Our Winter Mantel

Happy Tuesday, friends!

Well, according to our forecast, we might ... just might ... be getting our first real snowfall this weekend!  So, I think it's only fitting that I share our Winter mantel.  

After all, it's dedicated to snow!

There's something about snow in the forecast that gets me excited! 

I guess it's the anticipation of it ... the frenzy at the grocery store ... putting a warm meal on your menu ... and waiting for the snowflakes to start falling!

Yes, the uncomfortable snow pants and boots are ready to go ...

and our sleds, discs and inter tubes are ready to fly down snow-covered neighborhood hills!

Let's not forget a good ol' snowball fight and building a snowman.  And, after we're all just about frostbitten, we'll come back inside and plop ourselves right here by the fire for awhile ... only to go back outside and do it all over again!

**Fingers crossed** that snow is on the way! 

As always, thanks so much for stopping by,

You can have some of ours. We would love some sunshine and warm weather here in Utah. Beautiful Mantel. It is always hard to take down the Christmas stuff then try and figure out what to put up for the winter months. Love yours. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Becca! I love the simplicity of your winter décor (at least its what I consider simple!lol)You always come up with such beautiful décor and it is always different from the last. My mantel looks so boring right now that you've inspired me yet again to go fix it. The snow, however, I can do without but I guess we are in it's path too up here in WV. I anticipate the grocery lines so I went to Walmart this morning to find many people and one register open!lol Stay warm and cozy - Jeannette

I love the anticipation of snow, especially when we lived on the East Coast. It was like a surprise holiday.

Now we have snow all the time in the mountains but it's still magical to see the world outside covered in fresh white. It's like heaven gave the earth a big kiss!

(except the shoveling our driveway is for the birds)

Your mantel looks crisp and fresh - perfect for a snow day! I will wish for snow to cover your part of the world too!

Gorgeous winter mantel, Becca. Im dreaming of snow too, but of course we won't be getting any. I'm loving the winter weather we're having though on the east coast of Florida. I can finally put away my summer attire and bring out my winter clothes I've been dying to wear! 40* this morning! I'm sipping some hot chocolate while I'm writing this comment! Stay warm & cozy!
