Happy Wednesday, Friends! Since today is my first post of the new year, I thought it would be fun to resume The 15 Minute Fix. Now that the Christmas decorations are stowed away for another year, I'm adding a few cozy accents for the winter months, starting with my mantel. As I've shared before, it isn't my favorite season and when it comes to winter decor, I'm drawn to simple and soothing with just a touch of whimsy...
It's the time of year when many of us are motivated to declutter and organize, but once the holidays are over and it's all put away, doesn't the house seem a bit bare? After storing the decorations from my holiday mantel, I started with a blank canvas. I placed vintage sheet music in the center and then stacked several books on top. I often use vintage books in my decor. They add character and charm and there is just something comforting about them.
Next, an ironstone platter from my thrifted collection and some mini pinecones were added.
An assortment of LED candles for cozy lighting...
....and a vintage teacup of fragrant lavender to soothe the senses.
Now for a little touch of whimsy. Truth be told, don't we all have days we wish we could hibernate during the winter?
Here's a wider view...

This sweet polar bear was a gift from my mother, years ago. Isn't she adorable? I learned something new while writing this post. Unlike other bears, only pregnant polar bears hibernate ;)
Anyone suddenly have the urge to nap? Stay warm!
