It is Winter… some updates

January 7, 2014 by 7 Comments

Hello there!  How are you dear friends?   I hope you are doing well and you are safe and warm during the winter storm “Polar Vortex” that is gripping most of the country. The cold temps have cramped my style a little, or is it the “winter blues”?  I’m working on getting my act together here and planning on tackling some of the projects on my “to do list”.  I managed to clean up our office and organize it some what…however I don’t think it’s blog-worthy.  It’s just a basic clean-up, filing and purging. I used what we already had in place as far as filing cabinet and storage bins. Nothing fancy, no color- co-ordinating going on here. Maybe one day?

Looking around the house…it needs some lovin for sure.   After taking down Christmas everything looks pretty bare.  I just now added a couple of items to the mantel and coffee table, after finding a couple of cute ceramic spheres at TJ Maxx, on sale…of course.

Winter Vignette 3Y’all are familiar with my mirrored tray…I tend to keep it and the hurricane on the table…rain or shine!  I’ve added the ceramic ball, that resembles a ball of rope or yarn and a vase with faux tulips.

Winter Vignette 1I love my “wood wick” candle….it really crackles when it’s lit.  So fun and relaxing while listening to the sound of the flickering flame.

Winter Vignette 4This tray vignette still says “winter, but spring is on it’s way” to me.

Winter mantelThe mantel is so simple….I do like that touch of green!

Winter mantel 1That is all the updating I’ve done so far…I’m still enjoying burning lots of candles and my favorite, the wood-wick candle! How are doing?   Are you decorating for winter?

I’m so happy you stopped by,  next time stay a little while longer, I love your company!
