Winter Mantel Featuring A Magnolia Garland

Hello Dear Readers!

I hate to admit this but I am still de-Christmasfying the house.

I have two more trees to take down and then call it a day.

The first thing that was removed was the Christmas decor on the mantel.

That came down first as it was fast and easy to “dis-mantel”

The mantel is also the first area that was transitioned from Christmas to Winter.

I knew what I was going to do as I received something beautiful right before Christmas.

It was a gorgeous magnolia garland from the fine people of The Magnolia Company.

I won this garland through a giveaway campaign that they were offering on Instagram. Yay!

Due of time constraints, I could not use it in my Holiday decor;

however, this garland had dried/preserved so beautifully that is was perfect

for the Winter Mantel featuring a magnolia garland.

A Staging Area Turned Into a Pretty Display

Hello Dear Readers!

I am sure that many of you tuck away things to make room for Christmas decor as I do.

I had many  blue and white pieces throughout the house and I kept placing those

pieces that have been displaced in one area.

That area was a demilune table that is in a little hallway that leads to the master bedroom.

As the Christmas decor was being put away, I went to that hallway area

to retrieve some blue and white pieces. But then as I gazed upon all the pretties

on the table and also underneath . . . I thought why not?!!

So a staging area turned into a pretty display of blue and white was born.

A Year In Flowers

Happy New Year Dear Readers!

I hope that you all had a most wonderful Christmas and celebration welcoming in the New Year.

To start off the New Year, I thought I would go back and present the many floral arrangements

that I had the pleasure of creating.

I love creating pretty floral arrangements which led me to create Floral Fridays

and then I thought, what better than to add more friends to offer their beautiful

talents of floral arranging … and now it has become Monday Morning Blooms.

It just keeps getting better! …. So for now, I would love to show you my many

floral arrangements that I have created in 2018. From the casual to the more elegant.

This arrangement was a “Kopy Kat” from the cover of a Southern Lady Magazine.

Yes Graylyn, There is a Santa Claus and Still Believe

I used to decorate EVERY inch of my home for Christmas,

as my home was on a a few Christmas tours for a local charity.

One of the things that we did was to put my favorite title/sentiment of the Season,

above the doors in the Media Room.

We used those stick on letters. When my hubby completed the project,

our granddaughter, who was about 4 years old at the time looked up with amazement.

She asked, “why was the name Virginia there? It should say Graylyn.”

My hubby and I  both looked at each other, smiled, and quickly there was a change made.

I then told her about the story of a little girl long ago, named Virginia.

I so love this story that I presented several years back and want to share it again.

The Sunroom Reveal at the Berry Patch House

Hello Dear Readers!

It’s been a while since I promised a peek of the sunroom at the Berry Patch House.

When we were moving in, all things that were in the category of

“I do not know where I am going to put this” …. went into the sunroom.

This room is a collection of things that do not have it’s “own home,” however,

it will different once we move into the “right-sized” house.

Please come in and see the Sunroom Reveal at the Berry Patch House.

The Magnolia Foyer and a Winner

Hello Dear Readers!

I hope you all had a most Merry weekend. Our weekend was a special one

as we had our very first snow of the season. It was a Winter Wonderland of Snow.

About  6 to 8 inches of snow fell pretty much overnight,

and by the late afternoon it started melting due to the freezing rain.

Just hope it doesn’t turn to ice!

I have a couple of “snow photos” for you to see and 

today, it is all about the Magnolia Foyer and a winner.

The foyer in the Berry Patch house is not large,

so simple Christmas decor is all it needs.
