Roses In Winter!


Roses in winter, is there anything better? Well, maybe "real" roses in winter but this will have to do for now.


Every year after Christmas is over the task of taking down the Christmas decorations and putting up the "everyday" decorations comes. And every year I can't remember were I put everything. I mean, I know the general location but it never looks exactly the same. It takes me that whole year to finally get things to where I like them. I guess change is good! I don't re-arrange furniture very often either. It might be because #1 doesn't like to come home and find his chair somewhere he didn't leave it. I have a big piano that sits in the corner, I really should get rid of it as it does take up a lot of space, but I don't. It does make a great display table though. I did end up putting a lot of my cream pottery on top of it. And maybe in a year I'll have that exactly where I like it!



Now, I don't want you to think it's taken me till the 15th to finally get my Christmas decorations down. It just took me awhile to post about it...really!!!


Yesterday I made a quick run to Monticellos to drop off a few items. It was looking pretty sparse in the front window so I needed to make a run. I did get a few pillows made up which is good as I have so much fabric that needs to be used up. So now I can justify buying another pretty piece of fabric when I see it! Isn't that how it goes?


I also wanted to give a "BIG" Thank you to Martha from Vintage Trifles who gave me a sweet award. It was so kind of her. If you haven't visited her blog be sure to check it out. She is a very talented artist and you will love reading her blog as well as looking at all her wonderful pictures.



Well, after previewing this post I can already see some changes coming on. I think I will add some of my old books in with the cream pottery.
Now I better be off. School is approaching very quickly. Thank you for stopping by!

Cute pillows, Debbie!! I don't even attempt to justify buying new fabric (maybe that's why I'm drowning, here..!!)

Your post was funny to me because...I actually have to take pictures of all of my arrangements of stuff before I pack it away at Christmas - so that I can refer to them when I need to put it all back!! But this year, I am trying out different placements - and it's going to mean packing some things away - or- dare I say it? - maybe even finally doing a bit of purging. I'm not sure....

I am so glad you had some empty spaces at Monticello. When I was there last, my friend Diane bought two of your pillows. Love the new ones you made.

Hope to see you soon!
