This is the pom pom wreath I made last year. I added this black and white striped ribbon to it and hung it in our entryway. I love how it looks there and the ribbon really makes it pop.
I loved the way I did our winter mantel a couple of years ago and went back to doing something similar, but with one big change. Instead of bare branches in the vase, I decided it was bare enough outside and we needed more greenery inside.
I love using our mercury glass candlesticks this time of year. It adds a bit of bling to the dullness of everything. If you’re wondering, I bought these a few years ago from Pottery Barn on final clearance.
Doesn’t this green and white faux plant look better than bare branches? It makes me think spring is right around the corner.
As you can see, ALL our Christmas decor has been put away until next year. I like to keep my most recent magazines and catalogs on the coffee table, along with my new sheep and another green plant.
I bought a pair of these white sweater throw pillows at least three years ago from Michael’s. They were ridiculously inexpensive and with the faux fur trim, I’ve been able to use them from Christmas until I start decorating for spring. Molly used to love laying on one, and that’s the one I’ve since given to Sadie to use. I’m only showing you the really clean white one, for obvious reasons; but it really does cozy up our place for winter.
I left the white birch logs and pinecones, but put away the red glass ornaments, feathers and green pine.
This is our current centerpiece on the dining table. You can see how it’t behind our couch and how Sadie was able to get onto this table. Knock on wood, I know she hasn’t been back on it since she made that mess with the sugared apples. In the background, you can see our deer throw pillow and faux fur throw, where it’s easy to grab . I also left my penguin throw pillow out for awhile.
Yes, this tells how we’re all feeling with the cold!
Our one daughter-in-law always give me a poinsettia plant for Christmas. Last years stayed around until spring, and for right now, I really enjoy the little pop of color it brings to us.
