It is still winter at my house, even though the temp is suppose to hit the low 80's this weekend.
Even if it will be saying "spring" or even "summer" outside. The inside still says "Winter".
I really hate it when all the Christmas decor comes down. It seems so depressing. And heaven knows I hate to be depressed. So I decided that I could keep out the snowflakes and the pine cones, the mercury glass and celebrate "Winter". Especially since we really don't get "winter" here in southern California.
I used the same letters that I used in my "winter" banner on my mantel, only smaller for this little vignette. I have no idea what the font is. I found the letters in the book Weddings. It is a Memories of a Lifetime book. I also added some wintry little prints.
I didn't like the photo display by itself, so I placed it inside one of my white pitchers.
I really like the black & white, silver color scheme. And it was not almost 9am when I took these photos. It was actually almost 8am. My clock is still on daylight savings time. I only have to wait a few more months & it will be the right time again.
I hung a snowflake ornament from a white ironstone platter.
I just love these bottle brush trees. I kept them out after Christmas as they say "winter" to me. I've had them for a few years. I'm not sure where I got them, my guess is, Home Goods, Marshalls or TJ Maxx.
These mercury glass votive candle holders are etched with snowflakes. They originally came from Target a few years back. I had them on my Christmas mantel. But exchanged them for larger mercury glass ones for my winter mantel. And moved these to my hutch.
I added this large snowflake to one of my white plates. The mercury glass birdies came from Target last year.
As you can see, I have a thing for white ironstone, plates and pitchers.
I used 2 of the apothecary jars left over from Christmas. They were already filled with glittered pine cones or pine cone ornaments. Still works for winter. The jar on the left had jingle bells at Christmas, I exchanged the bells for these number balls.
I have a thing for cloches as well.
I placed a small vintage feather tree under this cloche.
And another one under this cloche. But I forgot to add some snow to this one. The cheese dome cloche in the back is left over from Christmas. It is filled with pine cone ornaments.
And that concludes this portion of the "Winter" tour.
I still have a few more areas of my family room that I have decorated for winter. Hopefully you will get to see them before it's Valentine's Day. Keep your fingers crossed!
