Beautiful Winter DIYs at All About Home 181



Hey everyone, Welcome to All About Home #181!!! I hope everyone is doing well, and finding some enjoyment during the middle of winter. I enjoy all the seasons, but find the cold and snow to be something I'd rather "fast forward" through. Today we have ice under snow, and I'm enjoying watching the tons of birds at the feeders. Thanks so much for coming by each week and sharing all your fun posts and inspiration with all of us. We appreciate your participation and support!

How to Make a Moss Covered Heart



I've always loved using natural elements in seasonal decor and floral arrangements. If it's made of twigs and moss, dried leaves, nuts, acorns, pinecones, dried flowers etc. I'm on it. When I can create something that's holiday related and I can use it year after year, then all the more fun.

Valentine's Inspiration at All About Home #180



Hey everyone, Welcome to All About Home #180!!! I hope you all are doing well, staying healthy, and finding some creativity after the busy-ness of the Christmas season. After the holidays my creative battery needs to be recharged a bit. I've been playing with Valentine's Day decor and putting a few vignettes together. And then I restyled the Holiday Cupboard for February, always a fun dish project.

Winter Inspiration at All About Home #179



Hey everyone, I hope you all are doing well. Things are pretty quiet around here and I've been trying to get a little cleaning done. I've started to think about Valentine's Day with a few strategic vignettes around the house.

Winter Farmtable in the Garden Room




I've come to realize when transitioning from one season or holiday to the next, that I need to think about my floral arrangements early on. I'm a big believer in keeping my decorative floral containers true to season and reflecting what I might see in nature.

All About Home 178: Winter Decor DIYs



Hey friends, I hope you've had a great first week of 2023! I'm still in a bit of "refresh to winter" mode and putting a few Christmas decor stragglers away. It usually takes me most of January to get it all corralled and packed away. Just today I was working on things and had a sudden pang for anthing relating to "spring".

Winter Whites Tabletop Vignette



I don't share this little table often because it tends to be a catch all for whatever I'm putting together in the Garden Room. But it has a sweet little shelf where most of my ironstone pitchers live year round and my vintage silver tray and a mix and match coffee service. It turned out that it was a perfect spot with just the right amount of space to pull together a "winter white" look for these early days of January.

Fun Spring Inspiration at All About Home Link Party #133

Hello friends and Welcome
 to the All About Home Link Party!

We may thaw out a bit this week, as we're supposed to get into the upper 60's. I love all the seasons but I'm ready for Spring. I imagine most of you are feeling the same. This week it's all about some fun Spring-y inspiration.

Thank you so much for taking the time to come by and share what you're up to this week. We're always excited to seeing all the great DIYs, decor, crafts, gardening, recipes, and seasonal fun that you're all creating.

 On another more serious note, most of us know this has been a long sad week with the invasion of Ukraine. We also have lost two lovely talented ladies here in blogland. Paula from Virginia Sweet Pea and Michelle of The Painted Hinge. Please join me in praying for strength and peace for their families and the Ukrainian people.

Early Spring Faux Daffodil Centerpiece

It's cold, snowy, sleet-y, and generally yucky outside but there's a little bit of Spring in the Garden Room. I really like to keep my floral arrangements and decorating "seasonal", with what is happening outside be what is happening indoors. It's about time for the Daffodils to show up; their happy little faces peeking up through the cold garden soil and even snow.

All About Home Link Party #132

Hello friends and Welcome
 to the All About Home Link Party!

I'm counting down the days to March and the unofficial start of Spring. How about all of you? We are in an up/down cycle of cold weather and snow/ice then warmer weather up to the 50's and low 60's. The plants and little critters aren't sure what to be doing. I even saw my last year's baby chipmunk out running around on the back porch this last weekend. "I'm ready to ditch the hibernation folks... Is it Spring yet?" Yep, I agree! 

Thank you so much for taking the time to come by and share what you're up to this week. We're always excited to seeing all the great DIYs, decor, crafts, gardening, recipes, and seasonal fun that you're all creating.

Scottish Tartan Throws for Decorating

Hello friends, how's your mid-February going? Warm... cold... a little of both? Since it's still February and currently 40 degrees today, I guess technically it's okay if I share a little something in the warm/snuggly/cuddly category. I'm talking about Tartan wool throws and blankets. I have several that are vintage, that I use for Thanksgiving and Christmastime decor. I just love anything Tartan plaid and I'm a teensy bit obsessed with all things Burberry or resembling that particular plaid.

Valentine's Day Decor at All About Home #130

Hello friends and Welcome
 to the All About Home Link Party!

February really came in with a wallop for so many of us, especially here in the Midwest. We had 5 days of rain, sleet, ice and snow, and I know many of you to the east of us had it even worse. My husband is retired as of last year, so we've been able to stay put and not risk being out in this stuff. We didn't have much ice accumulate so our area escaped the power outages this time. Hope you all are starting to thaw out and not letting bad weather get you down. We can actually see the streets and our driveway today!

Valentine Vignettes in the Garden Room

Hi Friends, are you all digging out of the latest snow and ice storm like we are?
We had a big blast of ol' man winter come through last Wednesday and Thursday with a layer of ice and then about 8-9 inches of snow on top. We stayed in and I had to postpone a doctor's appointment, but other than that we managed to keep our power and no ice damage (that we know of). Valentine's Day is definitely "winter" around here so in my Valentine decor I still have out some evergreen and bottle brush trees mixed in.

Vintage Botanical Valentine Entry

I wanted to put together a romantic Valentine's Day vignette in the Entry, but I wanted to do something just a little different than my usual Valentine decor. Any time I can create a setting with a "vintage garden/botanical" theme I'm excited, because vintage-garden goods are some of my favorite items.

Oh my goodness, this is the last day of January, friends. How's the weather where you are? Hopefully you are warm and cozy and staying out of the snow and ice.

Easy Ivy Topiary for Valentine's Day

Hi Friends, hope you all are well and staying warm. And I'm hoping all our friends on the East Coast are safe and staying home somewhere away from the blizzardy snow and winds. Although we're having a sunny day here in the lower Midwest it's still cold and shivery. Anytime I can sit still for awhile you'll find me wrapped up in an electric blanket or throw. It's days like today that make me want to play with some plants and then put out a few vintage Valentine's to brighten up the house and shelves.

A Winter's Walk in the Holiday Cupboard

Hello friends, since Valentine's Day will be here in a few weeks, I knew I needed to share my January edition of the Holiday Cupboard. January has been cold and often dreary here, but I'm trying to be present and look for the good to enjoy each season... including winter. One of the fun ways I celebrate each month and season is to refresh my old pie safe, aka "The Holiday Cupboard".
