Hey y’all…My fireplace mantel has been barren since all of the holiday decor was packed away. I had left it totally void of any anything on the shelf, and just couldn’t stand any longer. So…I’ve just completed a quick update. I really liked how the mantel looked at Christmastime, so I decided to use a lot of the same elements.
The silver and mercury glass are a perfect Winter decor favorite of mine.
And y’all know I love bright green moss too. Fresh moss grows year-round…even in the Winter in my area of Georgia.
The fireplace has been getting a big workout of late. Our freezing temps and snow flurries make me grateful that we have it. Whoever wakes up first, either me or Honey Bee, lights the fire and it burns all day until we go to be at night. We may need to take out a loan when the gas bill arrives
This cotton boll wreath was made in a flash. I just added the cotton to a grapevine wreath and hung it above the mantel.
I can’t get enough of this vintage loving cup and moss…
I added silver platters to mix in with the vintage trophies and mercury glass.
I was fortunate to score this set of six oversized mercury glass votives. I bought them on clearance after Christmas at TJ Maxx for $4.00.
Luckily pinecones are plentiful in my yard…
It’s so much nicer to gaze at the roaring fire and see the shimmering glass on the mantel. The wintery mix of silver, pinecones and branches make me appreciate the season and all it has to offer.
