My table in the foyer of our home is the only thing that
changes with the seasons. It lets me have a little fun
with the seasons while keeping it simple and in one
place as opposed to going crazy all over the house.
So, down came Christmas and up went winter!
Mr. Penguin got to stay, since he's so icy.
The chalkboard saying turned wintry, too!
I decided to do something fun and display my vintage
snowflake brooches. The old frame is from the auction trash,
and the mat is from an old white sweater. When I got the idea
just before New Years, I thought I'd look on ebay to see if
I could find initial brooches to spell out winter. I got lucky
and found all 6 letters in one evening. So fun!
I love how it turned out!
The crystal bowl and scale stayed. I pulled out the things that
were definitely Christmasy and let the snowy pine cones
and snowmen hang out for the winter.
I tacked crocheted snowflakes around the cork frame of
the chalkboard and a few snowy themed pictures.
This one is of my great grandma, sledding with her two boys,
taken in the 1920's. My grandpa is the boy on the right.
This pretty frosty hobnail dish was in the auction trash, too!
I love to have a candy dish to greet visitors.
I picked these chocolates for their silvery wrappers,
but they're quite tasty, too!
So, I guess the decorating is done until March 21st,
the first day of spring!
