All the red, green and gold Christmas decorations are down. They have been packed in the totes and carried to the shed to remain until the end of November.
Not wanting to go to earth tones and springy items I have opted to have a winter look. I have been planning this for several months – even back during yard sale shopping…looking for items that would fall into this category. Did not find a lot – but a few items. Also made up a couple of decorated candles for the mantel a couple of months ago. Here is the link to those:
Went through my collections of white and cobalt blue - added some silver - some bling-bling looking items…arrived at the look I was aiming for. Also got out my snowmen to add to the winter look. Just heard from one of the local weathermen cold cold weather with snow is predicted starting Sunday. If that is the case there will be snow on the outside and winter snowy items in the house.
Here are some pictures showing my winter wonderland!
The dining room table has this new tapestry table runner.
Silver and white – on the dining room table.
Snow flakes - ignore the bright spot on the glass…the flash
Layered look on this arrangement.
Started with a silver charger (was gold and then spray painted to silver).
Added the white milk glass plate that is scalloped with the inside of the scallop
Next came the cobalt blue salad plate.
Added the candle and the silver picks.
I went ahead and left these two winter white St. Nicks out.
This cute snowman was one of my yard sale finds…doesn’t he have
Mr. and Mrs. Snowman
Gave them a deep blue background as they were lost against
the white wall. These are rather old – had them for several years
Used silver tinsel with snowflakes.
The small candles would look better if they were a white white instead
of an off white…but these where what I had…so just
but you get the idea.
We are kicking around the idea of painting the fireplace – any experience in this dept?
It was a gift this Christmas.
When not turned on it has a silver and glittery look.
Turn it on - then the lower part turns a pretty blue.
As you can tell from the date of the pictures – they were taken yesterday. When in Wal-Mart today I found some blue velvet poinsettias – have not decided where I will use them.
I suppose I will leave my winter scenes out for several weeks – or at least until I decide what will take it’s place. When in the shed the other day and looking at the items stored there – not many of them looked interesting. Seems like they have been around forever.
Where ever you live – stay warm and safe!
