Oh, how I really love winter.
I love all four seasons.
Winter is second only to autumn as my favorite.
It's still winter here, and can be until late March,
though our snow is melting rapidly for now.
Most of it melted just today.
I do hope the snow comes back soon, though;
it's SO pretty!
If it must be winter, I say
LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW, LET IT SNOW!
Post-Christmas winter decor
is kept simple and light around here.
Lots of whites and silver all around
keeping things fresh enough for the time being.
I have a bajillion candles too -
and burn them all day and most of the evening as well.
And most of you know how I love my birdies.
One may pretty much find them everywhere around here.
I am not one to totally get rid of all our Christmas decor
the minute the holidays are over -
just the really obvious stuff.
The white and neutral winter decor stays out
until February when the St. Valentine's decor takes its place.
So out it goes in February, but not any sooner than that:
Snow flakes, snowmen, pine cones, etc.
keep things delightfully WINTER.
Because it is still winter!
It's going to remain winter for a long while, too!
See the white heart shaped plates hiding under
my white wire teapot above?
They'll be replacing the pine cones ones soon enough.
I'll either be putting some live herbs inside these crocks
or put them away for another year.
But for right now there's extra large tea lights inside
to help keep things in a warm glow during short days
and long cold winter nights!
The foyer changes often, as it doesn't even look like this now.
I put my French antique bisque clock back in the bedroom
and placed my tall white feather tree there in its stead.
I will try to show you it later, it's just too dark to try now.
(Sorry to tease.)
OK here below is now how I have it.
So I didn't tease you very long, haha.
Still apologize for all the shadows and graininess.
Having a very busy day working and didn't have time to get out the lamps for pic. : - )
I have lots more to share, so stay tuned!
This is getting too long,
so I must share winter decor in parts.
I am still upset at myself that I never showed you Christmas!
I had every square inch of this house decorated, too!
I am determined not to let winter completely go by
without sharing at least a few more decor posts this time!
Sorry I have been away so long.
Romeo and I have just been busy
watching the snow.
As always, thank you for stopping by.
