Winter Bare

There is a dusting of white snow on our ground and the trees are bare.  Serene, peaceful.  Inside the house our rooms are sharing that look - bare after the abundance of Christmas decor... and quiet. 

I've added a white glittered banner to my arched window.  Simple...


Some Christmas items have remained, blending in with the serene winter scene...


These horn ornaments on our mantel have a great vintage look to them:

And I just couldn't pack this lovely heart ornament away, found on the fabulous visit to Nesting.

Snowflakes inside and out...

Time passes quietly in the winter...




And I must share with you this incredible doll crown I won in a giveaway from Amy of Vintage Market Place.  Thank you Amy!  It blends perfectly in our daughter's room.  Amy has such talent with her creations!
 
I'll be sharing these peaceful whites over at Kathleen's White Wednesday
Enjoy a quiet and serene winter!

Everything is so beautiful and I agree with you, everything looks so simple once the decorations get put away. I also left a few things out that seemed more 'winter' to me than 'Christmas':)

Your home is so lovely!

Your rooms are looking so calm and serene! That is what I love so much about decorating with whites! Your banner is so cute and I love the crown you won!!

I envy you that you have a little snow...we are still dry with none in sight. Today it is 50 degrees!!

Have a wonderful week, Susan!

Everything looks so winter-white-wonderful! Love your silvery horn. I also have a hard time packing all the decorations away... I always leave my Christmas candleholders out, along with my velvety Christmas florals.
