The Winter Mantel

 Happy weekend !
I am sharing our mantel decorated for winter today ..
I was so excited this week to finally find some cotton branches! I actually wanted the artificial cotton but there is no store around here that has it, and shipping at all the places I found it is outrageous ! So I found 2 branches at Hobby Lobby for $4.95 each ( they were half off) .I have only been looking for cotton since October ..I can't even tell you how many times I have been in Hobby Lobby since then !! I left the white garlands , glittery branches , pine cones and white lights from our Christmas mantel. I added alot of snowflakes and the 2 cotton branches.
I put the clock back up ..and used vintage blue mason jars filled with bottle brush trees and a couple lanterns.

 I love how the cotton looks like big lumps of snow. The blue chalkboard is from Hobby Lobby and I just drew a simple snowflake on it. When I saw it I thought it would be perfect for finishing a stitched piece :) I will have to work on that :)

 I still have 2 trees up .. this snowman tree and the ice skate tree in the dining room.

Thanks so much for your visit !  I Hope you have a wonderful day !

If you would like to see what I am up to everyday join me on Instagram and my Facebook page ! I do post on both almost everyday ..Links to my Facebook page , Instagram and Pinterest are in the sidebar .. Hope to see you there ! :)

A Stitchy Winter Vignette

Happy Friday !
This winter vignette is in our family room on a long sofa table..

 Last night I finished stitching this Snow Sampler by Country Cottage Needleworks.. I found the frame last year on clearance $2.00 at Hobby Lobby . It is a regular picture frame and the glass was broken. I got the glass out and backed the back of the frame with a brown gingham check. I used magnets on the gingham and sheet metal on the stitching so I can reuse the frame if I have another design that fits :)
 The silver tree I found at Ross on clearance for $3.00 ..A vintage scale , silver trays , pedestal plate and basket are all thrift store..rummage sale finds.
 Love the little snowy lit cabin ..
 The book page wreath is hanging over the everyday print to make it more festive .. This was a really quick design to stitch up ..
Thanks so much for your visit !  I Hope you have a wonderful day !

 Happy Wednesday !
Come on in and see our dining room  decorated for winter ..

The hutch has a flocked garland on top with three soup tureens that I was lucky enough to get at thrift stores and estate sales.

A huge vintage blue mason jar filled with snow and a bleached bottle brush tree sits in this glass cloche. One of the deer salt and pepper shakers from BHG at Walmart sits next to it with some flocked greenery..
 On the buffet is a tray from BHG at Walmart , Fitz and Floyd snowman and a wire cloche filled with a bottle brush tree and 2 Jack Russells..
Love this cloche ..

 On the table sitting on a quilt is a thrift store cake pedestal in a burlap wreath filled with greenery and snowflakes. On the pedestal is a glittery house from Homegoods and a pair of those BHG deer .. I have 3 sets of those deer :)
On the back of the hutch is a thrift store platter , another glitter house ( this one is a church form Homegoods) a white reindeer bell from Ross,bottle brush trees , pine cones , Fitz and Floyd snowmen tea pot.. silver trays and snowflakes.
 The ice skate tree still sits in the corner , and the book page wreath is still in the window.

A little Winter Stitching

 Good Morning !
I am so excited to show you this little winter stitchy finish !
 Yesterday morning I got it mounted on needlework board and clipped it to the clipboard frame I found at Michael's last fall.
 I definitely have a thing for houses :) The January cottage from Country Cottage Needleworks is here on the buffet too.

 It's on a cake pedestal I got at Joann Fabrics last year on major clearance. It is sitting with all the little putz type houses I got at the little thrift store in our town.
 The colors all go great with the aqua chalk painted buffet...


 This was Autumn of the four seasons in the fall.. Hoping to have the spring design finished for this year ..

Thanks so much for your visit !  I Hope you have a wonderful day !

Winter In The Kitchen 2014

 Happy Wednesday !
Come on in and see the kitchen decorated for winter !
 This big thrift store basket held a Santa for Christmas and I switched him out for this cute snowman ..I added a big winter pick I got at Michaels last week on super clearance..I also added the little owl salt and pepper shakers .They are from BHG at Walmart .
 I love decorating the chalk painted hutch for the seasons.. The roosters stay on top all year round. I just wrote Winter on the silver tray painted with chalkboard paint.The garlands from Christmas stayed up with the white lights.
 Inside there are roosters and cow creamers. A silver tray , bottle brush trees , pinecones and snowman plates I found thrifting last year .

On the shelf is a vintage scale with a cute thrift store snowman mug , ice skate ornament , mason jars and bottle brush trees.


 I took some of my roosters and put them in this wrought iron 2 tier tray with mason jars , flocked greenery ,bottle brush trees, and burlap ribbons. Love this little winter scene by my sink..
 These roosters are from a flea market last summer .. they are my favorites !
 On the table is the galvanized centerpiece..and the winter subway art table runner

 The shelf holds some more winter thrift store plates, mason jars, bottle brush trees and a picket fence snowman sign.
 Another vintage scale with a snowman cookie jar , greenery and pinecones sit on this upside down wicker tray. A pedestal bowl holds more greenery and cross stitched ornament. Love the white chicken with his wreath around his neck.
 Of course my favorite seasonal decoration is the big chalkboard..

 I love all the winter photos with the blue hour outside .. It just makes it look so wintery !

Thanks so much for your visit !  I Hope you have a wonderful day !

January Stitching

 Good Morning !
I finished up my January stitching ..and this is the end of the Country Cottage Needleworks cottages and wordplays from With Thy Needle and Thread for me ! So excited to be finished ! As it stands I am not going to stitch Novembers since I decorate for Christmas early .. But this is the last of the eleven months !
 The January cottage sits on the aqua buffet in the family room.. I have a strand of white lights woven through the mason jars and the lanterns and little houses.

 The colors of the January cottage fit right in here !
 I love that deer ,it came from a Gordman's before Christmas ..I got 2 of them :) It's sitting on an urn from the Goodwill.
 I used a piece of sheet metal on both of these and that attaches to a magnet on the frame so I can change them out every month. The back of the frame that the cottage sits on is a bleached color burlap.
 The January wordplay sits on the  desk in the family room in a wooden tray .
 I used a thrift store sweater to frame it out and its on a chalkboard painted thrift store tray ..
 If you would like to see all the other months click here ! I love them all and it will be so fun to pull them out every month FINISHED !!!! I am starting a new monthly series as soon as it comes called a Year In chalk ..Have you seen it ? They look like little cross stitched chalkboards ! I am excited to get started on that !
Yesterday the sunset was amazing !
I finished stitching  this ornament for Santa Sundays on Instagram ..come find me if you are on IG @priscillablain ..hashtag #santasundayxs for all you stitchers to stitch something Christmasy on Sundays. This one is from a JUst Cross Stitch ornament issue .
We still have cold and snow .. the view out of our living room window..
