So much of the country has experienced more than a little touch of winter this past week. Even here in the south, we’ve felt the chill with temperatures dipping down into the single digits. But while many people are buried under a few feet of snow, we’ve been lucky to just be cold.
After all the festivities of the holidays, my house has been feeling as bleak as the weather outside. It sure feels empty and bare once the tree and decorations come down. Fortunately I have a few frosty friends to cheer me up. And with temperatures this cold, they’ve been fitting in quite nicely around here.
I couldn’t decide exactly how I wanted mine to look. So I made one au naturale, with bare fabric tea dyed.
And then I made a second guy, this time painted with a crisp coat of white.
And together they are adding quite a bit of cheer to my living room mantel and hearth.
Along with a few other frosty touches.
Glittered and tinseled snowflakes. Icy blue mason jars and antique insulators. Tarnished silver and winter birds. A sweet snowy scene my boy painted way back during his early elementary days.
Happy things to set the scene.
Thanks so much for stopping by, my friends! Hope you’re managing to keep warm. And hope you all have a very wonderful weekend!
