Winter Mantel with Buffalo Print Plates

Hello everyone,
We are continuing our tour of My Cozy Corner.
January is whisking by and I want to move into the living room for a look
at the mantel decorated for the Winter months... The last time you
stopped by I shared with you my favorite room.  Go Here.
Our living room is where we live most of time.
 Our home has four bedrooms and two baths.
 We have a large country kitchen and dining room combination
with windows to see all the outside acitivity.
Now that El Nino has hit Northern California it has been raining for
most of January. We are enjoying watching the football playoffs
and of course Downton Abby on Sunday night.
Now to share my Winter Mantel.
During 2015 I used decorative plates on my mantel.
During Christmas I had a pair of adorable deer plates on the mantel Go Here 
 I am going to continue the decorative plate theme this year.
I plan to have these red and black buffalo print plates until March.
I think they will work for the month of February.
The red ribbon on the wreath and the red bands
around the fir trees looks very festive.
I dream about taking a trip and dream about the summer garden. 
I wish my family and friends good health, happiness  and prosperity. 
 Today I am so blessed to have a wonderful hobby of blogging. 
The boxwood wreath is my January wreath. I added a new red bow this year.
About a week after Christmas I went shopping and found some great deals.
All the holiday things were on sale at Pier 1.
I found two faux fir trees in the cans for 50% off. 
The buffalo plates were on sale at Rite Aid for $2.00 dollars each.
 I love when I have an idea and it falls into place.
I have some vignettes and pillows to share
with you in a few days.  I hope you come back
 and see my cute pillow I received as a gift
from my granddaughters.  They helped G'pa buy gifts this year.
 I scored.

  1. Love this look! Kicking myself though because I bought my buffalo check plates from Pottery Barn. And they definitely weren't $2.


  2. Nice! I am liking those buffalo check plates, they look great!

  3. Love this look, I am still in love with plaid!

  4. This looks very nice, Betty. I love the boxwood wreath. The square shape just adds a nice touch to your round plates. Very attractive! Thank you for sharing with us and have a lovely week.


  5. I love boxwood wreaths. You found some great bargains. I like the buffalo plates and must check out our Rite Aid for them. I heard at least in our area Wal Greens bought out Rite Aid.

  6. What a clever use for the plates...very unique plates too!
