Winter Decor - No Mantel, No Problem!

I have been decorating my home with some wintery decor today.  The Cricut has been workin' it making snowflakes for the house.

I do not have a fireplace/mantel so instead I decorate on top of our entertainment furniture.  It is nothing spectacular but my Big J said, "wow its like a winter wonderland in here" when he got home from preschool this afternoon.  Awww, what a sweet boy







The handywork of the Cricut - love it!



The best part is that I can still use some of our Christmas ornaments, some bought...



and some that I just made, like my sweet little sled!



This is my decorated mirror in our foyer.  I used some of our ice skate ornaments and added my Willow Tree statue that the husband got me for Christmas.


And here is that same place just a couple of days ago. 
Looks so cluttered now - but doesn't all Christmas decor look different after Christmas??

Love your snowflakes!! I would love having a cricut- I have a friend who has one and keep trying to figure out how to sneak it out of her house without her noticing!!

I too have the cricut envy...is there a support group for that one? Love the snowflakes! Much better than the real snow!

Wanted to thank you again for the assistance with the ornament tree! Shortly after I started my own blog -would love to have you stop by. =)

I love the white skates cause they remind me of hours of watching you skate when you were little! Mom
