Winter Wonderland

Good evening!  I hope you're tucked in safely with a warm fire where you live.  We're expecting more snow tonight here in the midwest.  I wanted to show you some more pictures of my Christmas decorating.  First the kids playroom.  We are blessed to have three mantels in our home.  I get to play around with different looks, as my hubby loves to tease me about. 

I wanted a winter feeling with snowy flakes and greens.  I used my antique green lamp, few snowflakes, garland dusted with snow, and ball jars to achieve the look.  I've searched high and low for this pom pom garland.  I ended up finding it at two places Meijer (Katie Brown collection) and Dollar General believe it or not.  The little tree was a garage sale find.  I painted the base white with antique medium over top.

This is my Snowman collection in the basement.  I've been collecting them for about 20 years.

This is my basement fireplace mantel.  I didn't change it much from last year.  I really loved my window frame with the frosty grapevine and snowmen.

my little winter village

Here's an overall shot of the room.  I did a little forest of trees in the corner. 

my favorite snowmen, chalkware collection

These are the theatre style seats that my hubby built me last year.  I had to deck them out with snowmen.  I'm still looking for the perfect throws.

Blessing this Christmas to you and your family,



  1. I am loving your mantels!! Beautiful!!


  2. Everything looks so nice Carey. Love all the white, snow & snowmen! Very festive. The best thing about decorating with snowmen (IMO) is they aren't just for Christmas, they can last through Jan. as well. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Looks fantastic! Your forest of trees is a great idea.

  4. It all looks so beautiful! Your mantel is so pretty! Love the window, i'm really thinking I need to go out and find myself one it looks really neat and fun to decorate! I hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas!!!!
