"Cuz Baby It's Cold Outside"

Okay, so maybe winter in Houston is not quite the same as let's say....winter in Dallas ;-) but it does get chilly. Right now it's a frosty 44 degrees and the temps are dropping...brrrr. So instead of doing my walking in this cold I am going to blog about what i did with my mantle.

After all of the Christmas stuff got boxed up my mantle was looking a little bare. So when i saw Beth's winter mantle linky party I was motivated to do some sprucing up.
I brought my beautiful Santos Angel that normally sits on my bedroom dresser out to the living room to join in on the fun.
These metal plate holders hold different plates with different seasons. Right now they have these chicken plates i found at target 10 years or so ago.

I love the colors in them so i keep them up for the majority of the year.
I grabbed these decor ice skates out of my Christmas bin. I figured that was pretty wintery so i plopped them on the mantel, besides i love the colors in them and i didn't want to put them away just yet.

I hung a little snowflake garland over the mirror (lets face it It'll be the only snowflakes I'll see this winter) and wala i was done.

I didn't do very much for winter because after seeing some of the cauuute valentines mantels, these baby's are coming down soon anyway. Now I need to link up, then i am going to make some delicious hot cocoa. Is it still sugar free if i add marshmallows? Oh well, stay warm and have a fantastic New Year!!
