Winter Mantel - White, Tarnished Silver & Mercury Glass

This January found me in a similar place to every January past...taking down Christmas, feeling sort of empty, deciding what to do next.

I opted to keep much of the mercury glass and tarnished silver pieces on the mantel, along with the chippy white picture frames.

I reworked the arrangement, added in some moss balls and a couple of milk glass footed vases, keeping it simple. 

I may decide to add in some winter twigs to the milk glass vases for height. I DO love something organic and textural...but otherwise I'm good until spring fever hits!

Word for the Day:
2 John 1:5
And now I ask you, dear lady—not as though I were writing you a new commandment, but the one we have had from the beginning—that we love one another.

Your frames are beautiful and look fabulous grouped together! Your mantel is perfect for winter...which is back again in my parts with lots of pretty white flakes coming down.

Looks really good Revi. Love mercury glass vases, but don't own any. Your silver pieces are beautiful. Maybe I should try silver on my mantel.
Looking forward to your linky party this week.

Revi, I love it! Your frames are all so gorgeous! Wondering where you find them all? I recently found a large one that I am working on, but that's about it. I love moss balls and you really pulled this together fabulously! Thanks for sharing with SYC.
