed with faux-snow from a can.
