Rustic Winter Mantel

This time after Christmas has been so strange for me this year. It’s always kind of a strange time because I’m coming off the holiday high & settling back to “normal life” which is never really normal for me. Last year at this time I was opening up a store for the first time ever & this year at the exact same time we are moving our store to a bigger location. It really never ends. We have had no rest or relaxation at home so our winter decor wasn’t really a thing I spent a lot of time on. This year I simply took the Christmas stuff down & left up some winter greens & natural elements & that was what I called my winter decor like here on our dining room mantel…

Our mantel is simply just an antique find laying against the wall. I stacked two antique trunks in it & on the trunks I placed an antique typewriter, an antique scale with a vintage sign I found & a tablecloth from Magnolia, & I also have a top of an antique scale filled with pinecones. On the mantel I placed a garland that I believe I picked up from Michaels last year & some pinecones. Over the mantel I have some art from House Of Belonging with a wintery wreath that I found at HomeGoods. I think my favorite par too this winter vignette is the “For Rent” sign that I picked up on a recent picking trip with my friend Abby aka 1/3rd of The Found Cottage trio. We had such a great day that day visiting some of our favorite places & this sign stuck out to me for some reason. I wonder where it’s from, what it was used on, when was it used, so many questions! Such a simple little space, but yet it has tons of cozy wintery texture.

I hope you guys liked this little look at our rustic winter mantel. Winter decor is really just that simple. Taking the Christmas decor out & leaving the winter greens in. It doesn’t have to be anything more than that & that kind of makes this transition period very easy when it comes to decor. Now for the craziness of opening a new store, not sleeping, & trying to keep life in order, I have no fix for that. But the good news? The store opens in 3 days! & than I can rest right? I’m so ready! I can’t wait for the grand re-opening. You can read more and see more of what we have been up to on our event page for Saturday [HERE] & read more about it on the blog [HERE]. Thank you to all of you who have sent us prayers & well wishes! & thank you for stopping by the blog today, I hope you are leaving inspired. xx
