Touches of Farmhouse decor in the Milk Glass Cabinet


Cleaning the built in display cabinet is quite a job but I am always so pleased with the end result.    H helped me so it took half the time......about 2 hours.      He is really a much better cleaner than I am and way more careful with the pretties!

I decided to take off the ruffled scarf that I've had on the mantel for several years and give the fireplace a fresh look for 2018.

Valentine Tree


Well,  the tree's won out! 
  I have been debating over whether or not to leave the two  white slim trees up in the kitchen after Christmas      I removed all the Christmas ornaments this morning  .......and the next thing I knew,   I was filling them with Valentine decor!

Adding Sparkle to the area above the Range Hood


I added some sparkle to the area over the range hood by hanging a mirror on it.    I just love the new look! 
I have a big chandelier hanging over the island that's across from the range.   The mirror reflects all that wonderful chandelier light plus most of the walls around the kitchen.

Silver White Winter Farmhouse Vingette


I created a winter farm on the kitchen pass thru this morning.     It's hard not to include some touches of spring in my winter vignettes.   We've had some cold days recently,  but the forecast for the next 10 days is mid 50's and high 60's.

Winter Kitchen



This cold I've got is really getting on my nerves......can't get anything done but cough!     After I share the progress I've made putting away Christmas in the kitchen    I think I'll take a long winters nap.....lol! 
 It was 60 degrees a couple of days ago here in Eastern New Mexico    but the last two days haven't got above 10 degrees with the wind chill.   Brrrrrr......

Transitioning from Christmas to Winter Decor


It's no secret to anyone that reads my blog that I love Christmas and would be happy to leave my decor up all year long.    But then how could  I look forward to putting it up if I left it out all the time.....lol!

Woodland Christmas Porch


The weather here in Eastern New Mexico is still pretty mild this time of year,    so on most nights we can sit on the porch and enjoy hot chocolate and goodies after dinner.

Christmas Entry


I went with the pinks that I love so much in the entry when I decorated it for Christmas .........but I couldn't help but add a pop of red to the mix!

And the Stockings were Hung


Does anyone else have a "hoard" of Christmas stockings!      As styles have changed over the years,    I have bought new stockings to hang on the fireplace.     I need to get rid of some of them   but there are too many memories attached!

Ballet Themed Christmas Bedroom



I added some Christmas touches to the bedroom that we "loosely" call Kyleigh's bedroom.     Her clothes are in the closet .....also her toys.......but she still sleeps in Gram's bed the 2-3 nights a week that she's here!
