January tweaking...

It's been at least two weeks since I've put away Christmas, but I think I've finally tweaked, added, removed, rearranged, and fussed with my Entry table and Living Room Mantel just enough so that it's presentable. And I've realized that I haven't been happy with photos because of this cold January light that has it all looking like  I'm shooting in a walk-in freezer. brrrr...

OK, so here's what I've come up with for the Entry.
My New Year's tree is put away for next year,
 and my amaryllis have reappeared.

My sweet birdie on the book stack is back
 and one of my old German Calenders.

The Mantel got a cleaning and a pare down.

and a single amaryllis in each of the Woolf Pottery vases.

I found this iron jardiniere last Fall.
It's filled with winter potpourri and a small wreath perched on top.
I was going for a "topiary" look, 
I think it looks better at a distance...
maybe with one eye closed.
(many of my projects fall into this category)

In photos my ceiling always looks dirty because of the shadows.
it's really not, nor is it wonky.
This huge mirror just really distorts things.
(It appears that I might be living in a Hobbit House in the woods.)

 This is the hardest time of the year for me to find my decorating mojo. I know some of you have expressed that same malady. Next week I'll be adding in a few things for Valentine's Day. I don't go all out... just a little Romance. And I feel a sunporch re-do coming.

Hope you're having a great weekend, and in case you missed my last post on figuring out some of the current computer hassles, just scroll down to the next post on "Troubleshooting".

see you tomorrow for
