It's a rare thing where I live in Texas. It shuts everything down when it happens even if it's just a dusting.
Because it's rare, I love it. I want to stand outside and let it fall softly around me.

To capture that wonder, I went with a Winter Wonderland theme.
I started with my mantel, using my chalkboard art to set the tone.
The lanterns came from Target's dollar spot.
The silver reindeer sleigh, a gift from my niece and twin sister.
Then I put up my tree...well, I tried to...
It's going in a different spot this year and the old tree was too wide. What's a girl to do? Gift the old of course, and go buy a skinny one! The one I got was pre-lit. Oh my word, it was too easy! What took me so long? Lol.
Vintage Mercury glass look ones,
Furry boots and glittery mittens,
And furry reindeer all create my wintery look.
A bleached drop cloth makes the perfect skirt
And snowflake clips along with a giant snowflake make up the topper.
I love my Winter Wonderland look. Now if we could just get the real stuff...
Next time, I'll share more of the city house decor and the farmhouse too. Have a wonderful week!
