Something about Winter.
“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.”
― Edith Sitwell

“What good is the warmth of summer, without the cold of winter to give it sweetness.”― John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America
“My old grandmother always used to say, Summer friends will meltaway like summer snows, but winter friends are friends forever.”
― George R.R. Martin
Now that you are in the Winter mood, on with our Frosty Winter Mantel.
Frosty, snowy elements such as branches with glitter or snow on them.
Glass jars with snow in them. Snowflakes. Greenery with a kiss of snowy frost is lovely.
Milk glass vases with frosted twig branches. Twig wreath with a sparkly touch of crushed crystals. White candles in mason jars.
We placed a milk glass vase on each side of the mantel.
Grateful for mason jars! In our home we use them as everyday
drinking glasses and for a multitude of other things, like on our Winter mantel we just added some snow and a candle for a lovely Wintry look.
Twig wreath that has been dusted with crystal glitter is home for some gently fallen snowflakes to rest.
Straight crystal twigs are placed in a tall jar with a bed of freshly fallen snow.
Just a little white garland around the mirror and a few icicles for a Winter feel.
Time passes by all too quickly not to enjoy each season God gives us. Bring the Winter indoors with the things you have on hand or take a nature walk and see what you can find.
The spirit of a man will sustain him in sickness,
But who can bear a broken spirit?
