A Winter Mantel

I am not a decorator by any means.  This is our first home with a fire place, and we are enjoying it.  Andrew is an excellent fire builder.  We have a fire once a day at least.

So we have joined in with other bloggers’ fun and are trying our hand at mantel decor.

Here you can see our first attempt from this post on Fall Mantel decor

Here is our winter/Christmas mantel.

Our fireplace itself is not as pretty, but thanks to my brother and his family, we have this super intense fireplace gate, and we are very safe with a one-and-a-half year old.

We are loving changing our artwork around with the seasons, highlighting different pieces.  This one is a Lucy Loomis.  It reminds me of growing up in Vermont.

Looking forward to all that this season holds.

  1. Oh my…just happened by due to the mantle party…and something just drew me to the little picture. I love this mantle. It’s just simple and perfect. I love berries and use a lot of them in my holiday decorating. Sometimes simple says so much more than overdone. Love it. That’s all. 🙂
