Walking in a Winter Wonderland

I'm featuring each one of my Christmas card designs and some little things to go along with them. This design is called "Winter Wonderland" and was inspired by the cold, frosty days of winter. I imagined walking through the woods after a light snowfall all bundled up and witnessing some furry woodland creatures running around, then coming home to a cabin and a nice cozy fire.
I made a burlap-looking natural colored background and did a soft outline of a lighter pinecone and acorns with the words from the well-known Christmas song, Walking in a Winter Wonderland: "when it snows, ain't it thrilling, though your nose gets a chilling"
Here are some winter wonderland items that would work well if your Christmas decor theme this year is a woodsy, rustic Christmas.

You've got to have boots to actually walk around in that winter wonderland, these are fashionable and will keep your little toesies nice and warm.




I love the fall/winter hues of this ombre coat. It looks very cozy and reminds me of a fall sunset. The drape around the collar is gorgeous.




This chair is perfect for a cabin. It looks inviting and with that splash of turquoise, just a little bit western.




This furry friend will keep you warm on your walk.




I think grey and white is such a fresh color combination. These tiny little bunnies will play all day on your scarf, possibly the best cold weather accessory out there.




Take the chill of the day off with this snowy owl mug.




Cuddle up by the fire with this cutie:




Wallpaper is making a comeback in a bold way. This tree wallpaper just feels chilly.
If you haven't seen ABC's Once Upon A Time show, check out the second episode just so you can see the "Evil Queen" office-it's a monochromatic snowy white and grey room with the smallest pops of apple red in it. Very chic (and very appropriate for Snow White's evil queen, which by the way, what is her actual name?)




Adorn your fireplace with a row of pinecones and string. Better yet, get a bag of cinnamon pinecones so your home smells wonderful.

Change out paintings to reflect the holiday season with simple landscapes of snow.

Use pieces of bark and wood to decorate with. Put a candle on top for a warm glow.
