Although I am already missing the twinkling lights and Christmas decor.........at the same time, I am excited about starting the new year with a fresh less cluttered look for our home.
Note that I said LESS clutter........not "NO" clutter!
My style of decorating involves quite a bit of clutter......lol!
I drew up the plans for a farmhouse barn for the Christmas mantel and H made my plans come to life. I will use the barn year round and am already excited about including it in my spring, summer, and fall decor.
I replaced the Santa that was in front of the barn with a sweet child ready to play in the snow.
I packed up the rest of the Christmas decor on the mantel and put a couple of deer vignettes in their place
The lit flocked tree's on each side of the fireplace were packed away and replaced with some simple "naked" trees.
I like to have something under my tree's , so since the presents were all gone, I placed a sleeping lamb under each of the tree's.
I also decorated the display cabinets that are on each side of the fireplace.
Continuing with my winter farmhouse theme on the display cabinets, I used pictures of cows in a snow covered field.
Each vignette also had birds feeding on seed covered balls.
Almost all of the Christmas is packed away now, all except the Nativity which I will leave up until the 6th of January.
Til next time........
