Vintage Elements on the January Baker's Rack

Before the calendar changes over to February and we find ourselves indulging in all shades of pink and rosebuds and hearts and Valentines, I'm finally able to share some of the vintage goods that I've brought together here in the Kitchen Sitting Area.

So many people have had that nasty flu bug that's roaming around and has stopped them cold for several weeks. I've not had the flu, but before Christmas I had a run-of-the-mill cold, and after Christmas it all managed to come back at me with a bladder infection that has been a real killjoy. So that's my excuse for the blahs. After Christmas and before the sickies I had put together a "neutral winter decor" look, and I've really been enjoying it.

I've realized "neutrals" mean different things to different people. For me I gathered up "natural" colors and textures with nothing bold or bright. I found a few pieces I don't think I've used on the BR before, like this little wicker compartmentalized basket, an old cardboard print, and some antique crockery ware that I stole  borrowed from my Hubby.

I brought out a few of my little English Cottages; 
a salt and pepper and sugar and creamer.

The new whitewashed olive bucket that held the Christmas Tree here on the bench,
now holds some faux winter greenery and some vintage gardening tools.

I have a habit of taking pics at different times, then using them in the same post. Did you notice a certain little gray cow creamer? She was a Christmas gift from my younger daughter.

I needed a smaller piece of Ironstone, and this petite hexagon tureen fit perfectly.

Beaufort has changed his seasonal scarf. This one is a Burberry knock-off.

Hard to see because of the bright lighting, but those are antler sheds in the Seed Box.

My little French Shepherd Girl Lamp
is here as always.

I have more to share before February.
Hope we all stay well...

Neutral Winter Home Decor Blog Hop

Hello Everyone, and welcome to Day 3 of the Neutral Winter Home Decor Blog Hop! If you're coming from Jaclyn's blog, Fancy Pants Mommy Company I'm so glad you're here! With all the weeks of Christmas decorating we all did, I know I was really ready for a different look around the house on January 1. I always look forward to putting all the Christmas decor snug in their tubs waiting for next season. A little space to breath and a fresh clean look is a positive way for me to start the New Year.

A January Re-Set for Winter Decor

How do you like to decorate when all the Christmas decor is packed away? Maybe it's just something that doesn't include glitter. Do you like to do something fresh and new? I know I love to start a clean slate in January with the brand new year, and that usually means minimizing "color" and using a more neutral lens with my decor.

Wooden Crate Refresh and an Ironstone "Candleholder"

Before I say anything else, I want to say thank you to everyone who read my previous post on my health update and family "goings on". Those are hard posts to write, but I feel like I need to be open and honest in my blogging, just as I try to be in my everyday life. It's difficult for me to share a minor little DIY or decor update when there are things going on in life that are important. Having said that, I also don't want to be burdening you all with personal stuff constantly. So thank you for your comments and prayers, and for sending good thoughts my way. I want to share things with you all in case something I'm dealing with can maybe help one of you or someone you know.
