Winter – Rest

IMG_8004

The living room mantle is the focal point of our small living room.  During Christmas my angel collection comes out of the attic and the living room explodes with color and dozens of winged creatures.  Tiles, sculptures, pillows, wall hangings….all filled with angels (I stopped counting after 150).  I enjoy seeing them and more than a few have their own stories.

While the Christmas season is filled with its own energy of smells, sounds, and images…time does not stand still.

The new year comes, angels are boxed and returned to the attic, and the living room opens up.

I decorate the mantle differently for the deepest part of winter.

Calm, classic, beautiful.  Restful to the eyes.

Welcome winter!

    Birch trees are my very favorite. When I was first married, we lived in Saudi Arabia and I knew that I wanted to have a piece of home with me. So we took birch logs with us to build lamps for our new house in a strange land to remind us of home!

      What a creative and clever idea. I did not remember you lived in Saudi Arabia. Hope to have tea with you next time you are nearby 🙂
