Whimsical Snowman Mantel 2015

It's that time of the year again! I have been decorating for days and I'm finally done! I decided to go with a whimsical icy snowman theme this year on my mantel. I have always had a thing for snowmen and have used them in my Christmas decor over the years. I found the snowmen at Kirkland's this year and designed the garland and wreath around them. 

I will be sharing more pictures of my house soon!

Enjoy!

Fall Around the House

I hope you all are enjoying fall! It will be Thanksgiving before we know it...two more weeks!  

I shared my fall mantel several weeks ago and wanted to share the rest of my fall decor with you. If you follow me on Facebook then you have seen most of these pictures, but I added a few new ones. I love the colors of fall and can't wait to decorate from year to year. Fall colors just make me happy! 

Enjoy the pictures! 

I will be decorating for Christmas soon and will be sure to share...

Fall Mantel 2015

 Well, it's been a while! You know you can always find me on Facebook!
Are you ready for fall? I sure am. I love the rich colors of fall along with the nice weather!
 I made the wreath using pumpkins, sunflowers, berries and foliage. I added a berry garland and poked in some moss balls and pumpkins. I used the bird pictures on my previous mantel, but decided to leave them once I hung the wreath. They just looked like they were meant to be!  I needed something tall on each side and since I have done lanterns for the past two years I was on a mission to find something different! I found the wheat at Pier 1 Imports and dressed them up with ribbon and pumpkins. I also had the moss balls in the metal urns on my previous mantel. I liked the way they looked, but they needed some color so I added some fall leaves around the bottom. I'm still working on the rest of the house and will post pics next week.

Spring On The Kitchen Island

I brightened up my kitchen island with a silk arrangement I made out of tulips, berries, and greenery. The bunny is from Pier 1 Imports and the tray is from T.J. Maxx.
 
The colors of spring make me happy!
 

Spring Cloche With Birds

I'm so ready for spring!

This is a little spring display on my entry way table using a cloche from Pier 1 Imports. I added nests, birds, vines and moss balls to complete the vignette.
This is very easy to make. The hardest part is getting that nest to sit just right inside the cloche!
Happy Spring decorating!

Christmas Mantel 2014

I'm catching up on my blog!
This is my Christmas mantel 2014 with a Santa theme.
Believe blocks, glittered curly sticks and lots of ornaments made my mantel sparkle last year!
