Winter Decor

Good Morning All,
A couple of photos to show you this morning of some seasonal tabletops.
This is the top of the TV cabinet. I always keep the picture of Granny and her three boys there (my Dad standing next to her), and a lamp. I traded out the lighted evergreen for some ivy, twigs and red berries and three snowmen.
The side table that sits by Mr. Tennis' chair. I had a green velveteen runner for the holidays. It is gone and I have a little moose family and my flickering holly candle sitting there now.
It is mighty chilly here in Illinois( 9 degrees), and snow is expected this week. Yay!

  4. I LOVE your home! I always get weak in the knees for capes and yours is so beautifully warm&cozy!!! LOVE IT!!! How wonderful that you have that picture of your Grandmother and her three boys, "LUCKY,LUCKY YOU"!!! and I too love to decorate with wintery decor and ease out the Christmas... Maybe it's because we live in cold winter areas that we do this... BUT I LOVE the snowmen AND OF COURSE those Moose!!!
    Thank you for sharing, AND Stay Warm!!!
    Hugs,

  6. We have the faintest dusting of snow here this morning - just enough to brighten things up, but it will be gone by 10.

  11. Hi Robin...

    Wow...sounds like ya'll are getting the snow this weekend. We are too...they're saying 6-10" with wind. That means blizzard...eeks! It sure looks like you've made yourself a cozy little place to enjoy a cold winter's day though! I love your moose family...they're adorable! Such a pretty winter time vignette! Thank you for sharing it with us for the Sunday Favorites repost party!

    Stay warm and enjoy your Sunday, my friend!

  24. I agree, table tops are a great way to display items. It's alway a pleasure to create that way.

  25. It looks so cozy, and a great place to be when it's so c-c-c-cold outside!

  26. Very cute tabletops! I like the moose, they are cute. I had to do a double take on that photo cause I thought something had splattered on your lampshade. LOL! It was your photo cropping. LOL! It's late my eyes are tired. I wanted to let you know the Snowflakes came from Michaels. I got them at their after Christmas sale last week, 80% off. They come in boxes of 8. Good Luck! :)

  27. Hello there! First let me say that I love your house--great winter displays too! I was bestowed a "stylish blogger award" and part of the requirements is to "pay it forward." Out paths have crossed at least once and I found you again and thought you deserved the award too! You can get the button and see the rules tomorrow on my blog toileinthefamily.blogspot.com

    I'm following along now!

  28. I love that your pretty vignette includes a picture of your grandmother. I always keep a picture on display of my grandmother and included it in one of my posts. They are such sweet treasures.

  29. Now...why didn't I think of that. I could have left out my snowmen..(yes, I know I don't have any snow!) and I wouldn't feel so left out! :)
    NEXT year I will do that. Seperate Christmas from Winter and then use it until Valentines! :)
    YOU are so smart!
