It is a sad time of year. The Christmas decor comes down, the Christmas movies stop playing and the cookies are all gone (thanks to someone other than me that lives here, whom is graciously known as the cookie monster at this time of year)
The sparkle and twinkles are dimmed but, with that comes the relaxing calm of our winter decor. My aversion to colour gets strong at this time of year, and I really enjoy the whites and neutrals like the outdoors. My branch fetish jumps into full swing and I just want to snuggle up in my fur blankets.
the front foyer doesn"t change too dramatically but the birds are back at their perch.
return of the conks.
our dining room tablescape. the barrel stave candleholder was a handmade Christmas gift from my winemaker brother. He is off to Australia to make more wine for 6 months on Saturday, and I will miss him a lot.
