A little at a time I am putting away the Christmas decorations. The Christmas mantle was “dismantled” and up went the “Winter Mantle”..Over the weekend I ran across a few bargains at Pottery Barn. One of those bargains was a pair of candlesticks. Originally marked $99.00 each and marked down to $32.99, woo hoo!! So up they went on the mantle. Enjoy!
This is the before..The Christmas Woodland Mantle
This is the after..The Simply Stated Winter Mantle
I started out by placing white (previously used on mantle) and brown ice covered branches in a clear vase filled with faux snow.
I then added two mercury glass acorn finials and branches of pine cones with snow and a couple of winter birds that I have used in my Christmas scapes.
The beautiful candlestick I bought at Pottery Barn on clearance. Added more pine stems with a little bling.

Just thought I would throw in a cute picture of my granddaughter standing in front of the huge and beautiful
Gingerbread House in the lobby of the Grand Floridian in Disney World.
Hope you enjoyed my Simply Stated Winter Mantle and would love to know what you think, so leave a comment if you so desire. Thank you!!
