More fluffing and floofing after the crazy Christmas removal. I always feel like we're missing half our house after we put our Christmas decor away. It's almost like Christmas morning all over again when you dig out your regular decor from the plastic bins. However, right now I feel like I don't want to see a rubbermaid tote again for many months.
Continuing on with boxwood and brass.....
i added a fur shawl to this african bronze to keep her warm for the winter months.
simplified the vignette on top of the dresser with some green (of course), brass and an antique tobacco tin
our entryway console. the small handled tin is actually an old peanut butter can. i live for peanut butter. seriously love. i would have to go to the store daily to restock. thank goodness they advanced the size of the jars.
love me some gears.
i spy an oliver on the back of the sofa
wine bottles everywhere right now. someone might try to assume i drank all of them just to place around the house. never.
you can see close-ups of our winter mantel here
this vignette benefits from a grainsack as a runner and a mixture of metals and glass. i also found some metal baking tins that work great as tealight holders.
this area just sparkles and glistens at night when lit.
that book on top of the stack is miss mustard seed's. if you haven't the opportunity to read it yet you should.
i found this hunk of wood a few months back, dug it out of the garage and now it makes a great candleholder. i lined up some of our tarnished silver and i love the way it turned out. i'. bordering on minimalism here. **laughing**
trev helped me revamp the tops of our cupboards in the kitchen. we removed all the green items and farmhouse chic'd it. i added some galvanized items, a dough bowl and our large toolbox(below). i grouped all our green dishes on the shelf above the toaster. i think it reads in a better flow. plus i can now use all the green bowls on a regular basis without climbing a ladder to get them down. nothing makes me feel short like our kitchen cupboards.
squeaky clean. makes you feel like progress has been made.
now to keep it that way for awhile. it won't make a day. this photo is missing my electric kettle that is a permanent fixture on our stove because i am a green tea addict.
Are you making changes after winter in your home?
Have a great day,
