Winter Fireplace

I have most of my Christmas decor put away,  but I left out anything that looked wintery.  

After adding a few things to what was left on the fireplace after all the Christmas was packed away I came up with a "Winter" fireplace.

On the left is my Christmas fireplace and on the right is the winter fireplace..     

I replaced the Santa on this end of the mantel with the new Jo Anne Coletti print that my daughter gave me for Christmas

The other Santa was replaced with another cow picture.

I took down the pom pom garland even though it would have worked fine in my winter look because I wanted to use the new beaded snow flakes that I bought at TJ  Maxx on sale the other day.......$1.25 each.

I put a sheep picture on the display cabinet on the left side of the fireplace.....

And a pig picture on the cabinet that's on the other side of the fireplace.

I had taken down the Christmas  trees that were on the left of the fireplace,  but they were quickly replaced with a new tree that I got at TJ!    It had been marked down to 50 and it was half of that the day I bought it......a great find for $25!

So,  there's my winter fireplace!  

Wait......I thought there was a sheep pillow on the there's a deer pillow!   And the sheep pillow is on the floor to the right side of the fireplace..what happened?

I did a flip flop.......

Which do you like better.....the deer or the sheep?


  1. That looks very cute Penny! Your "winter" mantle is lovely. I have a link to you today on my blog as I got my clock back from the clock shop.

  2. I can't believe that tree was 25 cents. I love your winter look. Happy New Year.

  7. I like the deer pillow the best. I think the grey/white is harsher somehow. Happy New Year, Penny! xo Diana

  12. Beautiful....I love the gathering of the lambs.

  13. Great Transformation Penny! I looked at my family room mantle and it really needed next to no tweaking to work for winter. Both pillows are fun, but I love the deer! Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  14. Your winter mantel looks very wintry in white. I like the deer for the winter look. Thanks for joining Monday Social.


  15. Both are charming but I think I'm leaning more towards the deer. I love your blog and all of your decorations! So pretty and inspiring!
