Christmas decor is still in my Great Room.
I plan to pack up and store the decorations away this coming weekend
as I will be housebound due to the predicted 6 to 8 inches of snow
that will fall in our area. I must say, even though the snow can sometimes
be a problem with driving conditions in our area with the added ice,
I am looking forward to our first snowfall of the year.
I love the natural beauty that it brings and the sights and sounds
of the kids sledding down the hills behind our house on the golf course.
One of those kids is my hubby!
~ ~ ~ A SIMPLE AND COZY WINTER VIGNETTE ~ ~ ~
I had purchased some beautiful white hydrangeas for my sunroom.
I loved them so much and they truly gave a sense of winter beauty
that I went back to purchase more. (Trader Joe’s)
It was dreary, rainy day.
I gathered my Luminara candles, votives and my silver trophy tray.
The glow of the flickering candles sets a wonderful feeling of warmth
on a dreary day.
I had placed the additional white hydrangeas I purchased in a vintage ironstone creamer.
Rather than having a tray filled with just votives and luminara candles,
I thought it would be pretty to add the hydrangeas to the tray.
I thought at first that I would wait for a sunny day
to take the photos of this winter vignette
but I thought that maybe I would just have you see how it
brightens a dreary day!
Using more fresh flowers in my winter decor is definitely my plan,
especially the ones that are of the winter white color!
Now the predicted 6 to 8 inches seems like a lot to me,
me being a former Florida girl … but I must think of my niece, Melissa,
who lives in Colorado and got 20 inches of snow yesterday!
Have a great weekend and those of you who will experience a snow event,
I wish you warmth and be safe!
