Winter Wonderland.

Nothing like a little snow to make things merry and bright for the holiday season....even if you don't live where there are real snowflakes falling outside! Mmmm hmmm, just use a few bags of fake snow, drizzled in handfuls over the twinkle-lit tree, and you're good to go.
Little details of mittens, and faux flocked boughs, old ice skates, and my personal favorites of the season, my little winter birds, complete the winter wonderland look. 
The giant cardboard letters (From JoAnn's Fabrics and Crafts...available in three sizes!) painted a weathered red, and be-decked with more snow were a fun touch showcasing our company initials...
A coworker friend provided a roaring fire for my big screen behind the fun is that?! 
A thrifted fake wood (plastic!) mirror, reinvented with a coat of white primer and adorned with flocked boughs anda lil' sweet snowman...
...changed the alcove from all business to a warm and welcoming spot in the room.(Sorry for the sort of blurry-out-of-focus-odd-angled picture!) The thing going across the mirror is the Winter Wonderland Banner's reflection.
Oh yes, people, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!


  1. It's beautiful! You really have a gift and I'll bet your co-workers are thrilled with how you've decorated their work place.

  2. Nice to see that your company is open to the sharing of holiday spirit, and allows you to bring festive, winter joy to the business environment! I love your classic style! The mitten and plaid scarf decor is one that I've stored in my mental Rolladex. Can't wait to use that idea!

    On Tuesday I was at JoAnn's and saw that most all letters are $1.00 off each one. If you don't have 40% off coupons, they're on sale.

    Warm holidays wishes!

  3. VERY nice Tracy, love the ice skates. I have some too hanging on the inside of my front door. Quite festive, I think. And the big letters, they look so cool all dressed in 'yule'. Love what you did with the place, GREAT JOB!!!

  4. You have done a beautiful job decorating your workplace, Tracy. They are lucky to have your talent for decor. Have you had time to decorate your home. I have been dragging my feet this year.

  5. Tracey,
    I have followed your blog for years. Slap me silly, but I have seen skates at garage sales and past right by them. Great Job!
