I used some little snowy owls, a pom pom garland, snowflakes and glass pinecones. I have collected the pinecones for years and had seen the garland idea in a Country Living magazine years ago. I kept forgetting about it until after I decorated my tree each year, but finally remembered to make one this year.
I usually use a lot of red, and gold, but this year just wasn't feeling the red. I wanted more of just a winter feel, with more white and green this time.
I didn't do the usual star, angel or bow this year either. Just a little owl in a nest.
There is something funny going on with these little owls. The last two mornings I have found two little owls at the foot of my bed. Just sitting there waiting for me to get up and see them.
I feel sure they aren't flying in to my bedroom. They have some help.
Looks like I have an owl stalker. This is the culprit sitting high above on her perch.
I'll share my mantel next time.
