A dear friend brought me a gift on Christmas Eve in this darling burlap bag. I loved the gift and am now obsessed with the bag!
For the record, I do not get the Winter Blahs.
I love Winter!
It’s my favorite season. I love the solitude of it. We stay home, cook comfort food and watch movies in our feety pajamas. We settle in for our Long Winter’s Nap.
After Christmas I do get the urge to re-arrange things a little. OK, I get the urge all the time. Christmas has nothing to do with it, if I’m being honest.
So Friday, after I did my housework I played a little just to change things up a bit!
I started with the livingroom.
I just love the way mercury glass shimmers!
Just a few simple changes for our Winter mantel. The big D sign was made by Jayme at The Fox Peddler and I LOVE it. You can find all of her beautiful work here:
I probably burn more candles in the Winter months, and I’m pretty particular about the scents. This candle was a Christmas gift from our nephew and his wife. I’m really enjoying the way it smells, just clean and fresh.
After I gave my kitchen a really good scrub I roamed around the house on the hunt for things that I don’t normally display in this room. Then I corralled them all in one spot and began to swap them out for the stuff I was tired of.
Nothing like shopping you own house!
When I did my weekly grocery shopping I brought home some fresh flowers and greenery. Fresh Hydrangea in the house is like an instant refresh anyway.
Seeded eucalyptus lasts a really long time and I love it’s blue/green color.
I change this little frame out Seasonally. The bird egg print is an Etsy find.
Just a few small changes. Nothing major, but walking through the house it feels big. Except for the flowers I had everything else already on hand.
Not bad at all for an hours work.
