Winter Decorating

Shortly after the New Year I took down all our Christmas decorations. On the one hand I am sad the holidays are over but, on the other, I won't miss the clutter the decorations cause. Despite loving the uncluttered feel of my home, it does start to feel a little bare after a few weeks.

Then I got to thinking. Just because the holidays are over doesn't mean you can't continue to decorate (sparingly, of course) for the winter. Here are some great ideas I may try.

Paper covered coffee tins dressed up with pinecones and branches are cozy and evoke the snow covered trees outside my window.

Oh man.. I’m putting this post up before Christmas because there is always a BIG question after opening up all the presents Christmas day & after the Christmas tree comes down, how do I decorate my house for winter?! Of course I will be showing you how I decorate at our house for winter here …:
