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 !

Great winter display! The cotton does look like little snow balls! I wonder how long it takes to take down your trees? And WHERE do you put all the decorations? Do you have an extra storage shed just for them? Hugs!
