After all the Christmas decorations had been put away I had a few bare spots around the house. I did some re-arranging of candles, knick-knacks, etc. but I also bought a few new things for my entryway.
I was all set to get some kind of floral arrangment for the table when I saw these pretty stacking boxes. Grace and Emily talked me into getting them. ;0)
I also found a metal envelope holder that I'm going to use for out going mail. The little plate holds antique Victorian calling cards that my friend, Kimberly sent me.
Last fall, I moved my ficus tree to the other side of my hutch. I had an Autumn and Christmas picture for that spot but now that the holidays were over I needed a new picture of some kind.
I got an herb calendar last week but I'm not sure if I like it there or not. What do you think?
Here is a closeup of January's picture.
I use these candles year round and just change out the decorative rings. For Christmas I had made tiny wreaths for the backs of my dining chairs from this white and gold bead garland. I re-used two of them for these candles.
My fireplace is back to normal but I did add my cinnamon stick candles from Christmas and a simple basket of pinecones on the hearth.
The windowsills on both sides of the fireplace have small amber candles that make the room cozy at night.

Thanks for looking at my wintertime decorations!
