Winter Decor

I thought I'd share with you some of the winter decor I've put out around our home since taking down the Christmas decorations.


Long silver branches in a glass vase with faux snow sit on one side of the sofa table.

I used my three large glass hurricanes with silver snowflakes, faux snow and frosted pine cones on the other end of the sofa table.
 




Apothecary jars are filled with faux snow, pine cones and faux icicles. Excuse the dated Hunter Green countertops.  The kitchen is on the list of reno's!

  

  
The following are the different shelves of an etagere we have in our living room.  I've tried to create an "icy" theme on each shelf.
You will soon notice that most of my decor is placed atop my Battenburg and/or cutwork runners and tablecloths.  I think they have a "snowy" look to them.
  

  

  

  

Centerpiece created for kitchen table -  Pine cones, faux snow, faux icicles and a candle in a glass bowl surrounded by an icy wreath.
  

Fireplace mantel takes on a snowy/icy look.  I put white LED lights under the branches but they look blue in the pictures.
  

All of the pine cones you see in the pics are real ones which were given a spray of faux snow (from a can).
  

Yes, that's my tripod you see reflected in the mirror! Oops!
 

I am going to link up to Barb's Tabletop Tuesdays at Grits & Glamor for the first time.  Thanks Barb for hosting this exciting new meme!

You and I could be friends! I love to decorate in the winter w/white feather boas, as in a wreath and lights on the mantel.
