I am really enjoying the clean uncluttered look of my house after the holidays. I luvv.. my snowmen though so they will stay with me a bit longer. I have found my tastes are changing and evolving as I live in my new house ,as well as, all the blog hopping. I really enjoyed the hooked on houses.net holiday open house. Another place I always find inspiration is from a primitive place.
Here's my new mantel look in the family room:
The snowman star was a housewarming gift from my sister.
Remember the graniteware bowl? Well I changed it up just a bit placed a icy wreath and some pines in the bowl. I'm loving white snowflakes and things that have an icy look to them.
I'm still enjoying my fresh balsam candle from B & BW
Each time I glance up at my mantel I remember when my husband and I lived in South Dakota and we went up into the hills. It was so beautiful! The snow had just fallen and it was one of those perfect winter days. I wanted to get some pinecones for decorating and we had such a good time playing in the snow and falling down the sides of the steep hills. I will never forget that day.
