Good morning friends!
This mantle display was really my Christmas one.
However with all of the greenery and fruit,
just decided to keep it up a bit longer for Winter.
Each side has boxwood in an urn,
a glass candlestick with red candle
and some stone fruit.
I also added a bottle brush tree to
each of the glass candlestick globes.
Cedar garland underneath.
Looks good for Winter too,
don't ya think?
The stocking is more Christmas themed,
however sine my mom made this for me,
it makes me smile when I look at it.
So it stays too. :-)
I like to do displays for Winter after Christmas.
With the long dark cold nights,
it makes it more cheerier inside
with greens and snowmen throughout.
Do any of you decorate for Winter?
In other news.
We lost my neighbor the other day.
She passed in her sleep at 57. So young.
Then a family member of Bob's passed yesterday.
Am hoping our year gets better.
My daughter thought she was having a stroke.
Her fingers started tingling.
Her lips froze, and then the left side of her
face went numb.
They ruled out the stoke, but then told her it
might be a brain infection.
Hearing that news I lost it.
I cried all night and into the morning.
It wasn't until she called back and said
the MRI found nothing, that they
realized she might be allergic to her meds...
which she was.
Thankfully now she came home last night.
Hopefully now she can heal.
Thank you again for all of your thoughts & prayers.
Winter Mantle Blessings To All!
