More Winter Decor

I know that most of you are tired of winter already. But not me. But then, we have been having temps in the low 80's for the past few days.

I kind of long for snow and cold temps. Isn't it funny how we always want something we don't have.

Here is some more of my "winter" decor. I think these photos will finish it up. This weekend I plan to decorate for Valentine's Day.

Here is the top of my TV armoire. I switched out the twig reindeer and sleigh from Christmas for some of my white pitcher collection. The pitchers sit on top most of the year.

I added the willow tree sticks to this vase back in November. I still like it. I kept the Dollar Tree snowflakes hanging from the branches from Christmas.

I added this plate my sister in law made for me a few years ago.

Here is the shelf in my family room.

I switched out the mercury glass trees for these bottles. The bottles have been here for the past few months, except for Christmas. I left the Dollar Tree snowflake leaning up against the window mirror.

I love this white bottle brush tree. I moved it from being in my nativity vignette (which is now put away) to here. I even kept the snow on the shelf from Christmas.

I changed up a few things in this vignette from Christmas.

I added another blue/silver acorn inside the cloche and a frosty blue leaf ornament to the outside. I got both on after Christmas clearance at Walmart. I found them at 75% off.

I switched out the jingle bells in the apothecary jar for my letter balls. And I changed the small ironstone pitcher for the mercury glass candle holder I had there previously. I also put away the Christmas angel that had been sitting here.

Added another frosty blue leaf from Walmart clearance to this jar. Don't you just love it? I bought two and now I am wishing I had bought more. I always do that, do you?

I removed the Christmas print from this frame & moved the book page wreath from my mantel to hanging from this frame.

I just love the colors in this vignette.

In this cloche, I took out the small Christmas cloche (the cloche within a cloche). Moved the white trees around and added some small rocks that say "Brrr".

Makes me want to put on a coat. Just kidding!

And finally we have my "winter" letter art sign that I made last year. This year I hung it on the wall instead of using it on my mantel. If you want to know how I made it, just click HERE.

I never did get my other cloches are made up for winter. Oh well, hopefully I'll get them done for Valentine's Day.

My plans this past weekend was to get everything made that I'm planning on doing for my Valentine's Day decor, but I got nothing accomplished. But that is par for me. I did watch Brideszilla and My Fair Wedding all day yesterday. I love those shows.

Hopefully I'll get something done during the week, or maybe next weekend. My goal is to buy nothing new. Just make stuff from things I have around the house. I may have to cheat & buy a piece of colored paper or two.

I need to get something done or I'll have nothing to post about. I've been super lazy. I can't seem to get motivated to do anything around my house. I still have a couple of Christmas boxes that have yet to make it up in the attic. Don't worry, they are packed up (mostly). I just need some muscle power to get them up the ladder.

  2. Just awesome Kim....I haven't done a bit of winter decorating. This time of year I feel like shutting down....12 degrees outside.

    Your vignettes are always amazing! Love all the whites and pale blues. I picked up some of those blue acorns, but didn't see those beautiful leaves!

    I need to do something to my mantel for V-day. Hopefully I'll be in the mood after our trip to Disney in a couple weeks!

LOL Today is the first sunny day in a long line of gray and dismal skies, so it is really nice out. Still in the twenties, but hey- that is a warm up! Wish I was in Palm Springs, like I was a couple of years ago at this time. aahhh...... sun and warm days! ~ Sue
