Winter Mantel


With Christmas gone and the holiday decor packed up for 11 months, it was time to redo the piano mantel for January. I wanted lots of warm, rustic, winter whites. I threw in lots of natural elements- the birds, the pinecones, the berry garland, the iced wreath-and items that speak to family and tradition.

Here it is:



I'm happy with how it turned out, but not so happy with my pictures. I took about 6 million pictures and still couldn't capture the light the way I wanted. Someday I'll figure this photography thing out.
