My kids have been home on Christmas vacation this week, so when I am not busy with them, I have been putting away Christmas and freshening up vignettes around the house and front door.
Just replacing the reds & greens with greenery and pine cones…
Very simple…but I love playing with my house!
I could not put Mr. Owl away….I just love him too much!
I adore books in any room,..in any home.
Some of the new decor books I got for Christmas…
Beautiful bright sunshine in the middle of the day….
I hope you all have had a wonderful week!
I hope to get back to more of a regular blogging schedule next week.
And I have some fun things to share!
Share the Love!

I do envy everyone that has put Christmas away, Angie, but I have been so traditional in going until January 6th, that mine is still up. It is coming down tomorrow though. I just got new totes tonight so I'm raring to go in the a.m.! I'm going to leave my faux greenery in the urn outside our front door with the sled. I think it works for Winter in general, plus it would just be empty otherwise!
Your home looks nice and cozy!

I just took down my Christmas tree today. I only had a few other things out for Christmas this year so it was quick. I do need to take down my wreath tomorrow though.
I love your wreath, very pretty. Your home looks all fresh for winter. Nice!
I never know how to decorate for winter without it feeling too Christmasish but you achieved it perfectly. I love how you used the pinecones!
Great decorating as usual Angie. Now I wish I hadn't put my pine cones away. I just may have to dig them back out. Happy Blogging.

I too am still packing away Christmas 2011, at this rate Christmas 2012 will be here. LOL. Thank you so much for sharing. I hope twenty twelve is everything you wish for and more. I am so glad I found you. I will follow on my way out so I can revisit. I hope you can find the time to come visit me and do the same. I look forward to engaging throughout the year. Cheers SpecialK XoXo
I love your beautiful home!

Happy New Year, Angie! Love the way you've freshened your spaces for winter! I'm in process and look forward to enjoying clean and organized rooms. 🙂
PS– I got the Design Sponge book for Christmas, too! We'll have to compare notes!
Hello new blog friend!
Thanks for the sweet comment, but you are the one with the fabulous house. I love the pinecone wreath and your photography is really, really wonderful!

Love the pine cones! There are a few things I am leaving up for a while yet – poinsettias in white, pine cones, crochet snowflakes in the china cabinet. It all speaks to winter and we still have a few weeks of that left, right?? (:
Your home is so beautiful and inviting. =) I love all the pillows on your couches!
I'm totally stoked to do some non-Christmas winter decor! Love this!
I have enjoyed my stroll through your blog! I am loving your organizing tips – I appreciate you sharing them – I am happy to be your newest follower!
