My Winter Mantel

So we find ourselves mid season!
Christmas is put away, and Valentines Day is still weeks away…so what to do?
I think there is never a bad time for decorating!
It helps me to look forward to the changing seasons and upcoming holidays!
It’s especially helpful during the loooooooooong winters/springs we have here.
Basically our winters start in October/November and they don’t end until May…for reals.
And it can be (I mean IS…who are we kidding here) very very tedious and depressing.
So I decorate.
It makes the house cheery and puts a smile on my face.
This year, like last years mantel, I ‘shopped’ around my home.
I certainly have enough stuff that I don’t need to buy anything new…so I scoured my decorations, and went room to room looking for things that would work.  I knew I wanted white, and earthy…
Here’s what I came up with!

Do you decorate all year round?
Leave a link!  I’d love to see!

Here are my mantels from seasons past, if you are interested!

    I really like the bookshelves in the pictures and would like to get something similar. Were they custom made? Do you know if I can order them online somewhere please?
    Thank you
