The barrel above has pine branches and sticks pretty much just shoved into it, with tags (my kids initials) dangling from the branches.
Skis above my picture wall in our family room.
A few objects on my mantle...simple candlestick, mason jar with pinecones, spool with ribbon and box wood garland.
Have fun adding little touches here and there. Even if you're not entertaining in the next few days...the little things can add so much to the warmth and happiness of your home.
