Winter White Mantel

I was sitting on the couch taking a break yesterday and I was staring at my half empty mantel. Does anyone else leave empty spaces around the house after Christmas?? I took the Christmas decorations down, but I never put anything back up in their place. I do this quite often actually after Christmas. Mostly because I’m not sure what needs to go in it’s place. Often times I’m bored with what was there before. So, I just leave things empty. Give the house room to breathe for a while. And give my mind space to imagine. But, yesterday, it needed something. So, I shopped the house, and gathered together some winter looking items and there you have it!

Cozied Up Master Bedroom For Winter

Are the temps getting cooler where you are?? We were forced to turn on the heat about a week ago because we had a night with temps below freezing. When it gets cooler outside, I always feel like getting cozy. That means pulling out all the cozy sweaters, cozy bedding, soft blankets, and pillows. The softer and the fluffier the better! Am I right? I had been on the lookout for a new comforter for our bed. I only had a few requirements: it needed to match our current color scheme – navy blue and white/cream/beige, it needed to be 100% cotton, and it needed to not break the budget. TJ Maxx to the rescue!! And it’s so fluffy!! Not too warm, and not too light. Perfect!
