A simple velvet ribbon will provide a cheery sight as the snow starts to pile up.
In my entry way area, which is commonly referred to as a mud room here in Maine, I have a spray of snow capped garland that will stay all season long as well. The garland tops an old window pane that I converted a few years ago to a mirror, using a special paint that is added to the reverse side of the glass.
A sea urchin and sea shell I mounted on a piece of driftwood, serve as natural ornaments.
Mother Nature sure makes it easy on the pocketbook this time of year.
