I’m loving my simple mercury glass winter mantel right now. Seriously- every time I walk by I think how much I love it – which is something considering how simple it is. Maybe after all the holiday decorations, I was just ready for something quiet and beautiful.
Actually, all of these things were a part of our Christmas mantel: I left the pine cone topiaries where they were and just grouped all the mercury glass together in front of my newly painted window frame.
How easy is that? I simply edited what I had and eliminated lots of holiday decorations, and voila! A pared down winter mantel.
I love seeing the candles lit- the warm flames against the cold glass…like our warm homes protecting us from the frigid air outside.
Or something. That’s as close as I get to waxing poetic around here.
Do you decorate for winter?
