|My little cabinet looks pretty empty without anything in it.|
|I boxed up the Nativity that was on the fireplace mantel and replaced it with a winter picture that I will leave up until Valentines.....or maybe even spring.|
|The winter tree's that were in my Christmas vignettes will all get boxed up together later.|
|This lit picture is one I picked up at Kirkland's when they had them 50% off. You get a lot of bang for the buck for $20.|
|The antlers and deer will be some of the last things that I box up.|
|The Christmas mantel for 2015 was one of the hardest ones I've had to part with....it was my all time favorite.|
|I also put away the New Year's eve decor that was on this table.|
Working on same thing today - it was actually hard to part with all of Christmas - was my favorite in many years. Sure wish I would've blogged it - ah well, it's a busy month.ReplyDelete
I keep all my white flocked stuff - and deer and mercury and snowflake things, I do like the shimmer and lightness of my "winter" things - but it is certainly odd keeping it out when we haven't had any snow yet - is weirdest warmest winter of my life, very very strange.
Anyway, I sure enjoyed all your awesome decor this year, Penny.
Happy New Year to you, dear lady!
I do the same...leave all the snowmen and related stuff out til I decorate for Valentine's Day, More bang for the buck!ReplyDelete
I have taken my christmas decor down now but only because we were away some of the holidays and did not want to tidy away when we came back, so we came back to a frsh tidy house. To be honest I would struggle to take any of your decor down as it is quite simply beautiful. Have a lovely new year and many more home decor ideas. Leah xxxReplyDelete

You set a lovely winter vignette.ReplyDelete
Happy New Year, Penny! Doing the same thing you are. Boxing up Christmas but leaving out some of the evergreen, pinecones etc. Here's hoping this year is a good one..ReplyDelete
I love the way you leave Winter out. Can't wait to see your Valentine display. :)

Your white winter display is so pretty. I've actually already packed up all of our holiday items and will be decorating for Valentine's Day soon.ReplyDelete
It's all so lovely, I do the same thing, transition from Christmas to winter, but I have a very big collection of snowmen that I put up :)ReplyDelete
Oh my Penny, your decorating is just so magical! It is hard to put away such beauty! Your hallway cabinet is so wonderful. What a great idea to make it more winter than Christmas so you could keep it up. How wonderful that this was such an enjoyable Christmas.ReplyDelete
I know I put my kitchen away today----and it's sad to see it go---maybe tomorrow, I can come up with an alternative---like ivy with lights...lol. I miss the lights, already!ReplyDelete
Christmas is hard to put away. But the lovely memories we've made will keep us warm during the long winter months. I lOVE your winter scene picture. I have a "thing" for barns and farms and yours is lovely! Thanks for sharing and Happy New Year, Penny!ReplyDelete
I really like your lighted picture! So pretty!ReplyDelete
Your house is always a beacon of the season. Looking forward to what you'll put up next.ReplyDelete
Happy New Year Penny. I enjoyed looking at your pretty Christmas decor. Thanks for sharing this with us at Cooking and Crafting with J & J.ReplyDelete
Happy New Year, Penny. I am taking down all the Christmas decorations tomorrow. I decorate with a lot of Snow people and other Winter themes, I keep them up till Spring. Of course, there is Valentine's Day decorations to look forward to.ReplyDelete
I'll be packing up tomorrow and Thursday . . . and Friday, haha, it will take a few days. It's so nice to leave the winter things out. I love your picture, perfect for winter. I'll leave some Christmas lights up just to keep the dreary January days at bay.ReplyDelete
Happy New Year to you!
I love the lighted picture...it adds some cheer to otherwise cold & dismal days.ReplyDelete
Happy New Year!
So pretty! Visiting from Dream, Create, InspireReplyDelete
I've left some 'winter' too... makes perfect senseReplyDelete
I love your lighted winter scene picture. So pretty. It is a beautiful scene, and I like how you've arranged your wintry trees next to it. I've only begun to transition from Christmas to winter, so this is great inspiration for me!ReplyDelete
SO pretty! :) Love your decor ideas!ReplyDelete

I am in LOVE with that library ladder! What a treasure. I am leaving my snowmen out too. In fact that is my post today:) Your mantle was GORGEOUS!!!! Have a beautiful day!ReplyDelete
Your Christmas was very special and I know it was hard to take apart. I am slowly transitioning into winter with some Valentine's Day thrown in. Thank you for sharing your lovely home at Vintage Charm.ReplyDelete
I love that lit up winter picture. Definitely takes the sting out of taking down Christmas decor. Love the idea of transitioning to beautiful winter decor. So beautiful!ReplyDelete
